Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

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]
