Philippians 2:9
"Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him,
and given him a name which is above every name:"

          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.

            Chorus
            Precious name (Precious name), O how sweet! (O how sweet!)
            Hope of earth and joy of Heav'n;
            Precious name (Precious name), O how sweet! (O how sweet!)
            Hope of earth and joy of Heav'n.

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

            Chorus
            Precious name (Precious name), O how sweet! (O how sweet!)
            Hope of earth and joy of Heav'n;
            Precious name (Precious name), O how sweet! (O how sweet!)
            Hope of earth and joy of Heav'n.

          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!

            Chorus
            Precious name (Precious name), O how sweet! (O how sweet!)
            Hope of earth and joy of Heav'n;
            Precious name (Precious name), O how sweet! (O how sweet!)
            Hope of earth and joy of Heav'n.

          At the name of Jesus bowing,
          Falling prostrate at His feet,
          King of kings in Heav'n we'll crown Him,
          When our journey is complete.

            Chorus
            Precious name (Precious name), O how sweet! (O how sweet!)
            Hope of earth and joy of Heav'n;
            Precious name (Precious name), O how sweet! (O how sweet!)
            Hope of earth and joy of Heav'n.
