The Name of Jesus (Hymn)

The Name of Jesus
William C. Martin (1902)

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!

Refrain
“Jesus,” O how sweet the name!
“Jesus,” every day the same;
“Jesus,” let all saints proclaim
Its worthy praise forever!

I love the name of Him Whose heart
Knows all my griefs and bears a part;
Who bids all anxious fears depart,
I love the name of Jesus!

Refrain

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!

Refrain

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!

Refrain

I have to confess that I really don’t even know the tune for this hymn.  I was actually looking for another hymn by a similar name and came across this one.  I thought I would go ahead and post it because of the great words.  Any song that exalts the name of Jesus like this one does is a good song.  “The name of Jesus is so sweet, I love its music to repeat…”  Amen to that!  Now I just have to find the tune so I can sing it…
