My great Redeemerís praise,
The glories of my God and King,
The triumphs of His grace.

Oh Christians, praise Him,
Methinks I hear the gospel sounding
For more volunteers.

Jesus, the name that calms my fears,
That bids my sorrow cease;
íTis music in the sinnerís ears;
íTis life and health and peace.

Assist me to proclaim,
To spread through all the earth abroad
The honors of Thy name.
