1 Jesus, the name we love so well,
Its wondrous sweetness who can tell?
Our hearts enraptured on it dwell—
Jesus, precious Jesus.

O name so sweet! O name I love!
I’ll ever sing thy wondrous praise;
The charm of earth and heav’n above—
Jesus, precious Jesus.

2 No other name can e’er be found
To save from sin the earth around;
There’s power in its melting sound—
Jesus, precious Jesus. [Refrain]

3 These longing hearts of ours oft yearn
Fresh secrets of thy love to learn;
And deep within our spirits burn—
Jesus, precious Jesus. [Refrain]

4 Thy name to cheer us when we weep—
To hear above the waters deep,
Resounding in thy conq’ring step—
Jesus, precious Jesus. [Refrain]
