1074. Blessed Be the Name of the Lord

1 Oh, for a thousand tongues to sing,
Blessed be the Name of the Lord!
The glories of my God and king!
Blessed be the Name of the Lord!

Refrain:
Blessed be the Name, blessed be the Name,
Blessed be the Name of the Lord!
Blessed be the Name, blessed be the Name,
Blessed be the Name of the Lord!

2 Jesus! the Name that charms our fears,
Blessed be the Name of the Lord!
'Tis music in the sinner's ears,
Blessed be the Name of the Lord! [Refrain]

3 He breaks the pow'r of canceled sin,
Blessed be the Name of the Lord!
His blood can make the foulest clean,
Blessed be the Name of the Lord! [Refrain]

4 I never shall forget that day,
Blessed be the Name of the Lord!
When Jesus washed my sins away,
Blessed be the Name of the Lord! [Refrain]
