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.

Lyrics: Crossman

Fairest Lord Jesus

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

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.

O Shepherd Divine

Posted in 4/4 Time, Hymns, Key of D | 1 comment

O Shepherd divine, I know Thou art mine; 
    A                           D
Thy search in the night was for me.
This bleak world is cold, but warm is Thy fold; 
   A                  D 
My Shepherd, I follow Thee.
    G                      D
Thy beautiful lamp shineth bright o'er my way,
    E                   A  
Thy glorious light unto Thy per-fect day.
Thro' pastures serene, Thro' valleys of green, 
   A                  D
My Shepherd, I follow Thee.

O Shepherd divine, I know Thou art mine;
Thy great heart was broken for me.
Thy grace and Thy law I picture in awe;
They kissed upon Calvary.
Ah! Life that was given to ransom my soul,
Ah! Heart that was broken to make sinners whole, 
This world is but loss
In view of Thy cross,
My Shepherd, I follow Thee.

O Shepherd divine, I know Thou art mine;
I hear Thee say, “Follow thou Me.”
Thy message today illumines my way;
The Spirit of Prophecy.
I thrill at Thy marvellous love to Thy sheep,
The way Thou dost lead to the still waters deep,
One staff and one rod,
One fold and one God;
My Shepherd, I follow Thee.

Blessed Assurance

Posted in 4 Chords, Hymns, Key of D | 1 comment

A         D        G        D 
Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!
D         A            E       A 
Oh what a foretaste of glory divine!
A         D        G           D 
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
D           G       A             D 
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood.

A          D      G          D      
This is my story, this is my song, 
G           D        E           A
praising my Saviour, all the day long;
A          D      G          D                  
This is my story, this is my song, 
D           G        A           D
praising my Saviour, all the day long.

Visions of rapture now burst on my sight.
Perfect submission, perfect delight,
Angels descending, bring from above
Echoes of mercy, whispers of love.

Perfect submission, all is at rest,
I in my Saviour am happy and blest;
Watching and waiting, looking above,
Filled with His goodness, lost in His love.

Angels, from the realms of glory,
D                     A       D

Shepherds, in the fields abiding,
Watching o'er your flocks by night,
God with man is now residing
Yonder shines the infant light.

Sages, leave your contemplations,
Brighter visions beam afar;
Seek the great Desire of nations,
Ye have seen his natal star.

All creation, join in praising
God, the Father, Spirit, Son,
Evermore your voices raising
To the eternal Three in One.
