Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

1 O, the dearest name of all is Jesus,
Sweetest word that mortal tongues can frame,
Blessed Jesus, precious Jesus,
There is music in the Saviour’s name.

Refrain:
‘Tis the dearest name,
‘Tis the sweetest name,
It has pow’r to break the bonds of in.
Blessed Jesus,
Precious Jesus,
Thro’ His name eternal life I’ll wing.

2 O, the dearest name of all is Jesus,
Sweeter far than all the names of earth,
Blessed Jesus, precious Jesus,
‘Twas an Angel’s voice proclaim’d His birth. [Refrain]

3 O, the dearest name of all is Jesus,
Sweetest name that fills the realms above,
Blessed Jesus, precious Jesus,
I will sin of the wonders of His love. [Refrain]
