Lyrics:A. Paget Wilkes

This hymn has a unique tune.


Jesus, Jesus, Jesus!

Sweetest Name on earth,

How can I, a sinner,

Come to know its worth?


Oh! the sinful sorrow,

Oh! the strangest shame,

That I saw no beauty

In that sacred Name.


Never felt the sweetness!

Never knew the grace,

Never saw the love-pain

In that wounded face!


Never found the mystery

In that simple word —

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus,

Savior, Lover, Lord.


Now 'tis past and over.

Gone my guilt and shame;

Jesus, Jesus did it,

Glory to His Name!


Wonderful compassion,

Reaching even me;

Bows my humbled spirit

In captivity.


Jesus! Jesus! Jesus!

Loved me in my shame.

Oh! the joy and rapture

Of that sacred Name.
