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'm always blessed when singing this hymn. Since my childhood in the Apostolic Church Cameroon at the Obili assembly we have been singing this hymn with a martial beat.

Woke up around 2am and just wondering about the insecurities in my country and just wondering what prayer I can do, and immediately the name Jesus came to my mind, and I remembered how just at the mention of the name I was saved from dieing several years ago, and I started singing the hymn and had to look for the lyrics and I got here. The name Jesus is so powerful.


This is one of the popular hymns from S. S., I love during our days in school on the assembly ground
