Verse 1
There is beauty in the name of Jesus,
Passing time can ne'er extol;
All the splendor of its clear unfolding
Will eternal years enrol.

Chorus
In my heart there dwells a song of purest beauty,
Blissful as an echo of the angel-choir must be;
Jesus is the wondrous theme its notes are weaving.
Dearest name of names to me.

Verse 2
There's salvation in the name of Jesus;
Trusting in his name alone
We shall find ourselves at last presented
Faultless at his Father's throne.

Verse 3
There is comfort in the name of Jesus;
Comrade, faint amid the strife,
E'en as dew upon the spirit falling,
Jesus is the word of life.

Verse 4
There is rapture in the name of Jesus,
Joy that bears the soul above,
All the wealth of Heaven to earth restoring,
Name of all-redeeming love.
