O how nigh the Lord is unto all who call on Him

1
O how nigh the Lord is unto all who call on Him!
When we call, His very presence strengthens us within.
Seeking Jesus, He is found, and calling, He is near—
O what a comfort to our hearts to call His name so dear!
  Jesus! O what a name!
O Lord Jesus! Life-giving name!
Name victorious, name all-glorious,
  Name exalted—O what a name!
Jesus! Strengthening name!
O Lord Jesus! Comforting name!
Name to breathe in prayer, calling everywhere,
    “O Lord Jesus!” O what a name!
2
Call upon the name of Jesus, and you will be saved,
O Lord Jesus, hallelujah, nevermore enslaved!
We may take salvation’s cup by calling on the Lord;
Salvation from a host of things does His dear name afford.
3
To the Lord, the Jew, the Greek and everyone’s the same;
He is rich unto all men that call upon His name.
O Lord Jesus, what a joy to call and really live;
When breathing in Thy name, what pleasure Thou
  to us dost give.
4
In the God of our salvation we may take delight,
Calling on His name at all times, though in bliss or blight.
I will call upon His name as long as I shall live,
Because He has inclined His ear, and grace so full does give.
5
We will call upon the Lord, who’s worthy of our praise;
Thus our grateful hearts in worship we to Him may raise.
We are those who call upon His name in every place
With all the saints who from a pure heart call and taste His grace.
