Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
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]
