Precious Name, Oh How Sweet

chasinblog2.jpgFebruary 19, 2017 (Sunday)

Yesterday's hymn, He Is So Precious to Me, was one of many hymns that refer to Jesus and His name as, "Precious." Lydia Baxter's familiar hymn, "Take the Name of Jesus With You," also uses that word in the chorus: "Precious name, oh how sweet.." Her hymn is a great example of a song that exalts the name of our Savior.


TAKE THE NAME OF JESUS WITH YOU
Lydia Baxter
1870

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

Verses:

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.

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

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.

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.
