277. The Sweetest Name

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

We love to sing of Christ our King,
And hail Him, blessed 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. (Chorus)

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

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