o for a thousand tongues to sing

(Suggested Capo 4)

C                          Am

O for a thousand tongues to sing

                                    G

My great Redeemer’s praise,

C                          F

The glories of my God and King,

C            G          C

The triumphs of His grace!

 

 

C                          Am

My gracious Master and my God,

                      G

Assist me to proclaim,

C                          F

To spread through all the earth abroad

C            G          C

The honors of Thy name.

 

 

C                          Am

He breaks the power of canceled sin,

                                G

He sets the prisoner free;

C                          F

His blood can make the foulest clean,

C            G          C

His blood availed for me.

 

 

C                          Am

He speaks, and, listening to His voice,

                               G

New life the dead receive,

C                          F

The mournful, broken hearts rejoice,

C            G          C

The humble poor believe.

 

 

C                          Am

Look unto Him, ye nations, own

                              G

Your God, ye fallen race;

C                          F

Look, and be saved through faith alone,

C            G          C

Be justified by grace.

 

 

C                          Am

See all your sins on Jesus laid:

                                     G

The Lamb of God was slain,

C                          F

His soul was once an offering made

C            G          C

For every soul in pain.

 

 

C                          Am

Glory to God, and praise and love

                       G

Be ever, ever given,

C                          F

By saints below and saints above,

C            G          C

The church in earth and heaven.

 

 

C                          Am

O for a thousand tongues to sing

                                    G

My great Redeemer’s praise,

C                          F

The glories of my God and King,

C            G          C

The triumphs of His grace!
