1. 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! Oh, how sweet!
      Hope of earth and joy of heav’n;
      Precious name! Oh, how sweet!
        Hope of earth and joy of heav’n.
  2. Take the name of Jesus ever,
    As a shield from every snare.
    If temptations round you gather,
    Breathe that holy name in prayer.
  3. Oh, the precious name of Jesus,
    How it thrills our souls with joy;
    All the favor of the Father
    In this name we may enjoy.
  4. At the name of Jesus bowing,
    Falling prostrate at His feet,
    Claim His vict’ry over evil
    And the enemy defeat.
