How Sweet the Name of Jesus

We sang a song today that I had never heard before.  It was an easy song and the words are beautiful.  I wanted to share it with you.

How Sweet the Name of Jesus
Written by John Newton

  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,
    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,
    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!
    With boundless stores of grace!
  4. Jesus, my Shepherd, Brother, Friend,
    My Prophet, Priest and King,
    My Lord, my Life, my Way, my End,
    Accept the praise I bring,
    Accept the praise I bring.
 Short and definitely sweet!  I'm so glad He has boundless stores of grace, aren't you?  Grace that is greater than ALL our sin!  Grace that exceeds our sin and our guilt!  WOW!
