O for a thousand tongues to sing

1) O for a thousand
tongues to sing
My great Redeemer's praise,
The glories of
my God and King,
The triumphs of His grace!

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

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.

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.
