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.

"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!

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.

As I was having a time with God in days of personal prayer, and I was full of questions, asking, Where is that power that gave sight to Bartimeuas, the man that was born blind? Where is that power that restored to life the only son of the widow of Nain? Where is that power that the woman of issue of blood touched and declared "I am whole"? Where is that power that said to a woman with hunchback "woman thou art loosed"? Where is that power that silenced the storms, and the wind obeyed His voice? Where is the p...

Then I heard the voice of God said to me "THE POWER IS RAPPED IN THE NAME OF JESUS, TAKE IT TO WHEREVER YOU GO AND WHATEVER YOU DO, AND YOU SHALL SEE THAT POWER YOU ARE ASKING FOR" The he took me to this hymn, and I will never stop taking this name everywhere I go.
