How Sweet the Name of Jesus Sounds

to interpret the gentle sweetness of the Name above All Names, I decided to depart from the usual strong colors I work with and turn to a less-saturated palette. The result is an abstracted orchestra of nature that showcases a hand-picked bouquet of typography.

Download a free song sheet of this hymnHow Sweet the Name of Jesus Sounds

John Newton, 1779

How sweet the name of Jesus sounds in a believer’s ear!
It soothes his sorrows, 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 I build, my shield and hiding place,
my never failing treas’ry, filled with boundless stores of grace.

Jesus, my Shepherd, Brother, Friend, my Prophet, Priest, and King,
my Lord, my Life, my Way, my End, accept the praise I bring.

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.

Till then I would thy love proclaim with every fleeting breath;
and may the music of thy name refresh my soul in death.

“Thine oils have a goodly fragrance; Thy name is as oil poured forth.” —Song of Solomon 1:3
