(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)
I know of a Name, a beautiful Name
That angel brought don 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 pow’r to free us!
That beautiful Name, That wonderful Name,
That matchless Name is Jesus!
I know of a Name, A beautiful Name,
That unto a Babe was giv’n;
The stars glittered bright Thruout that glad night,
And angel praised God in heav’n.
The One of that Name My Savior became,
My Savior of Calvary;
My sins nailed Him there, My Burdens He bare,
He suffered all his for me.
I love that blest Name, That wonderful Name,
Made higher than all in heav’n;
‘Twas whispered, I know, In my heart long ago —
To Jesus my life I’ve giv’n.
