1 If you speak a word of kindness,
In His name,
It may cure a sinner’s blindness,
In His name!

Refrain:
In His name,
Who, from condemnation, frees us!
In His name,
In the blessed name of Jesus!
In His name,
Who, from condemnation, frees us,
In His name,
In the blessed name of Jesus!

2 Is a cup of water given,
In His name,
There shall come reward from heaven,
In His name! [Refrain]

3 If the seeds of truth be scattered
In His name,
There shall be a harvest gathered
In His name! [Refrain]

4 If we truly have repented
In His name,
As our faith is, ‘twill be granted,
In His name! [Refrain]
