Lyrics; How Sweet the Name of Jesus Sounds

how sweet the name of Jesus sounds

Song by; John Newton

Year; 1779

1

How sweet the name of Jesus sounds
in a believer’s ear!
It soothes our sorrows, heals our wounds,
and drives away our fear.

2

It makes the wounded spirit whole
and calms the troubled breast;
’tis manna to the hungry soul,
and to the weary, rest.

3

O Jesus, shepherd, guardian, friend,
my Prophet, Priest, and King,
my Lord, my Life, my Way, my End,
accept the praise I bring.

4

How weak the effort of my heart,
how cold my warmest thought;
but when I see you as you are,
I’ll praise you as I ought.

5

Till then I would your love proclaim
with every fleeting breath;
and may the music of your name
refresh my soul in death.

Psalter Hymnal, 1987
