Jesus, sweetest Name of all,
My God and my Redeemer,
Before Your holy throne I fall
A poor, unworthy sinner.
Your Name speaks hope and life and peace
When stormy waves are rolling,
It makes my fears and doubting cease –
My thoughts and heart controlling.
One day Your Name will be confessed
By every tongue created,
Each knee will bow – your right professed
And never more debated.
This Name I love, so sweet and dear,
Is greater than all others,
And yet my Lord is ever near –
He’s closer than all brothers.
