The Name of Jesus. Song 1. 3; Mal. 1. 11; Col. 1. 19

J. Newton                                    C.M.          

   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 treasury, filled
With boundless stores of grace.
