my great Redeemer's praise,
the glories of my God and King,
the triumphs of his grace!
2 Jesus! the name that charms our fears,
and bids our sorrows cease;
'tis music in the sinner's ears,
'tis life, and health, and peace.
3 He breaks the power of cancelled sin,
he sets the prisoner free;
his blood can make the foulest clean,
his blood availed for me.
4 He speaks, and listening to his voice,
new life the dead receive,
the mournful, broken hearts rejoice,
the humble poor believe.
5 Hear him, ye deaf; his praise, ye dumb,
your loosened tongues employ;
ye blind, behold your Saviour come;
and leap, ye lame, for joy!
6 My gracious Master and my God,
assist me to proclaim,
to spread through all the earth abroad
the honours of thy name. Topics: Life in Christ Christ Incarnate - Public Ministry Used With Tune: RICHMOND
