O for a Thousand Tongues to Sing – Charles Wesley

O for a thousand tongues to sing
my dear Redeemer’s praise,
the glories of my God and King,
the triumphs of his grace!

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.

He breaks the power of cancelled sin,
he sets the prisoner free:
his blood can make the foulest clean;
his blood availed for me.

He speaks; and, listening to his voice,
new life the dead receive,
the mournful broken hearts rejoice,
the humble poor believe.

Hear him, ye deaf; his praise, ye dumb,
your loosened tongues employ;
ye blind, behold your Saviour come;
and leap, ye lame, for joy!

My gracious Master and my God,
assist me to proclaim
and spread through all the earth abroad
the honours of thy name.

  1. Tim says:

    I love this song and think that if we believed the truths contained in this song there would be far more than a thousand tounges singing our great Redeemer praises in our city, (Rm. Valcea or wherever you are). If we lived our lives by the the abundant grace given to us, we would surly live victorious and see more and more coming to know and love all that our God is and we would spread a passion for our God and Savior in this world that we live in.
