My Lord, I love His name

Jesus, my Lord, I love His name,
Oh! how it makes my heart rejoice!
He died to rescue me from shame.
Now in his praise I lift my voice.

Renewed by grace from day to day,
I now by faith the cross sustain;
Lord, guide me in the narrow way
Each hour I live till heaven I gain.

Dwell with me while I sojourn here,
And lead me by Thy love divine
In all Thy ways to me so dear.
Yea, let Thy Spirit in me shine.

Arranged from "Acrostic" by John Riley Daily, in The Pilgrimage of a Stranger: Being an Account of Fifty-one years of the Journey of a Poor Sinner, 1905
