“And my tongue will proclaim Your righteousness, Your praise all day long.” – Psalm 35:28

O for a Thousand Tongues to Sing

Verse 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!

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 calms my fears,
That bids my sorrows cease;
‘Tis music in the sinner’s ears;
‘Tis life and health and peace.

Verse 4:
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.
