3 Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. 4 I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ; 5 That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge; 6 Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you: 7 So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ: 8 Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.(KJV)

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.
