GEC English Hymn

English Hymn 15

STANZA 1
There is a Name I love to hear, I love to sing its worth;
It sounds like music in my 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!

STANZA 2
It tells me of a Saviour’s love,
Who died to set me free;
It tells me of His precious blood,
The sinner’s perfect plea.

STANZA 3
It tells me of a Father’s smile
Beaming upon His child;
It cheers me through this little while, Through desert, waste, and wild.

STANZA 4
It tells me what my Father hath
In store for every day,
And though I tread a darksome path, Yields sunshine all the way.

STANZA 5
It tells of One whose loving heart
Can feel my deepest woe; Who in each sorrow bears
A part that none can bear below.

STANZA 6
It bids my trembling heart rejoice. It dries each rising tear.
It tells me, in a “still small voice,” To trust and never fear.

STANZA 7
Jesus, the Name I love so well, The Name I love to hear:
No saint on earth its worth can tell, No heart conceive how dear.

STANZA 8
This Name shall shed its fragrance still
Along this thorny road,
Shall sweetly smooth the rugged hill
That leads me up to God.

STANZA 9
And there with all the blood-bought throng,
From sin and sorrow free,
I’ll sing the new eternal song
Of Jesus’ love for me.
