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 I build,
my shield and hiding place,
my never-failing treas’ry 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. ’Til then I would thy love proclaim
with ev’ry fleeting breath;
and may the music of thy name
refresh my soul in death.
