Is. 50:5 The Lord Jehovah has opened my ear; And I was not rebellious, Nor did I turn back.

Always rejoice, Unceasingly pray, In everything give thanks.

(Repeat the last two lines of each stanza)

How sweet the Name of Jesus sounds
In a believer's ear!
It soothes his sorrow, 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 we build;
Our shield and hiding-place;
Our never-failing treasure, filled
With boundless stores of grace.
Jesus, our Savior, Shepherd, Friend,
Our Prophet, Priest, and King;
Our Lord, our Life, our Way, our End,
Accept the praise we bring.
Weak is the effort of our heart,
And cold our warmest thought;
But when we see Thee as Thou art,
We'll praise Thee as we ought.
Till then we would Thy love proclaim
With every fleeting breath;
And triumph in that blessed Name
Which quells the power of death.
