Representative Text

1 Dearest name in earth or heaven,
Sweetest name my heart hath known,
By the Father it was given
To his well beloved Son.

Chorus:
'Tis the holiest name,
'Tis the holiest name;
From the Father's lips to the earth it came.
Bro't by angels of light,
In the stillness of night,
Was the dear, dear name of Jesus.

2 To my heart it brings a blessing,
And my lips take up the strain,
And his wond'rous name confessing,
Tell its sweetness o'er again. [Chorus]

3 Oh, my soul would swell the chorus,
Singing his redeeming love,
And ascribe eternal praises
To the name all names above. [Chorus]
