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, And drives away His fear. 2. It makes the wounded spirit whole, and calms the troubled breat; 'Tis manna to the hungry soul, And to the weary, rest, And to the weary, rest. 3. Dear name - the rock on which I build, My shield and hiding place; My neverfailing treasure, filled With boundless stores of grace, 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, Accept the praise I bring.
