The Sweetest Name

Verse 1:
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.

Refrain:
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!”

Verse 2:
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.

Verse 3:
So now, upon His Father’s throne–
Almighty to release us
From sin and pain–He ever reigns,
The Prince and Saviour, Jesus.

Verse 4:
O Jesus! by that matchless Name
Thy grace shall fail us never
To-day as yesterday the same,
Thou art the same for ever!

Geo.W. Bethune/Wm.B. Bradbury
