How sweet the name of Jesus
Sounds in a believers' ear
It soothes his sorrows
Heals His wounds
And drives away his fear

It makes the wounded spirit whole
And calms the troubled breast
'Tis manna to the hungry soul
And to the weary rest

How sweet the name of Jesus
Sounds to me

Dear name the Rock on which I build
My shield and hiding place
My never failing treasury filled
With boundless stores of grace

Jesus my Shepherd Savior Friend
My Prophet Priest and King
My Lord my Life my Way my End
Accept this praise I bring
