235. Take the Name of Jesus with You

1 Take the name of Jesus with you,
Child of sorrow and of woe;
It will; joy and comfort give you--
Take it, then, where'er you go.

Refrain
Precious name, O how sweet!
Hope of earth and joy of heav'n;
Precious name, O how sweet!
Hope of earth and joy of heav'n.

2 Take the name of Jesus ever,
As a shield from every snare;
If temptations round you gather,
Breathe that holy name in prayer. [Refrain]

3 O the precious name of Jesus!
How it thrills our souls with joy,
When His loving arms receive us
And His songs our tongues employ! [Refrain]

4 At the name of Jesus bowing,
Falling prostrate at His feet;
King of kings in heav'n we'll crown Him
When our journey is complete. [Refrain]
