    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.
