M. C. Day

TEN thousand thanks to Jesus,

Whose life our ransom paid,

Whose blood a full atonement

For all the world has made:

Let every heart adore Him;

Let every creature sing

Ten thousand thanks to Jesus,

Our Saviour and our King.

Ten thousand thanks, ten thousand thanks,

We’ll praise Him o’er and o’er;

And for the life with Him to live,

Ten thousand thousand more.


Ten thousand hearts to Jesus

How gladly would we give;

Ten thousand lives to Jesus,

Had we so long to live:

Ten thousand tongues shall praise Him,

Ten thousand songs ascend

To Him, our blest Redeemer,

To Him, our dearest Friend.


Ten thousand thanks to Jesus

For blessings every hour;

Ten thousand times ten thousand,

For love’s redeeming power:

And when we hear His welcome

Beyond the rolling sea,

His love through endless ages

Our sweetest song shall be.
