JESUS is
    The Sweetest Name I Know
    Words and music by Lela B. Long

    1 Corinthians 6:11

    "... but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified
    in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God."


There have been names that I have loved to hear,
But never has there been a name so dear
To this heart of mine, as the Name divine,
The precious, precious Name of Jesus.

    Refrain
    Jesus is the sweetest name I know,
    And Heís just the same as His lovely Name,
    And thatís the reason why I love Him so;
    Oh, Jesus is the sweetest name I know.

There is no name in earth or heavín above,
That we should give such honor and such love
As the blessed Name, let us all acclaim,
That wondrous, glorious Name of Jesus.

    Refrain
    Jesus is the sweetest name I know,
    And Heís just the same as His lovely Name,
    And thatís the reason why I love Him so;
    Oh, Jesus is the sweetest name I know.

And some day I shall see Him face to face
To thank and praise Him for His wondrous grace,
Which He gave to me, when He made me free,
The blessed Son of God called Jesus.

    Refrain
    Jesus is the sweetest name I know,
    And Heís just the same as His lovely Name,
    And thatís the reason why I love Him so;
    Oh, Jesus is the sweetest name I know.
