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.

I like the "plonky" approach, it makes it a lot easier to sing along when one isn't so sure about the tune.



Perhaps you could re-record with a more upbeat rendering like "I'm walking down the road"? Evelyn, please check out that piano part, really excellent.

I love the hymn but am sad the playing is so "plonky" rather than with beautiful chords and smooth in the style of Ted Smith of the Billy Graham Crusades. Many of the lovely older hymns on You tube tend to be plonky and make them sound childish.

Thank You Jesus for the finished work at Calvary.

I love this song so much. It reminds me of the love of the Lord for me and that He died to set me free. I love You Lord!!!

Hallelujah! Yeah, I love Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God for having rescued me from the most dangerous and dark pit of sin where Satan, the devil, old serpent and who is also the dragon had chained me. My loving Christ and Saviour came to my rescue by atoning me with His own precious and priceless blood at the place called of the skull (Golgotha) where He redeemed me and broke all the shackles that had bound me, and He exclaimed, "Peter G. Mugoiyo, my friend, and to all the souls in the whole-wide world: IT IS FINISHED!" Glory to the Almighty Elohim, our most loving Father, and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ now and forever. Indeed, Jesus is the sinner’s perfect plea. Hallelujah!


Jesus l love You, l can listen to this song over and over again.
