636. Oh, for a Thousand Tongues to Sing

1 Oh, 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 thro’ all the earth abroad
The honors of Thy name.

2 Jesus, the name that charms our fears,
That bids our sorrows cease;
‘Tis music in the sinner's ears,
‘Tis life, and health, and peace.
He breaks the power of canceled sin,
He sets the pris’ner free;
His blood can make the foulest clean,
His blood availed for me.

3 He speaks, and, list’ning to His voice,
New life the dead receive;
The mournful, broken hearts rejoice;
The humble poor believe.
Hear Him, ye deaf; Him praise, ye dumb,
Your loosened tongues employ;
Ye blind, behold your Saviour come,
And leap, ye lame, for joy.

4 Look unto Him, ye nations, own
Your God, ye fallen race!
Look, and be saved through faith alone;
Be justified by grace.
See all your sins on Jesus laid:
The Lamb of God was slain:
His soul was once an off’ring made
For ev’ry soul of man.
