Hymn/Song Information

O that I had a thousand voices




O that I had a thousand voices
And with a thousand tongues
could tell
Of Him in Whom the earth rejoices
Who all things wisely does and well!
My grateful heart would then be free
To tell what God has done for me.


O all ye powers that He implanted,
Arise, and silence keep no more;
Put forth the strength
that He hath granted,
Your noblest work is to adore.
O soul and body, be ye meet
With heartfelt praise
your Lord to greet!


Ye forest leaves,
so green and tender,
That dance for joy in summer air;
Ye meadow grasses,
bright and slender,
Ye flowers, so wondrous sweet
and fair,
That live to show His praise alone,
Help me to make His glory known.


Ye creatures that have
breath and motion,
That fill with life, earth, sea and sky,
O join me in my heart’s devotion,
As I exalt the Lord most high:
My utmost powers can ne’er aright
Declare the wonders of His might.


O Father, deign Thou,
I beseech Thee,
To listen to my earthly lays;
A nobler strain in heav’n
shall reach Thee
When I with angels hymn
Thy praise,
And learn amid their choirs to sing
Loud hallelujahs to my King.


Lord, I will tell, while I am living,
Thy goodness forth
with every breath
And greet each morning
with thanksgiving
Until my heart is still in death;
Yea, when at last my lips grow cold,
Thy praise shall in my sighs be told.


O Father, deign Thou,
I beseech Thee,
To listen to my earthly lays;
A nobler strain in heaven
shall reach Thee,
When I with angels hymn Thy praise
And learn amid their choirs to sing
Loud hallelujahs to my King.
