214. The Tongue of Praise

1 Oh, for a thousand tongues, to sing
My great Redeemer's praise,
The glories of my God and King,
The triumphs of His grace!

Glory to God!
He breaks the Pow'r of sin,
Glory to God!
He sets the pris'ner free;
Glory to God!
He makes the foulest clear,
Glory to God!
His blood avails for me.

2 My gracious Master and my God,
Assist me to proclaim,
To spread thro’ all the earth abroad
The honors of Thy name. [Refrain]

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. [Refrain]

4 He breaks the pow’r of canceled sin,
He sets the prisoner free;
His blood can make the foulest clean,
His blood availed for me. [Refrain]
