O for a thousand tongues to sing




O for a thousand tongues to sing
|: My great Redeemer's praise, :|
The glories of my God and King,
|: The triumphs of His grace! :|


Jesus! the name that calms our fears,
|: That bids our sorrows cease; :|
'Tis music in the sinner's ears,
|: 'Tis life, and health, and peace. :|


He breaks the power of cancelled sin,
|: He sets the prisoner free; :|
His blood can make the foulest clean,
|: His blood availed for me. :|


See, all your sins on Jesus laid;
|: The Lamb of God was slain, :|
His soul was once an offering made
|: For every soul of man. :|


He speaks, and, listening to His voice,
|: New life the dead receive, :|
The mournful, broken hearts rejoice,
|: The humble poor believe. :|


Hear Him, ye deaf; His praise, ye dumb,
|: Your loosened tongues employ; :|
Ye blind, behold your Saviour come;
|: And leap, ye lame, for joy! :|


My gracious Master and my God,
|: Assist me to proclaim, :|
To spread through all the earth abroad
|: The honours of Thy Name. :|


In Christ your Head, you then shall know,
|: Shall feel your sins forgiven; :|
Anticipate your heaven below,
|: And own that love is heaven. :|


Glory to God, and praise and love
|: Be ever, ever given, :|
By saints below and saints above,
|: The church in earth and heaven. :|


On this glad day the glorious Sun
|: Of Righteousness arose; :|
On my benighted soul He shone
|: And filled it with repose. :|


Sudden expired the legal strife,
|: ’Twas then I ceased to grieve; :|
My second, real, living life
|: I then began to live. :|


Then with my heart I first believed,
|: Believed with faith divine, :|
Power with the Holy Ghost received
|: To call the Savior mine. :|


I felt my Lord’s atoning blood
|: Close to my soul applied; :|
Me, me He loved, the Son of God,
|: For me, for me He died! :|


I found and owned His promise true,
|: Ascertained of my part, :|
My pardon passed in heaven I knew
|: When written on my heart. :|


Look unto Him, ye nations, own
|: Your God, ye fallen race; :|
Look, and be saved through faith alone,
|: Be justified by grace. :|


See all your sins on Jesus laid:
|: The Lamb of God was slain, :|
His soul was once an offering made
|: For every soul of man. :|


Awake from guilty nature’s sleep,
|: And Christ shall give you light, :|
Cast all your sins into the deep,
|: And wash the Æthiop white. :|


Harlots and publicans and thieves
|: In holy triumph join! :|
Saved is the sinner that believes
|: From crimes as great as mine. :|


Murderers and all ye hellish crew
|: In holy triumph join! :|
Believe the Savior died for you;
|: For me the Savior died. :|


With me, your chief,
ye then shall know,
|: Shall feel your sins forgiven; :|
Anticipate your heaven below,
|: And own that love is heaven. :|
