184. There Is a Name We Love to Hear

C.M.
by F. Whitfield
1
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
2
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
3
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
4
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
5
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
