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,
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,
And to the weary rest.

3 Dear name- the rock on which I build,
My shield and hiding place;
My never failing treasure, filled
With boundless stores of grace,
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,
Accept the praise I bring.
