There is no name so sweet on earth,
No name so sweet in heaven
The name, before His wondrous birth,
To Christ the Saviour given.
We love to sing of Christ our King,
And hail Him blessed Jesus!
For there’s no word ear ever heard
So dear, so sweet, as “Jesus!”
And when He hung upon the tree,
They wrote this name above Him
That all might see the reason we
For evermore must love Him.
So now, upon His Father’s throne–
Almighty to release us
From sin and pain–He ever reigns,
The Prince and Saviour, Jesus.
O Jesus! by that matchless Name
Thy grace shall fail us never
To-day as yesterday the same,
Thou art the same for ever!
