1 O blessed God, to Thee I raise
My voice in thankful hymns of praise;
And when my voice shall silent be,
My silence shall be praise to Thee.
2 For voice and silence both impart
The filial homage of my heart,
And both alike are understood
By Thee, Thou Parent of all good;—
3 Whose grace is all unsearchable,
Whose care for me no tongue can tell,
Who lov’st my loudest praise to hear
And lov’st to bless my voiceless prayer.
