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!
2 He speaks, and listening to his voice,
new life the dead receive;
the mournful, broken hearts rejoice;
the humble poor believe.
3 Hear him, you deaf; you voiceless ones,
your loosened tongues employ;
you blind, behold your Savior come;
and leap, you lame, for joy!
