There is a Name I Love to Hear

I
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!

II
It tells me of a Savior’s love,
who died to set me free; 
it tells me of his precious blood, 
the sinner’s perfect plea.

O how I love Jesus, 
O how I love Jesus, 
O how I love Jesus, 
because he first loved me!

III
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!

IV
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!
