97. There Is No Name So Sweet on Earth

1 There is no name so sweet on earth,
No name so sweet in heaven,
The name, before His wondrous birth
To Christ the Savior given.

Refrain:
We love to sing of Christ our King,
And hail Him, blessèd Jesus;
For there’s no word ear ever heard
So dear, so sweet as “Jesus.”

2 And when He hung upon the tree,
They wrote this name above Him;
That all might see the reason we
Forevermore must love Him. (Refrain)

3 So now, upon His Father’s throne,
Almighty to release us
From sin and pain, He gladly reigns,
The Prince and Savior, Jesus. (Refrain)

4 O Jesus, by that matchless name,
Thy grace shall fail us never;
Today as yesterday the same,
Thou art the same forever. (Refrain)
