X037 Ndiph' iilwimi zokumbonga

Ndiph' ilwimi zokumbonga,
8.6.8.6

Ndiph' ilwimi zokumbonga,
UmKhululi wami;
Ndibalise ngobungcwele,
BoKumkani wami.
---
 O for a thousand tongues to sing
my great Redeemer's praise,
the glories of my God and King,
the triumphs of his grace!

NKosi yam uz' undincede,
Ndikushumayele;
Bath' abemi balo mhlaba,
Bonke ndibatyele.
---
My gracious Master and my God,
assist me to proclaim,
to spread thro' all the earth abroad
the honors of your name.

Yesu eligama laKho,
Liya thuthuzela;
Liphilisa intliziyo,
Ibe nokuzola.
---
Jesus! the name that charms our fears,
that bids our sorrows cease,
'tis music in the sinner's ears,
'tis life and health and peace.

Yesu qob' amandl' esono
Kuy' obanjiweyo;
Lith' igazi licokise,
Low' ungcolileyo.
---
He breaks the power of cancelled sin,
he sets the prisoner free;
his blood can make the foulest clean;
his blood availed for me.

Thetha kuve ofileyo,
Amkelisw' amandla;
Abe nokhedamileyo,
UkwesaKh' isandla.
---
He speaks, and, listening to His voice,
New life the dead receive,
The mournful, broken hearts rejoice,
The humble poor believe.

Zonk' izizwe mazi jonge
KuY' uThixo wazo;
Zisindiswe zigwetyelwe,
Ngokukholwa kwazo.
---
Look unto Him, ye nations, own
Your God, ye fallen race;
Look, and be saved through faith alone,
Be justified by grace.

Zonk' iinkohlakalo zomntu,
Zathwalisw' imVana;
Wabingelwa lonk' uluntu,
OkaThix' uNyana.
---
See all your sins on Jesus laid:
The Lamb of God was slain,
His soul was once an offering made
For every soul of man.
