Begin, my tongue, some heavenly theme

Begin, my tongue, some heavenly theme,
awake, my voice, and sing
the mighty works or mightier name
of our eternal King.

Tell of his wondrous faithfulness,
and sound his power abroad;
sing the sweet promise of his grace,
the quickening word of God.

Proclaim salvation from the Lord
for wretched, dying men;
his hand has writ the sacred word
with an immortal pen.

His every word of grace is strong
as that which built the skies;
the voice that rolls the stars along
speaks all the promises.

Now shall my fainting heart rejoice
to know thy favor sure;
I trust the all-creating voice,
and faith desires no more.
