A name so sweet


There is a name, that is so sweet,
i love to hear it everyday
it's a name, oh, so complete

His name is Jesus, whom i love
he's as beautiful,
as a dove

I want to follow him, all the way
in the church, where he put me,
that is where, I should stay.

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
