Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow;


Praise Him, all creatures here below;


Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;

                            C          D       G

Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.


G                            C                

I am resolved no longer to linger,

  G                                       D       

charmed by the worlds delight.

      G                                C                         

Things that are higher, things that are nobler,   G                 D            G  these have allured my sight.


       G        C            

     I will hasten to Him,

       G                              D    

     hasten so glad and free.

        G         C

     Jesus, greatest, highest       G         D         G      I will come to Thee.


    G                                     C

On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross,

        D                                     G

The emblem of suffering and shame;

              G                                           C

And I love that old cross where the dearest and best

                 D                              G

For a world of lost sinners was slain.


            D                            G

So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross,

             C                           G

Till my trophies at last I lay down;

           G                            C

I will cling to the old rugged cross,

          G                     D               G

And exchange it some day for a crown.
