We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

1 There is something in the name of Jesus
That brings comfort to the broken heart;
And the soul that is by sin enshrouded
Is made clean and white in ev’ry part.

There is something in that name,
There is something in that name,
There is something in the name of Jesus;
‘Tis the sweetest name below
And in heaven we can know,
Nothing sweeter than the name of Jesus.

2 There is something in the name of Jesus
That brings music to believer’s ears;
Thro’ its pow’r the tempests cease their raging
And dispelled are all our anxious fears. [Refrain]

3 There is something in the name of Jesus
That sustains us in each trying hour;
Giving victory in ev’ry conflict
And endueing us with needed pow’r. [Refrain]

4 There is something in the name of Jesus
Far above all other names on earth,
We will laud it while on earth we linger
And in heaven we shall praise its worth. [Refrain]
