How sweet the Name of Jesus sounds

1
How sweet the Name of Jesus sounds
  In a believer’s ear!
It soothes his sorrow, heals his wounds,
  And drives away his fear,
  And drives away his fear,
  And drives away his fear,
It soothes his sorrow, 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,
  And to the weary rest,
  And to the weary rest,
’Tis manna to the hungry soul,
  And to the weary rest.
3
Dear Name! the Rock on which we build;
  Our shield and hiding-place;
Our never-failing treasury, filled
  With boundless stores of grace,
  With boundless stores of grace,
  With boundless stores of grace,
Our never-failing treasury, filled
  With boundless stores of grace.
4
Jesus, our Savior, Shepherd, Friend,
  Our Prophet, Priest, and King;
Our Lord, our Life, our Way, our End,
  Accept the praise we bring,
  Accept the praise we bring,
  Accept the praise we bring,
Our Lord, our Life, our Way, our End,
  Accept the praise we bring.
5
Weak is the effort of our heart,
  And cold our warmest thought;
But when we see Thee as Thou art,
  We’ll praise Thee as we ought,
  We’ll praise Thee as we ought,
  We’ll praise Thee as we ought,
But when we see Thee as Thou art,
  We’ll praise Thee as we ought.
6
Till then we would Thy love proclaim
  With every fleeting breath;
And triumph in that blessed Name
  Which quells the pow’r of death,
  Which quells the pow’r of death,
  Which quells the pow’r of death,
And triumph in that blessed Name
  Which quells the pow’r of death.

It is not the name of Jesus that is powerful and sweet, BUT THE LORD JESUS HIMSELF, and it is faith in Him that drives away our fear ( 1 John says perfect love casts out all fear, and God alone has perfect love).

In order to have faith in Jesus and be born again, people must repent and believe the gospel and therefore be saved and born again (Mark 1, Romans 10 verse 9, and John 3 verse 3).

It is possible to go to church, sing hymns and 'pray' YET NOT BE A BORN AGAIN CHRISTIAN who is going to Heaven.
