1 We sing His precious name,
Who our Redeemer came;
Our songs of love we lift above,
With hearts aflame;
Himself for us He gave,
And died our souls to save.

Joy, joy, in His precious name,
Sing, sing, praise to our Saviour;
Bless Him, boundless love proclaim;
Happy in His gracious favor;
Come, come, sing of Jesus still;
Sing, sing, praise to our Saviour;
Learn, learn, now to do His will;
Sing, O sing His precious name.

2 We sing His life on earth,
His lowly manger birth;
His wondrous deeds, relieving needs;
His matchless worth;
We sing redeeming grace,
And early seek His face. [Refrain]

3 We sing the Crucified;
Bright gates He opened wide!
O boundless Love, enthroned above,
With us abide!
And while Thy name we sing,
Be near us, heav’nly King. [Refrain]
