FOR a thousand tongues, to sing
The glories of my God and King,
2 My gracious Master, and my God,
To spread, through all the earth abroad,
3 Jesus!-the Name that charms our fears.
"Tis life, and health, and peace.
4 He breaks the power of cancell'd sin,
Kis blood can make the foulest clean;
5 He speaks, and, list'ning to his voice, New life the dead receive;
The mournful, broken hearts rejoice;
6 Hear him, ye deaf; his praise, ye dumb, Your loosen'd tongues employ;
Ye blind, behold your Saviour come;
The song of Moses and the Lamb.
AWAKE, and sing the song
Of Moses and the Lamb;
Wake, every heart and every tongue,
For those whose sins he bore.
5 There shall each raptured tongue
And sweeter voices tune the song
The Heavenly Guest.
HOME, let us who in Christ believe,
Our common Saviour praise:
To him, with joyful voices, give
2 He now stands knocking at the door
The worst need keep him out no more,
3 Through grace we hearken to thy voice, Yield to be saved from sin;
In sure and certain hope rejoice,
That thou wilt enter in.
4 Come quickly in, thou heavenly guest,
But sup with us, and let the feast
The Lamb worshipped on earth and in heaven.
Ten thousand thousand are their tongues,
2 Worthy the Lamb that died, they cry,
Worthy the Lamb, our hearts reply,
3 Jesus is worthy to receive
And blessings more than we can give,
4 The whole creation join in one,
Of Him that sits upon the throne,
COME, let us tune our loftiest song,
3 Burn every breast with Jesus' love;
4 Extol the Lamb with loftiest song,
The glories of our King.
NOME, ye that love the Saviour's name,
The Sovereign of your hearts proclaim,
2 Behold your Lord, your Master, crown'd With glories all divine:
And tell the wond'ring nations round,
8 When, in his earthly courts, we view
We long to love as angels do,
And wish, like them, to sing.
4 And shall we long and wish in vain!
Joining the song of the Church triumphant.
Sound the eternal throne,
NG we the song of those who stand
Of every kindred, clime, and land,-
2 Life's poor distinctions vanish here;
Our Saviour and his flock, appear,
