How Sweet The Name
of Jesus Sounds

How sweet the Name of Jesus sounds
In a Believerís ear!
It soothes his sorrows, heals his wounds,
And drives away his fear.

It makes the wounded spirit whole,
And calms the troubled breast;
íTis 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 treasury, filled
With boundless stores of grace!

By Thee my prayers acceptance gain,
Although with sin defiled;
Satan accuses me in vain,
And I am owned a child.

Jesus! my Shepherd, Bridegroom, Friend,
O 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,
Iíll 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!

A Devotional Note from Cobblestone Road Ministries:

Philippians 2:8-11
And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and
became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore
God also hath highly exalted him, and
given him a name which is
above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should
of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under
the earth;
And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ
is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

How sweet the Name Of Jesus sounds! His Name actually
means "Salvation." The Hebrew Name given to Him
is Yeshua, which means salvation. The angel told
"thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he
shall save his people from their sins."

The Lord Jesus is found throughout the Old Testament.

Psalm 21:5, which is a Messianic Psalm, declares:

His glory is great in thy salvation [Hebrew is "Yeshua"]:
honor and majesty hast thou laid upon him.

So the Hebrew translation would read:

His glory is great in thy Yeshua:
honor and majesty hast thou laid upon him.

The Lord Jesus-- Yeshua-- is great! He has a Name given
above every name! In His Name, demons tremble, [spiritual]
mountains are moved, and prayers are answered! He is worthy
of our worship! He is to be feared and praised! He is seated in all
power on the right hand of the Father! Take that in for a moment!
We have such a High Priest in Heaven-- who is looking out for
us, who is able to meet every need we have-- we are simply to
look to Him and have faith that He will do what He promised.

2Chron 20:9 
If, when evil cometh upon us, as the sword, judgment,
or pestilence, or famine, we stand before this house,
and in
thy presence, (for thy name is in this house,)
and cry unto
thee in our affliction,
then thou wilt hear and help.

As Believers in Yeshua, His name is in our "house"--
He dwells within us by the power of the Holy Spirit and
we may boldly come before God's Throne and in His
presence make our petitions known. His laws are written
upon our hearts and we cry unto God, "Abba Father."

In this day of apostasy, it is so important to hold fast
the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ!
We must keep
His word and NEVER deny His Name!

Revelation 3:8 
I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open
door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength,
and hast
kept my word, and hast not denied my name.

Revelation 15:4 
Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name for thou
only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before
thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.

Jeremiah 10:6
Forasmuch as there is none like unto thee, O LORD;
thou art great, and thy name is great in might.
