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)

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.

Lyrics: Unknown

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)

O Little Town of Bethlehem

Posted in 4 Chords, 5 Chords, Carols, Key of C | 0 comments












  C              F 
O little town of Bethlehem, 
    C        G        C
How still we see thee lie; 
 C                 F 
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep 
    C      G        C 
The silent stars go by. 
    C                    E 
Yet in the dark streets shineth 
    Am          E 
The everlasting light; 
    C                  F 
The hopes and fears of all the years 
    C      G      C 
Are met in thee tonight. 

For Christ is born of Mary; 
And gathered all above, 
While mortals sleep the angels keep 
Their watch of wond'ring love. 
O morning stars together 
Proclaim the holy birth; 
And praises sing to God the King, 
And peace to men on earth.

How silent, how silently 
The wondrous gift is giv'n! 
So God imparts to human hearts 
The blessings of His heav'n. 
No ear may hear His coming, 
But in this world of sin, 
Where meek souls will receive Him still, 
The dear Christ enters in.

O holy Child of Bethlehem, 
Descend to us, we pray; 
Cast out our sin and enter in, 
Be born in us today. 
We hear the Christmas angels 
The great glad tidings tell; 
O come to us, abide with us, 
Our Lord, Emmanuel.
