O' For A Thousand Tongues to Sing

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

My gracious Master and my God
Assist me to proclaim
To spread through all the earth abroad
The honors of Thy name

So come on and sing out
Let our anthem grow loud
There is one great love

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

He breaks the power of canceled sin
He sets the prisoners free
His blood can make the foulest clean
His blood availed for me

He speaks and listening to His voice
New life the dead receive
The mournful broken hearts rejoice
The humble poor believe

Glory to God and praise and love
Be ever, ever giv’n
By saints below and saints above
The church in earth and Heav’n

There are so few words
That never grow old
There are so few words
That never grow old

I must repeat the the phrase, "'Tis music in the sinner's ears, 'Tis life ,and health, and peace." This a beautiful description of the Salvation that we encounter in Christ. Music in our wretched ears, these ears that are so unworthy to hear of the love that is so undeserved. It is the news that gives us life forevermore and the peace that no matter what suffering may be the peace we have in Christ is far greater . This love that allow to finish the song, "So come on and sing out, let our anthem grow loud, there is one great love, Jesus."
