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) My gracious Master and my God,assist me to proclaim,to spread thro' all the earth abroad the honors of your name.

3) 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.

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

5) To God all glory, praise, and love be now and ever given by saints below and saints above,the Church in earth and heaven.

"O For a Thousand Tongues To Sing" was written by Charles Wesley in 1739. He wrote this hymn to commemorate the first anniversary of his conversion.
