Verse 1
The name of Jesus is so sweet,
I love its music to repeat;
It makes my joys full and complete,
The precious name of Jesus!

Chorus
Jesus! O how sweet the name!
Jesus! every day the same.
Jesus! let all saints proclaim
Its worthy praise for ever.

Verse 2
I love the name of him whose heart
Knows all my griefs and bears my part,
Who bids all anxious fears depart;
I love the name of Jesus.

Verse 3
That name I fondly love to hear,
It never fails my heart to cheer,
Its music dries the falling tear;
Exalt the name of Jesus!

Verse 4
No word of man can ever tell
How sweet the name I love so well;
O let its praises ever swell!
O praise the name of Jesus!
