Verse 1
There is a name I love to hear,
I love to sing its worth;
It sounds like music in mine ear,
The sweetest name on earth.

Verse 2
It tells me of the Lamb of God
Who died to set me free;
It tells me of His precious blood,
The sinner's perfect plea.

Verse 3
It tells me of a Father's smile
Beaming upon His child;
It cheers me through this little while,
Through desert, waste, and wild.

Verse 4
Jesus, the name I love so well,
The name I love to hear;
No saint on earth its worth can tell,
No heart conceive how dear.

Verse 5
This name shall shed its fragrance still
Along this thorny road,
Shall sweetly smooth the rugged hill,
That leads me up to God.

Verse 6
And there with all the blood-bought throng
From sin and sorrow free,
I'll sing the new eternal song
Of Jesus' love to me.
