A Name I Highly Treasure

Good evening. I hope this post finds you happy in the Lord.  :D
                                                        
                                                        A Name I Highly Treasure


                           
                                          I’ve learned to know a Name I highly treasure,
                                          O how it thrills my spirit through and through!
                                        O precious Name, beyond degree or measure,
                                            My heart is stirred whenever I think of you!

My heart is stirred whenever I think of Jesus-
That blessed Name which sets the captives free.
The only Name through which I find salvation,
No name on earth has meant so much to me.
That Name brings gladness to a soul in sorrow,
It makes life’s shadows and its clouds depart.
Brings strength in weakness for today, tomorrow
That Name brings healing to an aching heart.
 
My heart is stirred whenever I think of Jesus-
That blessed Name which sets the captives free.
The only Name through which I find salvation,
No name on earth has meant so much to me.
That Name still lives and will live on forever,
While kings and kingdoms will forgotten be.
Through mist or rain, ’twill be beclouded never,
That Name shall shine, and shine eternally.
My heart is stirred whenever I think of Jesus-
That blessed Name which sets the captives free.
The only Name through which I find salvation,
No name on earth has meant so much to me.

Psalms 72:17-19
His name shall endure for ever: his name shall be continued as long as the sun: and men shall be blessed in him: all nations shall call him blessed. Blessed be the Lord God, the God of Israel, who only doeth wondrous things. And blessed be his glorious name for ever: and let the whole earth be filled with his glory; Amen, and Amen.

In the sweet joy of the Saviour,
~Ashley

  3. Ashley that is SO beautiful! I'm guessing this is an old poem -- the older ones seem to be so rich in their words and thoughts. Not that I don't love newer things as well but this is indeed beautiful. Thanks for sharing in this post! Following you!
