Hymnal 1982 (493) O for a thousand tongues to sing

Recordings:    PIANO    PARTS    SOPRANO    ALTO    TENOR    BASS

1 Oh, 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,
and spread through all the earth abroad
the honors of thy Name. 
3 Jesus! the Name that charms our fears
and bids our sorrows cease;
'tis music in the sinner's ears,
'tis life and health and peace. 
4 He speaks; and, listening to his voice,
new life the dead receive,
the mournful broken hearts rejoice,
the humble poor believe. 
5 Hear him, ye deaf; ye voiceless ones,
your loosened tongues employ;
ye blind, behold your Savior comes;
and leap, ye lame, for joy! 
6 Glory to God and praise and love
be now and ever given
by saints below and saints above,
the church in earth and heaven.
