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!

  1. It tells me of a Savior’s love,
    Who died to set me free;
    It tells me of His precious blood,
    The sinner’s perfect plea.
  2. It tells me of a Father’s smile
    Beaming upon His child;
    It cheers me through this little while,
    Through desert, waste, and wild.
  3. It tells me what my Father hath
    In store for every day,
    And though I tread a darksome path,
    Yields sunshine all the way.
  4. It tells of One whose loving heart
    Can feel my deepest woe;
    Who in each sorrow bears
    A part that none can bear below.
  5. It bids my trembling heart rejoice.
    It dries each rising tear.
    It tells me, in a “still small voice,”
    To trust and never fear.
