PLEASE NOTE - ONLY THE CHORUS IS IN OUR HYMNAL

          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 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!

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

          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!

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

          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!

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