‘Take the Name of Jesus With You’

I never heard this hymn before this morning, but it’s sweet: Take the Name of Jesus With You, lyrics by Lydia Baxter in 1870. Sung by the Table Singers. Does that make it old? “The old that is strong doth not wither: deep roots are not touched by the Frost” –J.R.R. Tolkien

I love these 19th century hymns. And yes, there are hymns and worship songs being written today that people are going to love 200 years from now. But just for the time being, this one will suffice.
