184. There Is a Name We Love to Hear

by F. Whitfield
There is a name we love to hear,
We love to sing its worth;
It sounds like music in our ear,
The sweetest name on earth.
Isaiah 9:6; Matthew 1:21,23; Ephesians 1:21; Psalm 148:13; Psalm 103:1; Psalm 135:3; Philippians 2:9
It tells us of a Saviour's love,
Who died to set us free;
It tells us of His precious blood,
The sinner's perfect plea.
Acts 4:10-12; 1 Peter 1:18-19
Jesus! the name we love so well,
The name we love to hear!
No saint on earth its worth can tell,
No heart conceive how dear.
Isaiah 26:8; Psalm 5:11; Psalm 8:1; Psalm 54:6
This name shall shed its fragrance still
Along this thorny road,
Shall sweetly smooth the rugged hill
That leads us up to God.
Song of Solomon 1:3
And there the whole triumphant throng,
Of blood-bought saints on high,
Shall sing the new, eternal song
With Jesus ever nigh.
Revelation 5:9-13; Revelation 5:6
