Representative Text

1 I know of a Name,
A beautiful Name,
That angels brought down to earth;
They whispered it low,
One night long ago,
To a maiden of lowly birth.

That beautiful Name, that beautiful Name,
From sin has power to free us!
That beautiful Name, that wonderful Name,
That matchless Name is Jesus!

2 I know of a Name,
A beautiful Name,
That unto a Babe was given;
The stars glittered bright
Throughout that glad night,
And angels praised God in heaven. (Refrain)

3 The One of that Name,
My Saviour became,
My Saviour of Calvary:
My sins nailed Him there,
My burdens He bare,
He suffered all this for me. (Refrain)

4 I love that blest Name,
That wonderful Name,
Made higher than all in heaven;
’Twas whispered, I know,
In my heart long ago--
To Jesus my life I’ve given. (Refrain)
