UMH 57: O For a Thousand Tongues to Sing

1. O for a thousand tongues to sing
my great Redeemer's praise,
the glories of my God and King,
the triumphs of his grace!

2. My gracious Master and my God,
assist me to proclaim,
to spread through all the earth abroad
the honors of thy name.

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,
he sets the prisoner free;
his blood can make the foulest clean;
his blood availed for me.

5. He speaks, and listening to his voice,
new life the dead receive;
the mournful, broken hearts rejoice,
the humble poor believe.

6. Hear him, ye deaf; his praise, ye dumb,
your loosened tongues employ;
ye blind, behold your savior come,
and leap, ye lame, for joy.

7. In Christ, your head, you then shall know,
shall feel your sins forgiven;
anticipate your heaven below, 
and own that love is heaven.

UMH 57: O For a Thousand Tongues to Sing

Hymns and songs of praises are tools for spiritual worship and also a form of prayer. It is also a scriptural recommendation. Yes, God recommended singing songs or hymns in the Bible.

In both Ephesians 5:19 19 speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, and Colossians 3:16, "Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts." Paul preached about gathering believers and making songs of praise and singing of hymns.

These hymns are the collections of the united Methodist Church Hymnal book. They may be similar with the hymns in SS&S book or the Anglican Ancient and Modern Hymnal. But what make them different is the numbering and titles. Hymns are mostly searched according to title and the denominations.

 For example, You can find a hymn like Abide with me fast fall... as A&M 27 - Abide with me: fast falls the eventide in the Anglican hymn book number and also found in SS&S - ABIDE WITH ME, FAST FALLS THE EVEN-TIDE - SS&S 297.

UMH 57: O For a Thousand Tongues to Sing. Be richly blessed as you sing unto the Lord!
