How sweet the name of Jesus sounds In a believer's 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.

Dear name! the Rock on which we build, Our shield and hiding-place;
Our never failing treasury, filled With boundless stores of grace.

Jesus, our Saviour, Shepherd, Friend, Our Prophet, Priest, and King;
Our Lord, our Life, our Way, our End, Accept the praise we bring.

Weak is the effort of our heart, And cold our warmest thought;
But when we see Thee as Thou art, We'll praise Thee as we ought.

Till then we would Thy love proclaim With ev'ry fleeting breath;
And triumph in that blessed name Which quells the pow'r of death.
