Salem [1]

C.M.

Dossey's Choice, p. 58

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 treasure, filled

With boundless stores of grace!

4.

Jesus, my Shepherd, Savior, Friend,

My Prophet, Priest, and King,

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

Accept the praise I bring.

5.

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.

5.

Till then, I would thy love proclaim

With every fleeting breath;

And may the music of thy name

Refresh my soul in death.
