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 charms our fears,
That bids our sorrows cease,
'Tis music in the sinner's ears,
'Tis life and health and peace.
4 He breaks the pow'r of canceled sin;
He sets the pris'ner free.
His blood can make the foulest clean -
His blood availed for me.
5 Hear Him, ye deaf; His praise, ye dumb,
Your loosened tongues employ;
Ye blind, behold your Savior come;
And leap, ye lame, for joy.
6 Glory to God and praise and love
Be ever, ever giv'n
By saints below and saints above -
The Church in earth and heav'n.
