287. Take the Name of Jesus With You

1 Take the name of Jesus with you,
Child of sorrow and of woe;
It will joy and comfort give you–
Take it, then, where'er you go.

Refrain:
Precious Name, O how sweet!
Hope of earth and joy of heaven;
Precious Name, O how sweet!
Hope of earth and joy of heaven.

2 Take the Name of Jesus ever,
As a shield from every snare;
If temptations round you gather,
Breathe that holy Name in prayer. [Refrain]

3 O the precious Name of Jesus!
How it thrills our souls with joy,
When His loving arms receive us,
And His songs our tongues employ! [Refrain]

4 At the Name of Jesus bowing,
Falling prostrate at His feet.
King of kings in heaven we'll crown Him,
When our journey is complete. [Refrain]
