HOW SWEET THE NAME OF JESUS SOUNDS IN A BELIEVER'S EAR!

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 I the Rock on which I build, 

My shield, and hiding-place, 

My never-failing treasury, filled 

With boundless stores of grace!


4.Jesus, my Shepherd,Brother,

Friend, My Prophet, Priest, and King, 

My Lord, my Life, my Way, my End, 

Accept the praise I bring.


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.


6.Till then I would Thy love proclaim

With every fleeting breath; 

And may the music of Thy name 

Refresh my soul In death.

Amen.
