O How I Love Jesus Lyrics

Oh, How I Love Jesus

We don’t give much thought to what a simple name might convey to us. For example, Jesus: “. you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins” (Matthew 1:21 ESV); “Jesus” is derived from the Hebrew for “The Lord Saves.” There is also the literal meaning of the word, which is often in another language. There are several examples of this in the Bible, such as: Another definition of a name is the things that are psychologically associated with the name in some way or another.

Text:

Frederick Whitfield, an English priest, wrote the first stanzas of this hymn in 1855, and the rest is history. Whitfield’s Sacred Poems and Prosein London, published in 1861, was the first publication of the work, which was first written in hymn sheets and booklets. It was initially published in the United States in 1864, making it the earliest known edition. Despite the fact that the refrain is anonymous, it was used in conjunction with many other hymns written by John Newton and Isaac Watts in the second half of the nineteenth century, including “Amazing Grace” and “Alas!

Only four of Whitfield’s nine original stanzas are still in frequent usage today; they are the first, second, fourth, and fifth stanzas, respectively.

It is the topic of the stanzas that the numerous pleasant connotations and promises that the name of Jesus holds for a devoted Christian believer are the focus of the poem.

Tune:

The origins of the song O HOW I LOVE JESUS may be traced back to the camp meetings of nineteenth-century America. It’s possible that the melodies for the stanzas and the refrain were composed separately. Despite the fact that they blend nicely together, the stanza music starts with an upbeat and has a constant long-short rhythm, whilst the refrain tune accentuates the primary beats of each measure. All of the songs have a lovely, almost dance-like air to them, and they are all simple to sing.

When/Why/How:

This hymn is appropriate for use as a devotional song at any time of the year and is suitable for all ages. Two Scripture passages that might be used in conjunction with the song are I John 4:19, which is quoted in the refrain, and Hebrews 4:15-16, which is hinted to in the last stanza. In addition, there is the general topic of Jesus’ love, which may be used in a medley with other hymns on the same theme, as in the long choral medley “More Love to Thee,” or the piano medley in “Prayludes for Summer.” Tiffany Shomsky, Hymnary.org Tiffany Shomsky, Hymnary.org FlexScores are available for download in the Mediasection on the right.

  1. There is a Name I enjoy hearing, and I enjoy singing about its importance
  2. It’s like music to my ears, the finest name on the face of the planet
  • Oh, how I love Jesus, Oh, how I love Jesus, Oh, how I love Jesus, Oh, how I love Jesus, Because He first loved me
  • Reprise
  1. It reminds me of the love of a Savior who died in order to set me free
  2. It reminds me of His precious blood, which serves as the sinner’s perfect appeal
  3. And A grin of a Father beaming upon His child comes to mind when I hear this song. It keeps me going throughout this brief period of time, through desert, waste, and wilderness. It informs me of the plans my Father has for me on a daily basis. And, despite the fact that I am walking down a gloomy route, the trail is filled with brightness the entire way
  4. A caring heart that can sense my deepest sorrow is depicted in the story. Each grief has a bearer, who carries a part that no one else can endure
  5. It makes my trembling heart sing with joy
  6. It dries each new tear that forms. It speaks to me in a “still quiet voice,” telling me to trust and never be afraid
  7. Jesus, whose name I adore and whose name I adore to hear: “Jesus, you are my everything.” No saint on earth can express how valuable it is, and no heart can comprehend how precious it is
  8. This is a name that will continue to exude its aroma. Along this treacherous path, Shall pleasantly soften the rocky incline that takes me to God’s presence
  9. It will be in that place, with all the blood-bought throng, free from sin and sorrow, that I will sing the new eternal song of Jesus’ love for me

What a wonderful reason to love Jesus: He first loved me! In the majority of our publications, only stanzas 1, 2, and 4 are included; a handful include stanza 3. Other stanzas that are nearly typically removed include: Beaming upon His child;It comforts me through this brief period of time, through desert, waste, and wilderness.

Now that I’ve been set free from sin and grief, I’ll sing a fresh and eternal song of Jesus’ love for me.
