“And my tongue will proclaim Your righteousness, Your praise all day long.” – Psalm 35:28
O for a Thousand Tongues to Sing
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 calms my fears,
That bids my 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 pris’ner free;
His blood can make the foulest clean,
His blood availed for me.
