The Hymn of the Month
"How Sweet the Name of Jesus Sounds"
And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved. Acts 4:12
Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. John 14:13
And it shall come to pass that everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. Acts 2:21
How sweet the name of Jesus sounds
In a believer's ear!
It soothes our sorrows, heals our wounds,
And drives away our fear.
Dear name! The rock on which I build,
My shield and hiding place;
My never-failing treasury filled
With boundless stores of grace.
O Jesus, shepherd, guardian, friend,
My Prophet, Priest, and King,
Muy Lord, my life, my way, my end,
Accept the praise I bring.
How weak the effort of my heart,
How cold my warmest thought!
But when I see Thee as Thou art,
I'll praise Thee as I ought.
We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.
