Just a closer walk with Thee

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.

D                     G       D 
And did those feet in ancient time 
G         D         Em        G 
walk upon England's mountains green? 
    D            A       D 
And was the Holy Lamb of God 
   A         D            E    A 
on England's pleasant pastures seen? 

    A       Em     Am   Em 
And did the countenance divine 
               G     C       G 
shine forth upon our clouded hills? 
        Em             A  D 
And was Jerusalem builded here 
      G     D    G       D 
among these dark satanic mills 

Bring me my bow of burning gold! 
Bring me my arrows of de-sire! 
Bring me my spear! O Clouds unfold! 
Bring me my chariot of fire! 

I will not cease from mental fight, 
nor shall my sword sleep in my hand, 
'til we have built Jerusalem 
in England's green and pleasant land!

Guide me O Thou great Jehovah

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

G                Em 
Guide me, O Thou great Jehovah, 
G       C            G  D   G 
Pilgrim through this barren land. 
G              Em 
I am weak, but Thou art mighty; 
G       C        G    D   G 
Hold me with Thy powerful hand. 
D                G 
Bread of Heaven, Bread of Heaven, 
Em                     D 
Feed me till I want no more; 
G       C      G    D  G 
Feed me till I want no more. 

Open now the crystal fountain, 
Whence the healing stream doth flow; 
Let the fire and cloudy pillar 
Lead me all my journey through. 
Strong Deliverer, strong Deliverer, 
Be Thou still my Strength and Shield; 
Be Thou still my Strength and Shield. 

Lord, I trust Thy mighty power, 
Wondrous are Thy works of old; 
Thou deliver’st Thine from thralldom, 
Who for naught themselves had sold: 
Thou didst conquer, Thou didst conquer,
 Sin, and Satan and the grave, 
Sin, and Satan and the grave. 

When I tread the verge of Jordan, 
Bid my anxious fears subside; 
Death of deaths, and hell’s destruction, 
Land me safe on Canaan’s side. 
Songs of praises, songs of praises, 
I will ever give to Thee; I will ever give to Thee. 

Musing on my habitation, 
Musing on my heav’nly home, 
Fills my soul with holy longings: 
Come, my Jesus, quickly come; 
Vanity is all I see; Lord, 
I long to be with Thee!
 Lord, I long to be with 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.

I Cannot Tell

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

         C                       F
I cannot tell why He whom angels worship,

               C                     G
Should set His love upon the sons of men,

             C                         F
Or why, as Shepherd, He should seek the wanderers,

              C          G               C     G
To bring them back, they know not how or when.

           C          Am             G       Em
But this I know, that He was born of Mary

                 Am     F            G
When Bethlehem’s manger was His only home,

            C        F            C        Am
And that He lived at Nazareth and labored,

           C              G               C
And so the Savior, Savior of the world is come.
