1 Sweetest name in the realms above,
Sweetest name on earth is Jesus;
Breathed in faith with a heart of love,
Sweetest name on earth is Jesus.

Balm in tears and sadness,
Hope in joy and gladness,
How it calms the troubled soul,
When the stormy waters roll;
Sweetest name on earth is Jesus.

2 Oft it comes like a whispered tone,
Sweetest name on earth is Jesus;
Name we plead at the Father’s throne,
Sweetest name on earth is Jesus. [Refrain]

3 Hailed and crowned with the purest praise,
Sweetest name on earth is Jesus;
First and last in the song we raise,
Sweetest name on earth is Jesus. [Refrain]
