How sweet the name of Jesus sounds

VERSE 1
How sweet the name of
Jesus sounds
In a believer’s ear
It soothes his sorrows, heals
his wounds
And drives away his fear

VERSE 2
It makes the wounded spirit
whole,
And calms the troubled breast;
‘Tis manna’ to the hungry soul
And to the weary rest.

VERSE 3
Dear name, the Rock on
which I build
My shield and hiding place
My never-failing treasury filled
With boundless stores of
grace.

VERSE 4
Jesus, my Shepherd,
Brother, Friend
My Prophet, Priest and King
My Lord, my Life, my Way
my End
Accept the praise I bring.

VERSE 5
Weak is the effort of my
heart,
And cold my warmest thought;
But when I see Thee as Thou
art
I’ll praise Thee as I ought.

VERSE 6
I would Thy boundless
love proclaim
With every fleeting breath;
And may the music of Thy name
Refresh my soul in death.
Amen
