1. Jesus! sweetest theme in earth or Heav’n!
Dearer name was never known;
By th’eternal Father it was giv’n
To His co-eternal Son.
Jesus, blessèd Jesus, spotless Son of God,
Dying to redeem us by His precious blood;
I would speak His praise to all the earth abroad,
Glory to His peerless name!
2. Borne by holy messengers of light,
From a land of golden day,
Thru the silence of the starry night—
List to what the angels say. [Refrain]
3. To the heart it speaks of blessings rare,
And our lips repeat the name,
Hail, belovèd, Fairest of the fair,
Now and evermore the same. [Refrain]
4. O my soul would join the angel choir,
Chanting His amazing love;
For I feel within a sacred fire,
Kindled in the courts above. [Refrain]
