How Sweet the Name of Jesus Sounds


   G        Am7       D     G  
How sweet the Name of Jesus sounds
         Am   Am7       D   D7   
In a believer’s ear!
   C          Am7      D         Em  
It soothes his sorrows, heals his wounds,
  Cma7    D7       G
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, filled
With boundless stores of grace!

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

Words by John Newton and Music by Alexander Reinagle
