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 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 canceled sin;
|: He sets the prisoner free. :|
his blood can make the foulest clean;
his blood availed for me.
