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.

Lyrics: Bonar

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)

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.

In The Garden

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

G
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.

(Refrain)
       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.

Refrain

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.

Refrain

O For a Thousand Tongues

Posted in 4 Chords, 5 Chords, Hymns, Key of G | 13 comments

G       Em       G       D  G
O for a thousand tongues to sing
   C                D
My great Redeemer’s praise,
   G         A        D
My great Re- deemer’s praise,
G           Em    C       D
The glories of my God and King,
    G               C
The triumphs of His grace!
    G               D
The triumphs of His grace!
    G                C            D      G
The triumphs of- The triumphs of- of His grace!

My gracious Master and my God,
Assist me to proclaim,
To spread through all the earth abroad
The honors of Thy name.

Jesus! the name that charms our fears,
That bids our sorrows cease;
’Tis music in the sinner’s ears,
’Tis life, and health, and peace.

He breaks the power of canceled sin,
He sets the prisoner free;
His blood can make the foulest clean,
His blood availed for me.

He speaks, and, listening to His voice,
New life the dead receive,
The mournful, broken hearts rejoice,
The humble poor believe.

Hear Him, ye deaf;
His praise, ye dumb,
Your loosened tongues employ;
Ye blind, behold your Savior come,
And leap, ye lame, for joy.
