"O For A Thousand Tongues

"O, 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 thro' all the earth abroad, the honors of Thy name.

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 prisoner free;
His blood can make the foulest clean; His blood availed for me.

Hear Him, ye dear; His praise, ye dumb, Your loosened tongues employ;
Ye blind, behold your Savior come; and leap, ye lame, for joy."

Charles Wesley

May the blessing of His presence fill your hearts and homes with love this Thanksgiving Day.

His blood availed for me. (And in a whisper, for me.) Can you believe it?

Blessings to you, Linda.

Oh, thank you, Linda, for printing those lyrics here. So beautiful. I pray your Thanksgiving is a feast of love (and maybe pie?). I'm sending some along to put on the table tomorrow. :)
