Representative Text

1 There is peace only in His name,
Only in the name of Jesus;
And that peace, wretched souls may claim,
Only in the name of Jesus!

Refrain:
Name of Jesus, Name of Jesus!
When you pray, O pray in His name,
Go to God with every care;
Tell it to Him in your pray’r,
Only in the name of Jesus.

2 There is strength only in His name,
Only in the name of Jesus;
And man can his wild passions tame,
Only in the name of Jesus. [Refrain]

3 Tell to God, what your sins have been,
Only in the name of Jesus;
He can make you all pure within,
Only in the name of Jesus. [Refrain]

4 Tell to God what your weakness is,
Only in the name of Jesus.
He is strong, and to help is His,
Only in the name of Jesus. [Refrain]
