Praise the Name of Jesus

Representative Text

1 Praise the name of Jesus, for His love to me,
Crucified on Calv’ry sinful man to free.
Is He dead or living?—from the grave He rose,
Crowned a mighty victor over all His foes.

Praise the Lord for grace and glory,
Praise Him for His mercy, praise Him evermore.

2 Praise Him for His mercy, for the life He gives;
Praise Him for the vict’ry—in my heart He lives.
He is with me ever in the trying hour,
Causing me to conquer by His mighty pow’r. [Refrain]

3 When my heart is heavy, Jesus makes it light;
When my steps are weary, He is my delight.
With His grace upholding, should I fear at all?
With His arms enfolding I shall never fall. [Refrain]
