Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 There is one name all names above,
Unto believers precious
Which causes hearts to glow with love,
It is the name of Jesus.

Refrain:
His name shall be Jesus,
Wonderful name, wonderful name;
His name shall be Jesus,
for He shall save His people from their sins;
His name shall be Jesus,
Wonderful name, wonderful name;
His name shall be Jesus,
for He shall save His people from their sins.

2 We have no goodness of our own,
His merits we come pleading;
He who the wine-press trod alone
Is for us interceding. [Refrain]

3 To guard us he is ever near
In waking hours or sleeping,
This one to trusting hearts so dear,
Is constant vigil keeping. [Refrain]

4 “He breaks the pow’r of cancelled sin,”
From Satan’s bondage frees us;
O where, my soul shall I begin
To praise the name of Jesus? [Refrain]

Lelia (Mrs. C.H.) Morris (1862-1929) was born in Pennsville, Morgan County, Ohio. When her family moved to Malta on the Muskingum River she and her sister and mother had a millinery shop in McConnelsville. She and her husband Charles H. Morris were active in the Methodist Episcopal Church and at the camp meetings in Sebring and Mt. Vernon. She wrote hymns as she did her housework. Although she became blind at age 52 she continued to write hymns on a 28-foot long blackboard that her family had built for her. She is said to have written 1000 texts and many tunes including "Sweeter as the years go by." Mary Louise VanDyke Go to person page >
