O for a thousand tongues to sing
Tune: Lyngham
Metre: 86 86 extended

 

O for a thousand tongues to sing

my great Redeemerís praise,

my great Redeemerís praise,

the glories of my God and King,

the triumphs of His grace,

the triumphs of His grace,

the triumphs of His grace.

 

Jesus! the name that charms our fears,

that bids our sorrows cease,

that bids our sorrows cease;

ítis music in the sinnerís ears,

ítis life and health and peace,

ítis life and health and peace,

ítis life and health and peace.

 

He breaks the power of cancelled sin,

He sets the prisoner free,

He sets the prisoner free;

His blood can make the foulest clean;

His blood availed for me,

His blood availed for me,

His blood availed for me.

 

He speaks, and, listening to His voice,

new life the dead receive,

new life the dead receive,

the mournful, broken hearts rejoice,

the humble poor believe,

the humble poor believe,

the humble poor believe.

 

Hear Him, ye deaf; His praise, ye dumb,

your loosened tongues employ,

your loosened tongues employ:

ye blind, behold your Saviour come;

and leap, ye lame, for joy,

and leap, ye lame, for joy,

and leap, ye lame, for joy.

 

My gracious Master, and my God,

assist me to proclaim,

assist me to proclaim,

to spread through all the earth abroad,

the honours of Thy name,

the honours of Thy name,

the honours of Thy name.
