256. C. M. S. Streeter. Blessings of the Gospel.
1 What glorious tidings do I hear
From my Redeemer's tongue!
I can no longer silence bear;
I'll burst into a song:
2 The blind receive their sight with joy;
The lame can walk abroad;
The dumb their loosened tongues employ;
The deaf can hear the word.
3 The dead are raised to life anew
By renovating grace;
The glorious gospel's preached to you,
The poor of Adam's race.
4 O wondrous type of things divine,
When Christ displays his love,
To raise from woe the sinking mind
To reign, in realms above!
