Prophecy fulfilled

Jesus Is The Sweetest Name I Know
Words & Music: Lela B. Long, 20th Century
There have been names that I have loved to hear,
But never has there been a name so dear
To this heart of mine,
as the Name divine,
The precious, precious Name of Jesus.
Jesus is the sweetest name I know,
And He’s just the same as His lovely Name,
And that’s the reason why I love Him so;
Oh, Jesus is the sweetest name I know.
There is no name in earth or Heav’n above,
That we should give such honor and such loveAs the blessèd Name,
let us all acclaim,
That wondrous, glorious Name of Jesus.
Jesus is the sweetest name I know,
And He’s just the same as His lovely Name,
And that’s the reason why I love Him so;
Oh, Jesus is the sweetest name I know.
And some day I shall see Him face to face
To thank and praise Him for His wondrous grace,
Which He gave to me,
when He made me free,
The blessèd Son of God called Jesus.
Jesus is the sweetest name I know,
And He’s just the same as His lovely Name,
And that’s the reason why I love Him so;
Oh, Jesus is the sweetest name I know.
Merry Christmas from our home to yours...
JESUS is the REASON
we CHOOSE
to Celebrate the Season

There's an unusual story connected with the birth of this song. I invite you to check it out on my daily blog on hymn history, Wordwise Hymns, for today.
