1 O Name of names the dearest,
O Friend of friends the nearest,
O Light of lights the clearest,
Jesus! Jesus!

2 The grace of heaven showing,
The peace of God bestowing,
The love divine, outflowing,
Jesus! Jesus!

3 The Comforter in sorrow,
The Guardian of the morrow,
The Strength whose power we borrow,
Jesus! Jesus!

4 The Way to realms supernal,
The truth forever vernal,
The Life complete, eternal,
Jesus! Jesus!

5 The Saviour true and tender,
The Shelter and Defender,
The Hope none can surrender,
Jesus! Jesus!

6 O Name of names the dearest,
O Friend of friends the nearest,
O Light of lights the clearest,
Jesus! Jesus!
