HYMN 515

CMS 331 H.C 318 (FE 540)
"Thy name is as ointment poured forth" 
- Sol. 1:3

1.  HOW sweet the name of Jesus sound 

     In a believer’s ear

     It soothes his sorrows, heals his wounds

     And drives away his fears.

2.  It makes the wounded spirit whole 

     And calms the troubled breast 

     ‘Tis manna to the hungry soul 

     And to the weary rest.

3.  Dear name the rock on which I built 

     My shield and hiding place

     My never failing treasury, filled 

     With boundless stores of grace.

4.  Jesus my shepherd, husband, Friend 

     My Prophet, Priest and King

     My Lord, my life, my way, my end 

     Accept the praise I bring.

5.  Week 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.

6.  Till then I would Thy love proclaim 

     With every fleeting breadth:

     And may the music of thy name

     Refresh my soul in death.  Amen
