Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

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.
