1 My Lord has done so much for me, thro’ all the passing days,
I cannot tell it all,
I cannot tell it all;
And tho’ I spend eternity in songs of joy and praise,
Still, I cannot tell it all.

Refrain:
I cannot tell it all,
I cannot tell it all,
I cannot tell you all he’s done for me, for me;
When on the cross he died,
For my sins was crucified,
It was freely done for you and me.

2 He puts a song upon my lips, and tho’ I sing for aye,
I cannot tell it all,
I cannot tell it all;
Tho’ I should sing his wondrous love each moment of the day,
Still, I cannot tell it all. [Refrain]

3 My falt’ring tongue in vain would speak the wonders of his grace,
I cannot tell it all,
I cannot tell it all;
And tho’ my soul in faith may view the glories of his face,
Still, I cannot tell it all. [Refrain]

4 Tho’ he has saved my soul from sin and banished all my fears,
I cannot tell it all,
I cannot tell it all;
And tho’ I sing around his throne a thousand thousand years,
Still, I cannot tell it all. [Refrain]
