How Sweet The Name of Jesus Sounds – Lor

This hymn has held a special place in my heart for over 60 years. Singing it as a young boy sparked a love for singing hymns that has stayed with me ever since. Though much of the service went over my head back then, the name Jesus was sweet to me.

Yesterday, we sang it again. This time, a particular verse that spoke directly to Jesus, acknowledging his many aspects, struck me. In this version by LOr she repeats that verse at the end.

O Jesus, shepherd, guardian, friend,
my Prophet, Priest, and King,
my Lord, my Life, my Way, my End,
accept the praise I bring.
