1 O! I love the name of Jesus,
How it lights my weary road,
And revives my fainting spirit,
When I sink beneath the load,
And I hear His gentle whisper,
In accents sweet and mild,
“Fear not, for I am with thee,
I will keep thee, safe, My child.”

Refrain:
O! I love the name of Jesus,
Yes, I love it more and more,
And some day I’ll sing His praises,
On the everlasting shore.

2 O! I love the name of Jesus,
It is more than life to me,
And I feel that I shall know Him,
When His loving face I see,
Then I think of how He suffered,
On the cross of Calvary,
Dying there, He paid the ransom,
Of poor sinners, just like me. [Refrain]

3 O! I love the name of Jesus,
And to me ‘tis strangely sweet,
How it soothes my ev’ry sorrow,
When I’m resting at His feet,
How it fills my heart with gladness,
And my doubts and fears are stayed,
When I hear Him, sweetly calling,
“It is I, be not afraid.” [Refrain]
