There is a name I love to hear,
I love to sing its worth;
It sounds like music to my ear,
The sweetest name on earth.
Oh, how I love Jesus,
Because He first loved me.
It tells me of my 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 ev’ry day,
And tho I tread a darksome path,
Yields sunshine all the way.
It tells me one whose loving heart
Can feel my deepest woe;
Who in each sorrow bears a part,
That none can bear below.
