Salem [1]


Dossey's Choice, p. 58


How sweet the name of Jesus sounds

In a believer's ear!

It soothes his sorrows, heals his wounds,

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 treasure, filled

With boundless stores of grace!


Jesus, my Shepherd, Savior, Friend,

My Prophet, Priest, and King,

My Lord, my Life, my Way, my End,

Accept the praise I bring.


Weak is the effort of my heart,

And cold my warmest thought;

But when I see thee as thou art,

I'll praise thee as I ought.


Till then, I would thy love proclaim

With every fleeting breath;

And may the music of thy name

Refresh my soul in death.
