165. How Sweet the Name of Jesus Sounds

  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.

  2. It makes the wounded spirit whole,

    And calms the troubled breast;

    'Tis manna to the hungry soul,

    And to the weary, rest.

  3. Dear name, the Rock on which we build;

    Our Shield and Hiding-place;

    Our never failing treasury filled

    With boundless stores of grace!

  4. Jesus, our Saviour, Shepherd, Friend,

    Prophet, and Priest, and King;

    Our Lord, our Life, our Way, our End.

    Accept the praise we bring.

  5. Weak is the effort of our heart,

    And cold our warmest thought;

    But when we see Thee as Thou art,

    We'll praise Thee as we ought.

  6. Till then we would Thy love proclaim

    With every fleeting breath;

    And triumph in that blessed Name,

    Which quells the power of death.

Something wrong? Let me know.
