The name of Christ most sweet

That name to me sounds ever sweet

Published in 21 hymnals

Representative Text

1 That name to me sounds ever sweet,
Where grace and truth doth always meet,
Where righteousness doth peace embrace,
And opens wide a store of grace.

2 A meeting place it is indeed,
Where mercy meets the sinner's need,
And opens wide a gracious store,
Sufficient to relieve the poor.

3 Hark! don't you hear the heavenly call,
It soundeth loud, it is to all--
To high and low, to bond and free,
That none may say,"'tis not for me."

4 "Ho! every one that thirsts (he cries)
Here's wine and milk, and large supplies;
Come now to me and drink your fill,
'Tis free for whosoever will.

5 "Come now receive, I ask no pay,
But freely give it all away,
To all that do my word believe,
And freely now my grace receive."
