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!
