With Full Respect to Author William C. Martin who pastored First Baptist Church in Ft. Myers, Florida
1 The name of Jesus is so sweet,
I love its music to repeat;
It makes my joys full and complete,
The precious name of Jesus!
“Jesus,” O how sweet the name!
“Jesus,” ev’ry day the same;
“Jesus,” let all saints proclaim
Its worthy praise forever.
2 I love the name of Him whose heart
Knows all my griefs, and bears a part;
Who bids all anxious fears depart –
I love the name of Jesus. [Refrain]
3 That name I fondly love to hear,
It never fails my heart to cheer;
Its music dries the falling tear;
Exalt the name of Jesus. [Refrain]
4 No word of man can ever tell
How sweet the name I love so well;
Oh, let its praises ever swell,
Oh, praise the name of Jesus. [Refrain]
