Exultant praise to the Redeemer.
2 My gracious Master and my God,
To spread through all the earth abroad,
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 canceled sin,
His blood can make the foulest clean;
5 He speaks, and, listening to his voice, New life the dead receive;
The mournful, broken hearts rejoice;
6 Hear him, ye deaf; his praise, ye dumb, Your loosened tongues employ;
Ye blind, behold your Saviour come;
OME, let us join our cheerful songs
Ten thousand thousand are their tongues,
2 "Worthy the Lamb that died," they cry, "To be exalted thus!"
"Worthy the Lamb!" our hearts reply, "For he was slain for us."
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,
The universal King.
HOME, sound his praise abroad,
Jehovah is the sovereign God,
2 He formed the deeps unknown;
3 Come, worship at his throne,
Come, bow before the Lord;
4 To-day attend his voice,
