HYMN 116

H.C. 565, C.M (FE 133)
"Oh Lord our Lord how excellent is 
thy name on eath" - Ps.8:1

1.  OH! for a thousand tongue to sing 

     My dear redeemer's Praise

     The glories of my God and King 

     The triumphs of His grace.

2.  Jesus the name that charms our fears 

     That bids our sorrows cease

     ‘Tis music in the sinners ears

     ‘T'is life and health, and peace.

3.  He breaks the power of cancelled sin 

     And sels the prisoner free

     His blood can make the foulest clean 

     His blood availeth me.

4.  He speaks and listening to His voice 

     New life the dead receive

     The mournful broken hearts rejoice 

     The humble poor believe.

5.  Hear Him ye dead, His praise ye dumb 

     Your loosened tongues employ

     Ye blind behold your Saviour come 

     And leap ye lame for joy.

6.  My gracious Master and my God 

     Assist me to proclaim

     And spread through all the earth abroad 

     The honours of His Name.  Amen
