There is a name I love to hear

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.
  Oh, how I love Jesus,
Oh, how I love Jesus,
Oh, how I love Jesus,
  Because He first loved me!
It tells me of a Savior's love,
  Who died to set me free;
It tells me of His precious blood,
  The sinner's perfect plea.
It tells me what my Father hath,
  In store for every day,
And though I tread a darksome path,
  Yields sunshine all the way.
It tells of One whose loving heart
  Can feel my deepest woe,
Who in each sorrow bears a part
  That none can bear below.

Ooh Praise the Lord Jesus for this wonderful song. It reminds me of the days, in the 80's, when my late mum will lead in their local church back in Western Kenya. Surely, I love to hear the name of JESUS because He died for me. Let us desire to hear this name. It is a strong tower under which the righteous run unto it and they are safe.

A good hymn. Love it .....written by Frederic Whitefield. 1 John 4: 19 We love Him because He first loved us. John 14:21 He that Hath my commandments; and keepeth them, he is that loveth me.......and a nugget to live by 2 John 1:6 And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it.
