Wonderful Name

There's a wonderful name, it is dearer to me

Author: Lida M. Keck
Tune: [There's a wonderful name, it is dearer to me]
Published in 7 hymnals

Representative Text

1 There's a wonderful name, it is dearer to me
And grander than titles of men;
'Tis Jesus, the sweetest, most beautiful name,
That ever was written by pen.

Jesus, wonderful name,
Jesus, the Savior of men;
The tidings proclaim,
A ransom He came,
Jesus, the Savior,
Wonderful, wonderful name.

2 There's a magical balm in that wonderful name,
That baffles men's cunning and art;
It brings a sweet calm to the tempest-toss'd soul,
And fills with contentment the heart. [Chorus]

3 There's a message for you in that wonderful name,
A pardon, if pardon you crave;
There's no other way, and there's no other name,
But Jesus, the mighty to save. [Chorus]
