Oh, Could I Speak the Matchless Worth

Hymn by Samuel Medley (1738-1799) | Tune arranged by Lowell Mason

  1. Oh, could I speak the matchless worth,
    Oh, could I sound the glories forth
    Which in my Savior shine,
    I’d soar, and touch the heav’nly strings,
    And vie with Gabriel while he sings
    In notes almost divine,
    In notes almost divine.
  1. 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, heav’nly dress
    My soul shall ever shine,
    My soul shall ever shine.
  1. 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.
  1. Soon, the delightful day will come
    When my dear Lord will bring me home,
    And I shall see His face;
    Then with my Savior, Brother, Friend,
    A blest eternity I’ll spend,
    Triumphant in His grace,
    Triumphant in His grace.
