How Sweet the Name of Jesus Sounds

I love Ambleside Online's December hymn, How Sweet the Name of Jesus Sounds!  This accompaniment is piano/ organ, the way the church in which I was raised (Westminster PCA in Lancaster, PA) would have played it.

Here are the links:
My version, free MP3 download:
Cyber hymnal has the PDF & Midi File. (Thanks again for the Midi File!):

I couldn't find a You Tube version I was happy with.  This one is beautiful to listen to, but not best to sing along with since the singer changes the melody a bit:
This one is fine for singing, but a bit slow:
This one has a fun up-tempo arrangement:

Remember, I'm just a Mom & not perfect myself!  My recording is made for my family - I hope it's helpful to you, too.  Feel free to use it for personal, educational, or church use - but contact me if you would like to use if for anything else.

Thanks!  :)  Jen


  1. Have you found the words and notes together anywhere? The online hymnal just has PDFs of the tunes without words this time.

  2. Phyllis,
    So sorry, but I can't find one online! I wish Cyber Hymnal had it. I did a little searching, to no avail. I know you're not in the US, so hymn books are probably hard to come by. I'm am grateful for my small collection, most of which I've picked up at used book sales for $1 a piece. So that's where I usually go when CyberHymnal doesn't have it. Or, I just print out the words as a poem - that's a second best option. Sorry I can't be more help to you! :)
