14 So shall the knowledge of wisdom be unto thy soul: when thou hast found it, then there shall be a reward, and thy expectation shall not be cut off.

     15 Lay not wait, O wicked man, against the dwelling of the righteous; spoil not his resting place: 16 For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief.

     17 Rejoice not when thine enemy falleth, and let not thine heart be glad when he stumbleth: 18 Lest the LORD see it, and it displease him, and he turn away his wrath from him.

     19 Fret not thyself because of evil men, neither be thou envious at the wicked; 20 For there shall be no reward to the evil man; the candle of the wicked shall be put out.

     21 My son, fear thou the LORD and the king: and meddle not with them that are given to change: 22 For their calamity shall rise suddenly; and who knoweth the ruin of them both?(KJV)

How Sweet the Name of Jesus Sounds

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

5. Jesus, my Shepherd, Guardian, Friend, 
My Prophet, Priest, and King, 
My Lord, my Life, my Way, my End, 
Accept the praise I bring. 

6. 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. 

7. Till then I would Thy love proclaim 
With every fleeting breath; 
And may the music of Thy name 
Refresh my soul in death.
