1 Jesus, O precious Name,
By heaven’s herald spoken,
Jesus, O holy Name,
Of love divine the token.
Jesus, in Thy dear Name
This new year we begin;
Bless Thou its opening door,
Inscribe Thy Name within.

2 Jesus, O precious Name,
In Thee our hopes are centered,
In Thee, O mighty Name,
This new year we have entered.
Though seasons come and go,
Thou, Lord, art still the same;
Immovable is still
That solid Rock, Thy Name.

3 Jesus, O precious Name,
Thou bringest peace and gladness,
Jesus, O worshipped Name,
Dispelling all our sadness,
In hallowed temple halls
Thy sacred echo rings,
While heaven’s ransomed host
Thy praise in glory sings.

Amen.

Anna Hoppe was born on May 7, 1889 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She left school after the eighth grade and worked as a stenographer. She began writing patriotic verses when she was very young and by the age of 25 she was writing spiritual poetry. After some of her poems appeared in the Northwestern Lutheran, a periodical of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod, they came to the attention of Dr. Adolf Hult of Augustana Seminary, Rock Island, Illinois. He influenced her to write her Songs for the Church Year (1928). Several hymnals include her work, which was usually set to traditional chorale melodies, although she also made a number of translations. She died on August 2, 1941 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
