1. O that I had an angel's tongue,
    That I might loudly sing
The wonders of redeeming love
    To Thee, my God and King!

2. Let the redeemed of the Lord
    Their thankful voices raise:
Can we be dumb while angels sing
    Our great Redeemer's praise ?

3. O sing aloud in boundless grace
    Which thus hath set us free;
Extol with songs, my saved soul,
    Thy Savior's love to Thee.

4. Give endless thanks to God, and say,
    What love was this in Thee,
That Thou hast not withheld Thy Son,
    Thine only Son from me?
