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

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

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

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!

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

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.

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