1 Call Him by His name of Jesus,
Name all other names above!
From all guilt He hath redeemed us,
Lord of life and King of love.

Call Him by His name of Jesus,
Sweetest name in heav’n or earth;
Blessed, hallowed name of Jesus,
Who can fully speak its worth.

2 For the wounded broken spirit,
This the healing balm we need;
We will bring no other merit,
Jesus is the name we plead. [Refrain]

3 Tell the blessed name of Jesus,
Unto those who need its cheer,
It will comfort those in sorrow
And will drive away all fear. [Refrain]

4 Softly breathe the name of Jesus,
When the eve of life shall come;
His the first glad voice to greet us
And to speak a “welcome home.” [Refrain]

5 Glory to the Lord who sought us,
Prince amid the white-robed throng!
“Praise to Him who loved and bought us,”
Burden of our gladsome song. [Refrain]
