1 Tis the sweetest name that the angels know,
’Tis the sweetest name here on earth below,
’Tis the sweetest name, and I love it so;
Tell it out to all the world that name is Jesus.

Refrain:
Jesus, Jesus, earth and heaven’s sweetest name,
Jesus, Jesus, here and there it means the same;
It will ever keep my soul,
While the endless ages roll;
Jesus, earth and heaven’s sweetest name.

2 ’Tis the sweetest name that all heaven sings,
And the dearest name that to mankind clings;
Oh, that sweetest name full salvation brings;
Tell it out to all the world that name is Jesus. [Refrain]

3 Oh, that sweetest name gives from sin release,
In the vale of sighs bids my sorrows cease;
’Tis the sweetest name, for it brings us peace;
Tell it out to all the world that name is Jesus. [Refrain]

4 ’Tis the sweetest name e’er employed in song,
And it thrills my heart as it makes me strong;
Oh, that sweetest name overcomes all wrong;
Tell it out to all the world that name is Jesus. [Refrain]
