376: PRECIOUS Name! the name of Jesus

by E. E. Nichols

sung to Come Thou Weary midi score
by Ira D. Sankey (1840-1908)

1 PRECIOUS Name! the name of Jesus,
Son of God most high,
Who in love to guilty sinners,
Came to die.

2 Precious Name! the story telling
Of His humble birth;
Of His lonely pathway, trodden
Here on earth.

3 Precious Name of Him the Saviour,
Come the lost to save;
In His grace, for ruined sinners
All He gave.

4 Precious Name of Him who suffered
On the shameful tree,
Gave Himself, the willing victim,
Spotless He.

5 Precious Name! enthroned in heaven,
Still that name He bears;
On His brow the crown of glory
Now He wears.

6 Precious, peerless Name of Jesus,
None can tell its worth;
Sweetest Name there is in heaven,
Or on earth.
