Begin, My Tongue, Some Heavenly Theme
Franz Joseph Haydn
A. H. M.
MANOAH C. M.
Henry W. Greatorex's Collection, 1851
The American Lutheran Hymnal gives the composer as "Ad. from Gioachimo Rossini, 1792 - 1868"
Begin, my tongue, some heav'nly theme
And speak some boundless thing;
The mighty works or mightier name
Of our eternal King.
Tell of His wondrous faithfulness
And sound His pow'r abroad;
Sing the sweet promise of His grace,
The love and truth of God
His very word of grace is strong
As that which built the skies;
The Voice that rolls the stars along
Speaks all the promises.
O might I hear the heav'nly Tongue
But whisper, "Thou art mine!"
Those gentle words shall raise my song
To notes almost divine.
