O For a Thousand Tongues to Sing

O for a thousand tongues to sing

     G      C         D

My great Redeemer's praise;

      G            C

The glories of my God and King

      G      D        G

The triumphs of His grace.


Jesus, the name that calms our fears

That bids our sorrows cease.

It's music in the sinner's hear,

It's 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.


He speaks and listening to His voice

New life the dead receive.

The mournful, broken hearts rejoice,

The humble, poor believe.


Hear Him, you deaf; His praise, you dumb

Your loosened tongues employ,

You blind, behold your Savior come

And leave, you lame, for joy!


My gracious Master and my God

Assist me to proclaim:

To spread through all the earth abroad

The honors of Your Name.
