Rock of Ages

 A             D        A
Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
        A      E       A
Let me hide myself in Thee;
        E             A
Let the water and the blood
         E                   A
From Thy wounded side which flowed,
      A        D      A
Be of sin the double cure;
           A         E       A
Save from wrath and make me pure.

Not the labors of my hands
Can fulfill Thy law's demands;
Could my zeal no respite know,
Could my tears forever flow,
All for sin could not atone;
Thou must save, and Thou alone.

Nothing in my hand I bring,
Simply to the cross I cling;
Naked, come to Thee for dress;
Helpless, look to Thee for grace;
Foul, I to the fountain fly;
Wash me, Savior, or I die.

While I draw this fleeting breath,
When mine eyes shall close in death,
When I soar to worlds unknown,
See Thee on Thy judgment throne,
Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee.

Just As I Am

Posted in 3 Chords, 3/4 Time, Hymns, Key of A | 15 comments

A                E       A 
Just as I am without one plea, 
    E         D        E        A 
but that Thy blood was shed for me; 
A                       D  
And that Thou biddst me come to Thee, 
   A              E       A 
Oh Lamb of God, I come, I come. 

Just as I am, and waiting not, 
To rid my soul of one dark blot, 
To Thee, whose blood can cleanse each spot, 
O Lamb of God I come, I come! 

Just as I am, tho' tossed about 
With many a conflict, many a doubt, 
Fightings within, and fears without, 
O Lamb of God I come, I come! 

Just as I am, Thou wilt receive, 
Wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve; 
Because Thy promise I believe, 
O Lamb of God I come, I come! 

Just as I am, Thy love unknown, 
Hath broken ev'ry barrier down; 
Now to be Thine, yea Thine alone, 
O Lamb of God I come, I come! 

Just as I am, of that free love, 
The breadth, length, depth, the height to prove, 
Here for a season then above, 
O Lamb of God I come, I come!

Silent night, Holy night

Silent night, holy night
E            A 
All is calm, All is bright 
D                 A 
Round yon Virgin, Mother and Child 
D              A 
Holy Infant so Tender and mild, 
E                 A 
Sleep in heavenly peace, 
A        E        A 
Sleep in heavenly peace. 

Silent night, holy night 
Shepherds quake at the sight, 
Glories stream from heaven afar, 
Heavenly hosts sing Alleleulia 
Christ the Saviour is born! 
Christ the saviour is born. 

Silent night, holy night 
Son of God, love's pure light 
Radiant beams from Thy holy face 
with the dawn of redeeming grace, 
Jesus Lord at thy birth, 
Jesus Lord at thy birth.

A                       D 
O Lord my God when I in awesome wonder 
         A                 E        A 
Consider all the works thy hand has made 
          D 
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder 
                    A            E          A
Your power through- out the uni- verse dis- played 

              A        D              A 
Then sings my soul, my saviour God to thee 
               E                   A 
How great thou art, how great thou art 
              A        D              A 
Then sings my soul, my saviour God to thee 
               E        D     E    A 
How great thou art, how great thou art 

When through the woods, and forest glades I wander, 
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees. 
When I look down, from lofty mountain grandeur 
And see the brook, and feel the gentle breeze. 

And when I think, that God, His Son not sparing; 
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in; 
That on the Cross, my burden gladly bearing, 
He bled and died to take away my sin. 

When Christ shall come, with shout of acclamation, 
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart. 
Then I shall bow, in humble adoration, 
And then proclaim: "My God, how great Thou art!"
