1 It fell upon a sinner’s ear,
That sweetest name—Jesus!
It banished all His doubts and fears,
That mightiest name—Jesus!

Then sound it out on hill and plain,
That wondrous name—Jesus!
Echo it o’er and o’er again,
That glorious name—Jesus!

2 ’Twas whispered to a wearied heart,
That cheering name—Jesus!
It bade all gloom and care depart,
That blessèd name—Jesus! [Refrain]

3 It brought the wanderer back to God,
That tender name—Jesus!
It guideth to your blest abode,
That precious name—Jesus! [Refrain]

4 ’Tis dearer far than fame or wealth,
That loveliest name—Jesus!
’Twill rescue from eternal death,
That saving name—Jesus! [Refrain]
