There have been names that I have loved to hear, But never has there been a name so dear To this heart of mine, as the name divine, The precious, precious name of Jesus.Refrain: Jesus is the sweetest name I know, And He’s just the same as His lovely name, And that’s the reason why I love Him so; Oh, Jesus is the sweetest name I know.2. There is no name in earth or Heav’n above, That we should give such honor and such love As the blessed name, let us all acclaim, That wondrous, glorious name of Jesus.3. And someday I shall see Him face to face To thank and praise Him for His wondrous grace, Which He gave to me, when He made me free, The blessed Son of God called Jesus.
