O Could I Speak the Matchless Worth

Melody - "Ariel," Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791), arr. Lowell Mason, 1836

Samuel Medley, 1789

O could I speak the matchless worth,
O could I sound the glories forth
Which in my Saviour 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 Saviour, Brother, Friend,
A blessed eternity I'll spend,
|: Triumphant in His grace. :|
