O For a Thousand Tongues to Sing

Words: Charles Wesley, 1739.
Music: "Azmon," Carl Gotthelf Gläser, 1828; arranged by Lowell Mason, 1839


 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.  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.

 3.  He breaks the power of canceled sin,
     He sets the prisoner free;
     His blood can make the foulest clean,
     His blood availed for me.

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