3332. Jesus, I Love Thy Charming Name

1. Jesus, I love Thy charming name,
’Tis music to mine ear;
Fain would I sound it out so loud
That earth and Heaven should hear.

2. Yes, Thou art precious to my soul,
My transport and my trust;
Jewels to Thee are gaudy toys,
And gold is sordid dust.

3. All my capacious powers can wish
In Thee doth richly meet;
Not to mine eyes is light so dear,
Nor friendship half so sweet.

4. Thy grace still dwells upon my heart,
And sheds its fragrance there;
The noblest balm of all its wounds,
The cordial of its care.
