O for a Thousand Tongues to Sing

Verse 1:
Oh for a thousand tongues to sing
My great Redeemer’s praise
The glories of my God and King
The triumphs of His grace

Verse 2:
My gracious Master and my God
Assist me to proclaim
To spread through all the earth abroad
The honors of Thy name

Verse 3:
Jesus! the name that charms our fears
That bids our sorrows cease
’Tis music in the sinner’s ears
’Tis life and health and peace

Verse 4:
He breaks the power of canceled sin
He sets the prisoner free
His blood can make the foulest clean
His blood availed for me

Verse 5:
He speaks, and listening to His voice
New life the dead receive
The mournful, broken hearts rejoice
The humble poor believe

Verse 6:
Hear Him, ye deaf; His praise, ye dumb
Your loosened tongues employ
Ye blind, behold your Savior come
And leap, ye lame, for joy

Verse 7:
Glory to God, and praise and love
Be ever, ever given
By saints below and saints above
The church in earth and heaven

Words by Charles Wesley (1739). Music arranged by Lowell Mason (1839).
