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.

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
Tune: HALLELUJAH! WHAT A SAVIOR (Bliss)

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.

Lyrics: J. M. Neale
Tune: Westminster Abbey (Purcell)

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)

‘Tis So Sweet To Trust In Jesus

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


G                C        G                  
'Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus, 
                 A      D
Just to take him at his word;
G               C      G           
Just to rest up-on his promise, 
        C           D         G
Just to know, "Thus saith the Lord."

(chorus)
G             D                                
Jesus, Jesus, how I trust him! 
G                   A        A
How I've proved him o'er and o'er!
G             C        G             
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus! 
      C        D         G
O for grace to trust him more!

Oh, how sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to trust His cleansing blood;
And in simple faith to plunge me
’Neath the healing, cleansing flood!

Yes, ’tis sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just from sin and self to cease;
Just from Jesus simply taking
Life and rest, and joy and peace.

I’m so glad I learned to trust Thee,
Precious Jesus, Savior, Friend;
And I know that Thou art with me,
Wilt be with me to the end.

Jesus Calls Us

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

G     D                 G      
Jesus calls us o'er the tumult
       C                     G    
Of our life's wild, restless sea;
       A                   G         
Day by day his sweet voice soundeth,
        C                  G           
Saying, "Christian, follow me!"

As of old Saint Andrew heard it
By the Galilean lake,
Turned from home and toil and kindred,
Leaving all for Jesus’ sake.

Jesus calls us from the worship
Of the vain world’s golden store,
From each idol that would keep us,
Saying, “Christian, love Me more!”

In our joys and in our sorrows,
Days of toil and hours of ease,
Still He calls, in cares and pleasures,
“Christian, love Me more than these!”

Jesus calls us! By Thy mercies,
Savior may we hear Thy call,
Give our hearts to Thine obedience,
Serve and love Thee best of all.
