1 Have you ever heard a sweeter name than this,
Awaking such a sense of joy and blessedness,
And filling you with holy rest and heav’nly peace,
The name, the precious name of Jesus?

Refrain:
Jesus name, His precious name,
It is sweeter than all other names to me;
‘Tis my comfort night and day,
And it cheers me on the way,
And in heav’n I hope His blessed face to see.

2 Have you ever known a dearer friend than He,
A friend upon whose arm you could more safely lean?
His name has cheered your heart and kept your life serene,
The name, the precious name of Jesus. [Refrain]

3 Have you ever lived in fellowship more dear,
Or found a friend in troublous times so very near?
His name has been your comfort, bro’t you light and cheer,
The name, the precious name of Jesus. [Refrain]
