O FOR a thousand tongues to sing

My great Redeemer's praise!

The glories of my God and King,

The triumphs of his grace!

My gracious Master and my God,

Assist me to proclaim,-

To spread through all the earth abroad

The honors of thy Name.

Jesus! the name that charms our fears,

That bids our sorrows cease;

'T is music in the sinner's ears,

'T is life, and health and peace.

He breaks the power of cancell'd sin,

He sets the pris'ner free;

His blood can make the foulest clean;

His blood avail'd for me.

He speaks-and, listening to his voice,

New life the dead receive;

The mournful, broken hearts rejoice;

The humble poor believe.

Hear him ye deaf; his praise, ye dumb,

Your loosen'd tongues employ;

Ye blind, behold your Saviour come,

And leap, ye lame for joy.
