Hymn History:  Oh How I Love Jesus   

Frederick Whitfield was an Anglican clergyman who lived from 1829-1904. The hymn he wrote, "Oh, How I Love Jesus", became a favorite in the evangelistic crusades of Moody and Sankey. It originally had 8 stanzas but only 4 are found in most hymn books. It was first written in tract form in 1855. The entire hymn revolves around the name of Jesus. What a powerful name!


The name of Jesus promises us great things

from the Father.   It promises to be with us in

every circumstance.   How  we  should  love

Jesus for all the  great  things  He  has done

and is doing for us.

The Lyrics:  Oh How I Love Jesus


There is a name I love to hear, I love to sing its worth;
It sounds like music in mine ear, the sweetest name on earth.

It tells me of a Savior's love, who died to set me free;
It tells me of His precious blood, the sinner's perfect plea.

It tells me what my Father hath in store for eve'ry day,
And tho' I tread a darksome path, yields sunshine all the way.

It tells of One whose loving heart can feel my deepest woe,
Who in each sorrow bears a part, that none can bear below.

Oh, how I love Jesus, Oh how I love Jesus,
Oh, how I love Jesus, Because He first loved me!
