How my heart it thrills!
Sweetest music floating round me,

O the precious name of Jesus,
Breathe it low in pray’r;
At the cross of Jesus bending,
God will hear thee there.

2 Breathe, O breathe the name of Jesus,
Low before the throne;
Owning all your sin and weakness,
Trusting Him alone. [Refrain]

3 When the heart is sad and lonely,
Sinful tho’ it be,
Thou canst plead the name of Jesus,
Jesus died for thee. [Refrain]
