332. O for a Thousand Tongues to Sing

1 O for a thousand tongues to sing
my great Redeemer's praise,
the glories of my God and King,
the triumphs of His grace.

2 My gracious Master and my God,
assist me to proclaim,
to spread through all the earth abroad
the honors of Thy name.

3 Jesus, the name that calms our fears,
that bids my sorrows cease;
'tis music in the sinner's ears,
'tis life and health and peace.

4 He breaks the power of canceled sin,
He sets the prisoner free;
His blood can make the foulest clean,
His blood availed for me.

5 He speaks, and listening to His voice,
new life the dead receive;
the mournful, broken hearts rejoice,
the humble poor believe.

6 To God all glory, praise, and love
be ever, ever given
by saints below and saints above,
the church in earth and heaven.
