C.M. Revelation v. 12, 13.

By A Collection of Hymns

      C.M. "Thou shalt call his name Jesus." Matt. i, 21.
      1 HOW sweet the name of Jesus sounds
      In a believer's ear!
      It soothes his sorrows, heals his wounds,
      And drives away his fear.

      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 build,
      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 Weak 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 breath;
      And may the music of thy name
      Refresh my soul in death!
