Jesus, the very thought of you,
dispels the darkness in our hearts,
yet sweeter still, your face to see,
and in your holy presence be.
2. No voice can sing, no heart can frame,
nor can the human mind define,
a sweeter sound than Jesus' name,
the savior of all humankind.
3. For those once lost but now are found,
our Saviorâ€™s name a guiding sound,
calls seekers and the fallen home,
the journey's end, a golden tone.
4. O loving Jesus, you, our God,
tis you we seek through all our days,
and in your grace newborn we sing
new songs of gratitude and praise.
