Words to Hymns #188 & #493 (The Hymnal 1982)
The Hymnal 1982 - #188 Love’s redeeming work is done

1 Love’s redeeming work is done,
fought the fight, the battle won.
Death in vain forbids him rise;
Christ has opened paradise.
Alleluia!
2 Lives again our glorious King;
where, O death, is now thy sting?  
Once he died our souls to save,
where thy victory, O grave?
Alleluia!
3 Soar we now where Christ has led,
following our exalted Head;
made like him, like him we rise,
ours the cross, the grave, the skies.
Alleluia!

The Hymnal 1982 - #493 O for a thousand tongues to sing

1 O for a thousand tongues to sing
my dear Redeemer’s praise,
the glories of my God and King,
the triumphs of his grace!
2 My gracious Master and my God,
assist me to proclaim
and spread through all the earth
abroad the honors of thy Name.
3 Jesus! the Name that charms our fears
and bids our sorrows cease;
’tis music in the sinner’s ears,
’tis life and health and peace.
4 He speaks; and, listening to his voice,
new life the dead receive,
the mournful broken hearts rejoice,
the humble poor believe.
5 Hear him, ye deaf; ye voiceless ones,
your loosened tongues employ;
ye blind, behold, your Savior comes;
and leap, ye lame, for joy!
6 Glory to God and praise and love
be now and ever given
by saints below and saints above,
the Church in earth and heaven.
