Scripture: Acts 4:12
1 How sweet the name of Jesus sounds In a believer's ear!
It soothes our sorrows, heals our wounds, And drives away all fear.
2 It makes the wounded spirit whole And calms the hear's unrest;
'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 treasury, filled With boundless stores of grace.
4 By thee my prayers acceptance gain Although with sin defiled.
The devil charges me in vain, And I am owned a child.
5 O Jesus, shepherd, guardian, friend, My Prophet, Priest, and King,
My Lord, my life, my way, my end, Accept the praise I bring.
6 How weak the effort of my heart, How cold my warmest thought;
But when I see thee as thou art, I'll praise thee as I ought.
7 Till then I would thy love proclaim With every fleeting breath;
And may the music of thy name Refresh my soul in death!
