Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Representative Text

1 O the name, the name of Jesus,
How my heat it thrills!
Sweetest music floating round me,
All my soul it fills.

Refrain:
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]
