The name of Jesus is so sweet

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.
  Jesus! oh, 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.
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.
No word of man can ever tell
How sweet the name I love so well,
Oh, let its praises ever swell,
  Oh, praise the name of Jesus.

I first heard this beautiful simple song 65 years ago as a young Christian. It meant so much to me at the time! Some of it has stayed with me over the years. AND THE NAME OF JESUS IS STILL VERY SWEET! Am preaching on “There is no other name given under heaven among men, whereby we must be saved. ” Acts 4:12.

I've always loved singing this song. The name of Jesus is so powerful! There are days when I am so down in my spirit and when I say the name of Jesus I get this comfort I cannot explain. I am so glad for the gift of salvation and blessed that I can call upon the name of my friend and saviour, Jesus Christ.

This song has been a source of blessing to my soul throughout my Christian walk. The name of JESUS is my life source. It commands demonsto flee, it brings Redemption to lost souls, it heals diseases, give life to the dead, make the lame to walk. I could go on telling what the name of Jesus means to me, but it would take a lifetime. Thank you for sharing this song. I am forever grateful. 🙏🙏🙏💖💖

I used to hate saying the name of Jesus. It was like an irritation in my mouth. BUT, one day Jesus came into my life. His sweetness and love for me was like no other. Jesus, Jesus, Jesus the sweetest name I know.
