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 Dear name! the rock on which I build,
My shield and hiding place,
My never-failing treasure, filled
With boundless stores of grace!
3 Jesus, my Shepherd, Brother, Friend,
My Prophet, Priest and King,
My Lord, my life, my way, my end,
Accept the praise I bring.
4 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.
5 Till then I would Thy love proclaim
With every fleeting breath;
And may the music of Thy name
Refresh my soul in death.
