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 I build
My shield and hiding-place
My never-failing treasury fill'd
With boundless stores of grace

Jesus! my Shepherd, Brother, Friend
My Prophet, Priest, and King
My Lord, my Life, my Way, my End
Accept the praise I bring

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

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