1 There’s a name that makes my happiness complete,
That has saved my soul from many a defeat;
‘Tis a name that turns the bitter into sweet,
It is the name of Jesus.

His name is on my lips in early morning,
In a pray’r that He my daily walk will keep,
And when the shadows of the night
Hide the world far from my sight
Then I breathe the name of Jesus and comes sweet sleep.

2 There’s a name that turns my darkness into day,
That will bring to me an answer when I pray;
‘Tis a name that takes the sting of death away,
It is the name of Jesus. [Refrain]

3 There’s a name that gives me vict’ry over sin,
That has helped me many battles here to win;
And to sing its praises where shall I begin,
It is the name of Jesus. [Refrain]
