~Take the Name of Jesus With You

 

         Mrs. Lydia Baxter, despite her radiant personality and cheerful disposition, had long been an invalid and periodically was confined to her bed for days at a time.

       “How do you do it?”  others would ask, as they marveled at the way she triumphed over pain and confinement.

       “I have some very special armour,” she would reply.

       “A secret weapon?” her friends would jokingly ask.

       “Oh, no,” she would say.  “You see, I have the name of Jesus, and I use that name as my special protection.  When the tempter tried to make me blue or despondent, I mention the name of jesus, and he can’t get through to tempt me any more

       Out of her own experience as well as her study of the Bible, Lydia Baxter, in 1870, her sixty-first year, wrote a poem which William H. Doane has set to music, giving the Christian world its finest gospel song on “The Name of Jesus”.

Take the Name of Jesus with You[1]

1           Take the name of Jesus with you,

Child of sorrow and of woe;

It will joy and comfort give you,

Take it then, where’er you go.

Chorus  Precious name, O how sweet!

Hope of earth and joy of heav’n;

Precious name, O how sweet!

Hope of earth and joy of heav’n.

2           Take the name of Jesus ever

As a shield from ev’ry snare;

If temptations round you gather,

Breathe that holy name in prayer.

3           O the precious name of Jesus!

How it thrills our souls with joy.

When His loving arms receive us,

And His songs our tongues employ!
