625. Precious Name

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 heaven.
Precious name, O how sweet!
Hope of earth and joy of heaven.

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 heaven we'll crown him,
when our journey is complete. [Refrain]
