1 How good the name of Jesus sounds
To all believing ears!
It soothes our sorrows, heals our wounds,
And drives away our fears.
2 It makes the wounded spirit whole,
And calms the troubled mind;
His manna for each hungry soul,
The lost and weary find.
3 Blest Name! the rock on which we build,
Our shield and resting place,
Our never-failing comfort, filled
With blessing of his grace.
4 O Jesus, Shepherd, Guardian, Friend,
Our Prophet, Priest and King,
Our Lord, our Life, our Way, our End,
Accept the praise we bring.
