"How candy the identify of Jesus sounds" by John Newton
How sweet the name of Jesus sounds
In the ear of a believer!
It soothes our worries, heals our wounds,
And dispels our fear.
It heals the wounded mind
And calms the restless chest;
It is manna for the hungry soul
And to the tired, rest.
O Jesus, shepherd, guardian, friend,
My prophet, priest and king,
My lord my life my way my end
Accept the praise I bring.
How weak my heart is
How cold my warmest thought;
But when I see you the way you are
I will praise you as I should.
Until then, I would announce your love
With every fleeting breath;
And like the music of your name
Refresh my soul in death.
