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

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.

All Things Bright And Beautiful

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

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.

      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.

Just a closer walk with Thee

Posted in 4/4 Time, Hymns, Key of C, Wedding hymns | 1 comment

C                       G
I am weak, but Thou art strong;
Jesus, keep me from all wrong;
I’ll be satisfied as long
     C            G             C
As I walk, let me walk close to Thee.

Just a closer walk with Thee,
Grant it, Jesus, is my plea,
Daily walking close to Thee,
       C        G            C
Let it be, dear Lord, let it be.

Through this world of toil and snares,
If I falter, Lord, who cares?
Who with me my burden shares?
None but Thee, dear Lord, none but Thee.


When my feeble life is o’er,
Time for me will be no more;
Guide me gently, safely o’er
To Thy kingdom shore, to Thy shore.
