1 There is a name I love to hear,
Jesus, blessed Jesus!
It falls like music on my ear,
Jesus, blessed Jesus!

Refrain:
No other is so dear to me,
As Jesus, Lamb of Calvary,
His precious life He gave for me,
Jesus, blessed Jesus!

2 There is a picture in my heart,
Jesus, blessed Jesus!
It makes the loving tear-drops start,
Jesus, blessed Jesus! [Refrain]

3 There is a sacred memory,
Jesus, blessed Jesus!
Of Bethlehem to Calvary,
Jesus, blessed Jesus! [Refrain]

4 There is a home in love divine,
Jesus, blessed Jesus!
I am so glad that He is mine,
Jesus, blessed Jesus! [Refrain]
