Take the name of Jesus with you

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.
Take the name of Jesus ever,
As a shield from every snare.
If temptations round you gather,
Breathe that holy name in prayer.
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.
At the name of Jesus bowing,
Falling prostrate at His feet,
Claim His vict'ry over evil
And the enemy defeat.

I woke of this morning with this beautiful comforting song on my lips. I could only remember the 1st stanza well. Coming here really gave me the assurances of the victory one can have by taking the Name of Jesus along every second, minute and hour of each day.

God bless you for this online resource.

During my devotion this morning, this song was dropped into my heart, I checked for it in our church hymn book but not found, immediately I goggle for it and was very happy to find it on your website. I sang it and God blessed my heart. Keep on the job, God will bless your endeavours. We will be counted worthy to sing together at the Marriage of the Lamb of God. Revelation 19:5-9.

"Take the Name of Jesus with you", how true!!

I learnt this hymn as a child from the Church of Christ that met in my grand mum's home. Thanks be to God for the Name of Jesus. He is all I will ever need. Praise His Holy Name!

I came to Wolverhampton on a visit and during prayers with my beloved daughter, this song ministered to us on the limitless powers in the precious name of Jesus. Always take the name of Jesus with you and you will never regret.

At 80, I can't always remember the names of Hymns, but I thought of the words, "precious name" an am so thankful. Those words came in mediation. It is such a blessing to read the WORD and "sing" to myself.
