O For A Thousand Tongues (NEW)

Charles Wesley, 1739

Verse 1
O for a thousand tongues to sing
My great Redeemers praise,
My great Redeemers praise
The glories of my God and King,
The triumphs of His grace! (x4)
[Women echo x3]

Verse 2
My gracious Master and my God,
Assist me to proclaim,
Assist me to proclaim
To spread through all the earth abroad
The honors of Thy name. (x4)
[Women echo x3]

Verse 3
Jesus! the name that charms our fears,
That bids our sorrows cease;
That bids our sorrows cease
‘Tis music in the sinner’s ears,
‘Tis life, and health, and peace. (x4)
[Women echo x3]

Verse 4
He breaks the power of reigning sin,
He sets the prisoner free;
He sets the prisoner free;
His blood can make the foulest clean,
His blood availed for me. (x4)
[Women echo x3]

Verse 5
He speaks, and, listening to His voice,
New life the dead receive,
New life the dead receive
The mournful, broken hearts rejoice,
The humble poor believe. (x4)
[Women echo x3]

Verse 6
Hear Him, ye deaf; His praise, ye dumb,
Your loosened tongues employ;
Your loosened tongues employ;
Ye blind, behold your Savior come,
And leap, ye lame, for joy. (x4)

Verse 7
Glory to God, and praise and love
Be ever, ever given,
Be ever, ever given,
By saints below and saints above,
The church in earth and heaven. (x4)

Verse 8
I felt my Lord’s atoning blood
Close to my soul applied;
Close to my soul applied;
Me, me He loved, the Son of God,
For me, for me He died! (x4)
[Women echo x3]

Verse 9
See all your sins on Jesus laid:
The Lamb of God was slain,The Lamb of God was slain,
His soul was once an offering made
For many souls of men. (x4)
[Women echo x3]

Verse 10
Harlots and publicans and thieves
In holy triumph join!
In holy triumph join!
Saved is the sinner that believes
From crimes as great as mine. (x4)
[Women echo x3]
