O For A Thousand Tongues

Charles Wesley

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 pow’r of canceled sin
He sets the pris’ner free
His blood can make the foulest clean
His blood availed for me

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

Verse 6
Glory to God, and praise and love
Be ever, ever giv’n
By saints below and saints above
The church in earth and heav’n
