CH4 352 - O for a thousand tongues
Played by Catriona Lachlan at Polbeth Harwood Church
O for a thousand tongues to sing
My great Redeemer's praise,
The glories of my God and King,
The triumphs of his grace!
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 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, ye deaf; His praise, ye dumb
Your loosened tongues employ
Ye blind, behold your Saviour come
And leap, ye lame, for joy
My gracious Master and my God,
Assist me to proclaim,
To spread through all the earth abroad
The honours of thy name.
