O Could I Speak (HYMN)

O could I speak the matchless worth
O could I sound the glorious 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,
In notes almost divine.

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.
My soul shall ever shine.

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,
Make all His glories known.

Well 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 blest eternity I'll spend
Triumphant in His grace
Triumphant in His grace.

--Samuel Medley, Dr. Lowell Mason
