VERSE 1

G      D7     G            D              G 
To God be the glory, great things He hath done,

   C            G             A7          D 
So loved He the world that He gave us His Son,

D7  G    D7     G        D            G 
Who yielded His life an atonement for sin,

G7  C Am       G    D    G            D7 G 
And opened the life-gate that all may go in.

Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,

        G     D    G   D 
Let the earth hear His voice!

           D7 
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,

        G      D7 G 
Let the people rejoice!

D7 G    D7     G              D         G  
O  come to the Father through Jesus the Son,

G7  C    Am      G  D   G               D7   G 
And give Him the glory, great things He hath done.

VERSE 2

G    D7     G             D           G 
O perfect redemption, the purchase of blood,

   C       G          A7         D 
To every believer the promise of God;

D7  G  D7    G          D       G 
The vilest offender who truly believes,

G7   C Am        G D   G        D7 G 
That moment from Jesus a pardon receives.

Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,

        G     D    G   D 
Let the earth hear His voice!

           D7 
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,

        G      D7 G 
Let the people rejoice!

O  come to the Father through Jesus the Son,

And give Him the glory, great things He hath done.

VERSE 3

G            D7 G                     D              G 
Great things He hath taught us, great things He hath done,

    C           G               A7        D 
And great our rejoicing through Jesus the Son;

D7  G  D7      G           D            G 
But purer, and higher, and greater will be

G7  C  Am      G    D     G          D7 G 
Our wonder our transport, when Jesus we see.

Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,

        G     D    G   D 
Let the earth hear His voice!

           D7 
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,

        G      D7 G 
Let the people rejoice!

D7 G    D7     G              D         G  
O  come to the Father through Jesus the Son,

G7  C    Am      G  D   G               D7   G 
And give Him the glory, great things He hath done.
