D                A         D
Angels, from the realms of glory,
D                     A       D
Wing your flight o'er all the earth;
D               A       D
Ye, who sang creation's story,
D            A         D
Now proclaim Messiah s birth.

CHORUS:
D      G     D        A
Come.............. and worship!
D                  A   
Worship Christ the newborn King!
D      G     D        A
Come.............. and worship!
D                  G   A    D
Worship Christ the new-born King!

Shepherds, in the fields abiding,
Watching o'er your flocks by night,
God with man is now residing
Yonder shines the infant light.

Sages, leave your contemplations,
Brighter visions beam afar;
Seek the great Desire of nations,
Ye have seen his natal star.

All creation, join in praising
God, the Father, Spirit, Son,
Evermore your voices raising
To the eternal Three in One.

How Sweet the Name of Jesus Sounds

Posted in 3 Chords, 4/4 Time, Hymns, Key of D | 2 comments

    C         F       G     C
How sweet the Name of Jesus sounds
   Dm    F       G
In a believer’s ear!
   F           Am       G         C     
It soothes his sorrows, heals his wounds,
    Am       G      C
And drives away his fear.

It makes the wounded spirit whole,
And calms the troubled breast;
’Tis manna to the hungry soul,
And to the weary, rest.

Dear Name, the Rock on which I build,
My Shield and Hiding Place,
My never failing treasury, filled
With boundless stores of grace!

By Thee my prayers acceptance gain,
Although with sin defiled;
Satan accuses me in vain,
And I am owned a child.

Jesus! my Shepherd, Husband, Friend,
O Prophet, Priest and King,
My Lord, my Life, my Way, my End,
Accept the praise I bring.

Weak is the effort of my heart,
And cold my warmest thought;
But when I see Thee as Thou art,
I’ll praise Thee as I ought.

Till then I would Thy love proclaim
With every fleeting breath,
And may the music of Thy Name
Refresh my soul in death!

Lyrics: Newton
Tune: ST. PETER (Reinagle)

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.

To God be the Glory

   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. 
chorus: 
G 
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, 
G                      D 
Let the earth hear His voice; 
D 
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, 
                 G 
Let the people rejoice; 
G 
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. 
(chorus) 

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. 
(chorus)

What a Friend we have in Jesus

Posted in 3 Chords, 4/4 Time, Hymns, Key of D | 20 comments


D                        G
What a friend we have in Jesus,
D                           A
All ours sins and griefs to bear,
D                   G
What a privilege to carry
A                    D
Everything to God in prayer!
A                     D
O what peace we often forfeit,
G      D                A
O what needless pain we bear,
D                     G
All because we do not carry
A                    D
Everything to God in prayer!


Have we trials and temptations?
Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged;
Take it to the Lord in prayer.
Can we find a friend so faithful
Who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows our every weakness;
Take it to the Lord in prayer.


Are we weak and heavy laden,
Cumbered with a load of care?
Precious Saviour still our refuge;
Take it to the Lord in prayer.
Do thy friends despise forsake thee?
Take it to the Lord in prayer!
In His arms He·ll take and shield thee;
Thou wilt find a solace there.

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!
