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.Refrain: O how I love Jesus, O how I love Jesus, O how I love Jesus, Because He first loved me!2. 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.3. It tells of One whose loving heart Can feel my deepest woe; Who in each sorrow bears a part That none can bear below.
