How we love the glorious name

1
How we love the glorious name,
  The name of Jesus!
’Tis the name above all names—
  On earth or in heav’n.
As we breathe this precious name,
  Darkness and death cannot remain;
For we call and get the Person of that name!
2
Dear Lord Jesus, with our tongues—
  We gladly confess Thy name,
To the glory of the Father God above.
  For to us to speak Thy praise,
Is the enjoyment of our days;
  Calling JESUS is to call the One we love!

When we call on the Lord's name, we are not calling to get a someTHING, but to get a someONE. Oh Lord Jesus! I want to breathe, call, and get a living Person!

Sister Deb, the chorus you posted (to my understanding) was originally written as a different hymn and the two were fused together at some point. I grew up singing the song this way myself in Texas. The only publication I ever saw the two printed together in was the old YP songbook, the "gray book". Since the gray book is no longer used, I have noticed that saints tend to drop the chorus when singing this hymn.
