In The Garden

Posted in 3/4 Time, 5 Chords, Hymns | 0 comments

I come to the garden alone
          C                   G
While the dew is still on the roses
          D                  G     Em
And the voice I hear falling on my ear
    A              D
The Son of God discloses.

       G                     D
And He walks with me, and He talks with me,
       C                 G
And He tells me I am His own;
               D           C
And the joy we share as we tarry there,
G              D    G
None other has ever known.

He speaks, and the sound of His voice,
Is so sweet the birds hush their singing,
And the melody that He gave to me
Within my heart is ringing.


I’d stay in the garden with Him
Though the night around me be falling,
But He bids me go; through the voice of woe
His voice to me is calling.

Rock of Ages

Posted in 3 Chords, 3/4 Time, Easter hymns, Funeral hymns, Hymns, Key of A | 9 comments

 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.

Immortal, Invisible

Posted in 3/4 Time, 4 Chords, Hymns, Key of G, Wedding hymns | 2 comments

  C         D        G     D  G
Immortal, invisible, God only wise,
   C          D       G        D   G
In light inaccessible hid from our eyes,
      G            Em            G          D
Most blessed, most glorious, the Ancient of Days,
  Em         D            G          D  G
Almighty, victorious, Thy great name we praise.

Unresting, unhasting, and silent as light,
nor wanting, nor wasting, Thou rulest in might;
Thy justice like mountains high soaring above
Thy clouds, which are fountains of goodness and love.

To all, life Thou givest, to both great and small;
In all life Thou livest, the true Life of all;
We blossom and flourish as leaves on the tree;
And wither and perish, but naught changeth Thee.

Great Father of glory, pure Father of light,
Thine angels adore Thee, all veiling their sight;
All praise we would render:  O help us to see
'Tis only the splendor of light hideth Thee.

To God be the Glory

Posted in 3 Chords, 3/4 Time, Easter hymns, Hymns, Key of G, Wedding hymns | 11 comments

   G                       D              G 
To God be the glory, great things He hath done, 
   C            G             A           D 
So lov'd He the world that He gave us His Son, 
    G                   D             G 
Who yielded His life an atonement for sin, 
    C          G              D          G 
And opened the Life Gate that all may go in. 
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, 
G                      D 
Let the earth hear His voice; 
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, 
Let the people rejoice; 
Oh, come to the Father, 
        D         G 
Through Jesus the Son, 
    C            G 
And give Him the glory; 
      D              G 
Great things He hath done. 

Oh, perfect redemption, the purchase of blood, 
To ev'ry believer the promise of God; 
The vilest offender who truly believes, 
That moment from Jesus a pardon receieves. 

Great things He hath taught us, great things He hath done, 
And great our rejoicing through Jesus the Son; 
But purer, and higher, and greater will be 
Our wonder, our transport when Jesus we see.

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.
