How Sweet The Name Of Jesus Sounds (St Peter, Organ, 6 Verses)

How Sweet The Name Of Jesus Sounds : Lyrics

1. How sweet the Name of Jesus sounds
In a believer’s ear!
It soothes his sorrows, heals his wounds,
And drives away his 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. Dear Name, the Rock on which I build,
My Shield and Hiding Place,
My never failing treas’ry, filled
With boundless stores of grace!

4. Jesus! my shepherd, brother, friend,
my prophet, priest and king,
My Lord, my life, my way, my end,
Accept the praise I bring.

5. Weak is the effort of my heart,
And cold my warmest thought;
But when I see Thee as Thou art,
I’ll praise Thee as I ought.

6. Till then I would Thy love proclaim
With every fleeting breath,
And may the music of Thy Name
Refresh my soul in death!
