I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say

Posted in 4/4 Time, 5 Chords, Hymns, Key of G | 0 comments

  Em        C        G     D
I heard the voice of Jesus say,
      G    Am     D
“Come unto me and rest;
    C             G        D
lay down, O weary one, lay down
     G      Am    Em
your head upon my breast.”
  G             D    G
I came to Jesus as I was,
   G      C         D
so weary, worn, and sad;
  Em             G       D
I found in him a resting place,
    G      Am      Em
and he has made me glad.

I heard the voice of Jesus say,
“Behold, I freely give
the living water, thirsty one;
stoop down and drink and live.”
I came to Jesus, and I drank
of that life-giving stream;
my thirst was quenched, my soul revived,
and now I live in him.

I heard the voice of Jesus say,
“I am this dark world’s light;
look unto me, your morn shall rise,
and all your day be bright.”
I looked to Jesus, and I found
in him my star, my sun;
and in that light of life I’ll walk
till traveling days are done.

My Song Is Love Unknown

Posted in Easter hymns, Hymns, Key of D | 0 comments

   D       A      G
My song is love unknown,
   D        F#m     G
My Savior’s love to me;
     Em     F#m      Bm
Love to the loveless shown,
                E      A
That they might lovely be.
  C      Em      G      Bm
O who am I, that for my sake
   D                       A         D
My Lord should take, frail flesh and die?
Christ came from heaven's throne
Salvation to bestow;
But people scorned, and none
The longed-for Christ would know:
But O! my Friend, my Friend indeed,
Who at my need His life did spend.
Sometimes they strew His way,
And His sweet praises sing;
Resounding all the way
Hosannas to their King:
Then “Crucify!” is all their breath,
And for His death they thirst and cry.
They rise, and needs will have
My dear Lord made away;
A murderer they saved,
The Prince of life they slay,
Yet cheerful He to suffering goes,
That He His foes from thence might free.
Here might I stay and sing,
No story so divine;
Never was love, dear King!
Never was grief like Thine.
This is my Friend, in Whose sweet praise
I all my days could gladly spend.

Man of Sorrows

Posted in 4/4 Time, 5 Chords, Easter hymns, Hymns, Key of G | 0 comments

G              Em     B
Man of sorrows what a name
C       G      D
for the Son of God, who came
G              C
ruined sinners to reclaim:
     G D           C  G
Hallelujah, what a Savior!
Bearing shame and scoffing rude,
in my place condemned he stood,
sealed my pardon with his blood:
Hallelujah, what a Savior!
Guilty, helpless, lost were we;
blameless Lamb of God was he,
sacrificed to set us free:
Hallelujah, what a Savior!
He was lifted up to die;
"It is finished" was his cry;
now in heaven exalted high:
Hallelujah, what a Savior!
When he comes, our glorious King,
all his ransomed home to bring,
then anew this song we'll sing:
Hallelujah, what a Savior!

Lyrics: Bliss

Fairest Lord Jesus

D            Em D
Fairest Lord Jesus, 
D            Em D
ruler of all nature, 
D G       D       A
O thou of God and man the Son, 
D           Em
Thee will I cherish, 
Em          A
Thee will I honor, 
D                      A        D
thou, my soul's glory, joy, and crown.
Fair are the meadows, 
fairer still the woodlands, 
robed in the blooming garb of spring: 
Jesus is fairer, 
Jesus is purer 
who makes the woeful heart to sing.
Fair is the sunshine, 
fairer still the moonlight, 
and all the twinkling starry host: 
Jesus shines brighter, 
Jesus shines purer 
than all the angels heaven can boast.
Beautiful Savior! 
Lord of all the nations! 
Son of God and Son of Man! 
Glory and honor, 
praise, adoration, 
now and forevermore be thine.

Christ is Made the Sure Foundation

Posted in Hymns, Key of G | 0 comments

G                  C        D
Christ is made the sure foundation,
C          Em       A      D
Christ the Head and Corner-stone,
D             G         Em
Chosen of the Lord, and precious,
C       Am      B         Em
Binding all the Church in one,
E    A      D        G
Holy Sion's help for ever,
C       Am   D       G
And her confidence alone.
All that dedicated city,
Dearly loved of God on high,
In exultant jubilation
Pours perpetual melody;
God the One in Three adoring
In glad hymns eternally.
To this temple, where we call Thee,
Come, O Lord of Hosts, to-day;
With Thy wonted loving-kindness,
Hear Thy servants as they pray;
And Thy fullest benediction
Shed within its walls alway.
Here vouchsafe to all Thy servants
What they ask of Thee to gain,
What they gain from Thee, for ever
With the blessèd to retain,
And hereafter in Thy glory
Evermore with Thee to reign.
Praise and honour to the Father,
Praise and honour to the Son,
Praise and honour to the Spirit,
Ever Three, and ever One,
One in might, and one in glory,
While unending ages run.

All Things Bright And Beautiful

Posted in 4/4 Time, Hymns, Key of C | 0 comments


(refrain)
C          F          C    Am       
All things bright and beautiful, 
    G         D         G
all creatures great and small,
C          F        C     Am       
all things wise and wonderful, 
    C        G         C
the Lord God made them all.

(verse)
      G      D           G     
Each little flow'r that opens, 
      G       D        G
each little bird that sings,
   Am                 D   Em   
he made their glowing colors, 
   G          D    G
he made their tiny wings.

The purple-headed mountains,
The river running by,
The sunset and the morning
That brightens up the sky.

The cold wind in the winter,
The pleasant summer sun,
The ripe fruits in the garden,
He made them every one.

The tall trees in the greenwood,
The meadows where we play,
The rushes by the water,
To gather every day.

He gave us eyes to see them,
And lips that we might tell
How great is God Almighty,
Who has made all things well.

Onward Christian Soldiers

Posted in 4 Chords, Hymns, Key of G | 0 comments


G                  D                          G
On-ward, Christian sol-diers!  Marching as to war,
G                D      E      A     D
With the word of Je-sus Go-ing on be-fore,
D                  G                           C
Christ, the roy-al Mas-ter, Leads a-gainst the foe;
C                                       D
For-ward in-to bat-tle, See His banners go!

(Refrain)
G                   D                           G
On-ward, Chris-tian sol-diers!  March-ing as to war,
G        Am      G      C         D  G
With the word of Je-sus Go-ing on be-fore.


At the sign of triumph Satan's host doth flee; 
On then, Christian soldiers, on to victory! 
Hell's foundations quiver at the shout of praise; 
brothers, lift your voices, loud your anthems raise. 
(Refrain) 

Like a mighty army moves the church of God; 
brothers, we are treading where the saints have trod. 
We are not divided, all one body we, 
one in hope and doctrine, one in charity. 
(Refrain) 

Crowns and thrones may perish, kingdoms rise and wane, 
but the church of Jesus constant will remain.
Gates of hell can never gainst that church prevail; 
we have Christ's own promise, and that cannot fail. 
(Refrain) 

Onward then, ye people, join our happy throng, 
blend with ours your voices in the triumph song. 
Glory, laud, and honor unto Christ the King, 
this through countless ages men and angels sing.
(Refrain)
