Verse 1:
C          Am        F    C
Jesus, the name high over all
           Am       Gsus4
In hell or earth or sky.
C          Am    F       C
Angels and men before it fall
    Dm7    Gsus4    Csus4   C
And devils fear and fly.
C          Am      F       C
Jesus, the name to sinners dear;
            Am      Gsus4
The name to sinners given.
C           Am        F      C
It scatters all their guilty fear
    Dm7         Gsus4     Csus4   C
And turns their hell to   heaven.
G/C         C           G/C       C
O, that the world might taste and see
     Fmaj7  F6     Gsus4   G
The riches  of His grace.
C           Am        F       C
The arms of love that compass me
      Dm7     Gsus4    Fmaj7   C   Fmaj7      
Would all the world embrace.       [to Verse 2]

Verse 2:
C          Am         F       C
Jesus, the prisoner's fetters breaks
            Am      Gsus4
And bruises satan's head.
C          Am           F        C
Power into strengthless souls it speaks,
    Dm7    Gsus4    Csus4   C
And life into the   dead.
G/C          C      G/C    C
Thee I shall constantly proclaim,
       Fmaj7     F6     Gsus4   G
Though earth and hell oppose;
C           Am      F        C
Bold to confess Thy glorious Name
  Dm7    Gsus4    Fmaj7    C    Fmaj7   
Before a world of foes          [to Verse 3]

Verse 3:
C        Am       F      C
His only righteousness I show;
           Am       Gsus4
His saving truth proclaim
C           Am       F      C
'Tis all my business here below
   Dm7    Gsus4    Csus4   C
To cry 'behold the Lamb.'
G/C       C       G/C    C
Happy, if with my latest breath,
  Fmaj7   F6       Gsus4   G
I may but gasp His name;
C             Am       F      C
Preach Him to all, and cry in death:
   Dm7     Gsus4    Fmaj7   C
'Behold, behold the Lamb!'
G/C       C       G/C    C
Happy, if with my latest breath,
  Fmaj7   F6       Gsus4   G
I may but gasp His name;
C             Am       F      C
Preach Him to all, and cry in death:
   Dm7     Gsus4    Fmaj7     Dm9   C   
'Behold, behold the Lamb!'
