O for a thousand tongues to sing
My great Redeemer’s praise,
The glories of my God and king,
The triumphs of his race,
the triumphs of his grace!
My gracious master and my God,
Assist me to proclaim,
To spread through all the earth abroad
The honors of thy name,
the honors of thy name.
Jesus! the name that charms our fears,
That bids our sorrows cease;
’Tis music in the sinners ears,
’Tis life, and health, and peace,
’tis life, and health, and peace.
He speaks, and listening to his voice,
new life the dead receive;
the mournful, broken hearts rejoice,
the humble poor believe,
the humble poor believe.
Hear Him, ye deaf; His praise, ye dumb,
Your loosened tongues employ;
Ye blind, behold your Savior come,
And leap, ye lame, for joy,
and leap, ye lame, for you, for joy!
