“O How I Love Jesus” is one of our most loved hymns.  We sing it often in worship and it is the theme song for our CMA Spring Semester.  Back in 1855 when the song was written, the refrain of the song did not appear with the verses because it had been written separately.  The refrain was so popular it started appearing in song books with popular hymns like “Amazing Grace” and “Alas and Did My Savior Bleed.”  These songs were sung to the tune of “There is a Name I Love to Hear” with the added refrain “O How I Love Jesus.” (try it)  Eventually the refrain was connected permanently to “There is a Name I Love to Hear” and we’ve been singing it that way ever since!
