Representative Text

1 Jesus! dear and hallowed name,
Falling sweetly on my ear;
Thee, above all other names,
Doth my grateful heart revere.

Precious name! holy name!
Glory is thine own;
Life and mercy come to me
Through thy grace alone.

2 Jesus! Oh, what thrills of hope
Lift my soul to noble life!
Blessed talisman of love
With me through all earthly strife. [Refrain]

3 Jesus! wondrous power and might
Dwell within that sacred name;
When I feel temptation near,
Then thy strength divine I claim. [Refrain]

4 Jesus! let me hear that name
In my hour of pain and grief,
Over all my troubled soul
Casting then its sweet relief. [Refrain]

5 Jesus! when I say farewell
To all else I hold most dear,
May that hallowed name of names
Fall upon my listening ear. [Refrain]
