Oh, for a thousand tongues to sing
My great Redeemerís praise,
The glories of my god and King,
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 your name.
The name of Jesus charms our fears
And bids our sorrows cease,
Sings music in the sinnerís ears,
Brings life and health and peace.
He breaks the power of canceled sin;
He sets the prisoner free.
His blood can make the foulest clean;
His blood avails for me.
Look to the Lord, who did atone
For sin, O fallen race.
Look and be saved through faith alone,
Be justified by grace.
See all our sins on Jesus laid;
The Lamb has made us whole.
His soul was once an offering made
For every human soul.
To God all glory, praise, and love
Be now and ever given
By saints below and saints above
The Church in earth and heaven.
