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.

So love this hymn. Grew up singing this in the Annex Baptist Church back home in The Bahamas. One of my favourites!! There is truly no name like The Name of JESUS! Hallelujah!

I woke up with this hymn in my head. I learned it at church growing up in Jamaica over 40 years ago. My mother used to sing this song at home a lot. The hymnal I use now does not have the hymn. I am really happy to find the lyrics and hear the piano music. Thank you so very much. I am very grateful that I could have all the lyrics because I did not remember it all.

God bless your ministry.

"I love the name of Him of Him whose heart knows all my griefs and bears a part who bids all anxious fears depart I love the name of Jesus"

Jesus! oh, how sweet the name,

Jesus! every day the same;

Jesus! let all saints proclaim

Its worthy praise forever.

The name of Jesus is so sweet. The more you use it in gaining His presence, the more sweeter it gets. You would think you might be able to wear it out, but it just gets stronger the more it is used to enter into our loving Savior. Sometimes I think I call too much on the name; but you cannot. Calling on the name brings me deeper and deeper and deeper into my alloted portion in Christ! That is: All the riches of God are being poured into me. HALLELUJAH!!!

Absolutely one of my very favorite hymns. I sing it every day, even have it on a CD I made.
