O could I speak the matchless worth

1. O could I speak the matchless worth,
O could I sound the glories forth
which in my Savior shine!
I’d sing His glorious righteousness,
and magnify the wondrous grace
|:which made salvation mine. :|

2. I’d sing the precious blood He spilt,
My ransom from the dreadful guilt
of sin, and wrath divine;
I’d sing His glorious righteousness,
in which all perfect, heavenly dress
|:my soul shall ever shine. :|

3. I’d sing the characters He bears,
And all the forms of love He wears,
exalted on His throne;
In loftiest songs of sweetest praise,
I would to everlasting days
|:make all His glories known. :|

4. Soon, the delightful day will come
When my dear Lord will bring me home,
and I shall see His face;
Then with my Savior, Brother, Friend,
a blessed eternity I’ll spend,
|:triumphant in His grace. :|

*****alt verses ********

Oh could I speak the matchless worth,
Oh could I sound the glories forth,
Which in my Saviour shine!
I’d soar, and touch the heavenly strings
And vie with Gabriel while he sings
|:In notes almost divine.:|

Well, the delightful day will come,
When my dear Lord will take me home,
And I shall see His face.
Then with my Savior, Brother, Friend,
A blest eternity I’ll spend,
|:Triumphant in His grace.:|
