Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

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]
