1991 Denson Revision
to the Cooper book version of this tune
How sweet the name of Jesus sounds
In a believer's ear!
It soothes his sorrows, heals his wounds,
And drives away his fears,
And drives away his fears.
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.
Dear name! the rock on which I build,
My shield and hiding place;
My never-failing treaury filled
With boundless stores of grace,
With boundless stores of grace.
