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.
Harry Plantinga

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

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

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]
