Jesus! Wonderful Name!

Oh, wonderful name, how my heart thrills to hear it—
The name of my risen Redeemer and King!
It falls like the music of Heav’n on my spirit,
And fills me with rapture divine while I sing.

Refrain:

Jesus! wonderful name!
Sweeter than all the world to me;
Jesus! ever the same—
Now and thro’ all eternity.

When lost in my sin, ’twas the name of my Savior
That banished my fear and brought peace to my soul;
I’ll sing it in glory forever and ever
With joy while the years of eternity roll.

Refrain

I think of the cross where He suffered to save me,
And oh, how my heart thrills with glory divine
To know it is life everlasting He gave me,
When, sinless, He died for a soul such as mine.

Refrain

By Avis B. Christensen 1918
