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.

Chorus:
Precious name, oh how sweet!
Hope of earth and joy of heav'n;
Precious name, oh how sweet!
Hope of earth and joy of heav'n;

2 Take the name of Jesus ever
As a shield from ev'ry snare;
When temptations round you gather,
Breathe that holy name in prayer.

[Chorus]

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

[Chorus]

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.

[Chorus]
