Hymn/Song Information

There is a Name I love to hear




There is a Name I love to hear,
I love to sing its worth;
It sounds like music in my ear,
The sweetest Name on earth.

O how I love Jesus,
O how I love Jesus,
O how I love Jesus,
Because He first loved me!



It tells me of a Saviorís love,
Who died to set me free;
It tells me of His precious blood,
The sinnerís perfect plea.

O how I love Jesus,
O how I love Jesus,
O how I love Jesus,
Because He first loved me!



It tells me of a Fatherís smile
Beaming upon His child;
It cheers me through this little while,
Through desert, waste, and wild.

O how I love Jesus,
O how I love Jesus,
O how I love Jesus,
Because He first loved me!



It tells me what my Father hath
In store for every day,
And though I tread a darksome path,
Yields sunshine all the way.

O how I love Jesus,
O how I love Jesus,
O how I love Jesus,
Because He first loved me!



It tells of One whose loving heart
Can feel my deepest woe;
Who in each sorrow bears
A part that none can bear below.

O how I love Jesus,
O how I love Jesus,
O how I love Jesus,
Because He first loved me!



It bids my trembling heart rejoice.
It dries each rising tear.
It tells me, in a ďstill small voice,Ē
To trust and never fear.

O how I love Jesus,
O how I love Jesus,
O how I love Jesus,
Because He first loved me!



Jesus, the Name I love so well,
The Name I love to hear:
No saint on earth its worth can tell,
No heart conceive how dear.

O how I love Jesus,
O how I love Jesus,
O how I love Jesus,
Because He first loved me!



This Name shall shed
its fragrance still
Along this thorny road,
Shall sweetly smooth the rugged hill
That leads me up to God.

O how I love Jesus,
O how I love Jesus,
O how I love Jesus,
Because He first loved me!



And there with all
the blood-bought throng,
From sin and sorrow free,
Iíll sing the new eternal song
Of Jesusí love for me.

O how I love Jesus,
O how I love Jesus,
O how I love Jesus,
Because He first loved me!
