1 I have been to Jesus and He saved my soul,
Praise His holy name!
I but touched His garments and He made me whole,
Praise His holy name!

Refrain:
Praise His holy name, His holy name!
He has cleansed my soul and set me free;
I am happy now and will ever be,
Praise His holy name!

2 Now I’m telling sinners Jesus saves from sin,
Praise His holy name!
And His blood can make the foulest sinner clean,
Praise His holy name! [Refrain]

3 I’m rejoicing daily in His light and love,
Praise His holy name!
And I’m pressing onward to my home above,
Praise His holy name! [Refrain]

4 I will love and serve Him while I live below,
Praise His holy name!
And I’ll serve Him better when to heav’n I go,
Praise His holy name! [Refrain]

Rufus H. McDaniel was ordained in the Christian church in 1873. He found much joy in church music. He began writing hymns in the 1880's. He wrote, "I feel in my soul that God has something for me to do in brightening the experience of struggling souls. My chief desire is to be a blessing, if possible, to my fellow-men through these hymns and thereby glorify God in the name of his dear son 'whose I am and whom I serve.'" Dianne Shapiro, from "The Singers and Their Songs: sketches of living gospel hymn writers" by Charles Hutchinson Gabriel (Chicago: The Rodeheaver Company, 1916) Go to person page >
