1 There is a name that on my ear
More sweet than music, lingereth;
The name of Him whom most I love,
The blessed Christ of Nazareth!

He laid His robes of glory by,
To save the world from endless death;
And I will praise Him more and more—
The blessed Christ of Nazareth!

2 That precious name how sweet it sounds,
As I pursue life’s winding path;
In storm and calm the same to me—
The blessed Christ of Nazareth! [Chorus]

3 There is a voice, my name shall speak,
As I shall yield my latest breath;
The voice that gave my spirit peace—
The blessed Christ of Nazareth! [Chorus]
