Verse 1
Take the name of Jesus with you,
Child of sorrow and of woe;
It will joy and comfort give you,
Take it then where'er you go.

Precious name, O how sweet!
Hope of earth and joy of Heaven.

Verse 2
Take the name of Jesus ever
As a shield from every snare;
If temptations round you gather,
Breathe that holy name in prayer.

Verse 3
O the precious name of Jesus,
How it thrills our souls with joy,
When his loving arms receive us,
And his songs our tongues employ!

Verse 4
At the name of Jesus bowing,
Falling prostrate at his feet,
King of kings in Heaven we'll crown him,
When our journey is complete.
