How Sweet the Name of Jesus Sounds

No automatic alt text available.

From where do you draw inner strength and peace? What soothes your inward-man? What breaks the chains and heals the soul?

How sweet the name of Jesus sounds in a believer’s ear!
It soothes our sorrows, heals our wounds, and drives away our fear.

It makes the wounded spirit whole and calms the troubled breast;
‘Tis manna to the hungry soul, and to the weary, rest.

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 your love proclaim with ev’ry fleeting breath;
and may the music of Thy name refresh my soul in death.

~ John Newton, 1774
