Representative Text

1 There is no name on earth so sweet
As Jesus’ name to me;
From sin he drew my wand’ring feet,
From guilt he set me free.

Refrain:
Hallelujah! Jesus saves me!
From my sins he sets me free;
Precious Savior, mine forever,
Thine I’ll ever be.

2 I’ve many trials here below
And many wearing cares,
But Jesus lightens all my woe
And all my trouble shares. [Refrain]

3 So hand in hand I’ll walk with him
Till life’s short day is o’er,
And when mine eyes in death grow dim,
On earth I’ll sing once more: [Refrain]

4 And when, among the saints in light,
I see him face to face,
Enraptured with the glorious sight,
I’ll praise his matchless grace. [Refrain]
