1 O the sweetest name that the tongue can frame
Is Jesus, Precious Jesus;
He is strong to aid, let your hope be stayed
On Jesus, Precious Jesus.

Refrain:
Jesus alone, make Him thine own,
Blessed Jesus, Precious Jesus;
Jesus alone, make Him thine own,
Blessed Jesus, Precious Jesus.

2 In His praise unite, keep your armor bright
For Jesus, Precious Jesus;
He will clear dark skies, wipe the weeping eyes,
Blest Jesus, Precious Jesus. [Refrain]

3 When the way is drear, none the heart can cheer
Like Jesus, Precious Jesus;
Soon we’ll gather there, in the mansion fair
With Jesus, Precious Jesus. [Refrain]
