A Thousand Tongues

O for a thousand Tongues to sing
My great Redeemer's 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 thy name.

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.

He breaks the power of canceled 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, ye deaf; His praise, ye dumb,
Your loosened tongues emplo9y;
Ye blind, behold your Savior come,
And leap, ye lame, for joy.

In Christ, your head, you then shall know,
Shall feel your sins forgiven;
Anticipate your heaven below,
And own that love is heaven.

Longing for a thousand use for singing praise to the God who has redeemed me from my sin, and of his glories, and the triumphs of his grace.........I don't often enough, use the one I have. J.

  1. Not many of us do use our "one" enough, well we use them plenty, and for all the wrong reasons... Why does that come so easily?

    "Hear him, ye deaf; His praise, ye dumb" - how often do these words apply to me?

    Thanks for posting this; it's one of my favorites. :)
