G                           G/F♯               C2            G
    Our eyes have seen the wondrous cross that towers over time,
G                     G/F♯              C2          G
    Vast as the ocean grace and love, amazing so divine.
     D            Em7       C2              G
Oh, this is our story, and this our hymn of praise.
        D       Em7           C2
Through all generations the song remains the same.
    Chorus:
    G
        To the One who has loved us,
    G/F♯
        loved us and freed us,
       Em7
    To You belongs the praise,
             C2
    Through everlasting days we'll sing.
    G
        To the One who is worthy
    G/F♯
        Of honour and glory,
       Em7
    To You belongs the praise,
       C2                                     G(no3rd)
    To You belongs the hymn of the ages. [1.]
Verse 2:
G                            G/F♯           C2                G
    The King of love our Shepherd is, our shelter from the storm;
G                     G/F♯              C2           G
    A mighty fortress is His Name, and our eternal home.
    D         Em7         C2                    G
To God be the glory, how great the things He's done.
          D       Em7          C2
And with all generations, we join the joyful song.
Mid section:
  C2                                   G
A thousand tongues are not enough, but we don't sing alone.
       C2                                 G              D/F♯
1. Oh, how the heav'nly anthem drowns all music but it's own.  [Repeat]
    C2                                 G              Dsus4  D
Oh, how the heav'nly anthem drowns all music but it's own.  [Repeat]
    Coda: (with ad libs)
       C2                          G
    To You belongs the hymn of the ages. (Exploding through the ages.)
    The Hymn of the ages. (Ev'ry generation singing.)
    Is singing the hymn of the ages.

Our eyes have seen the wondrous cross  
That towers over time
Vast as the ocean grace and love
Amazing so divine
Oh this is our story
And this our hymn of praise
Through all generations
The song remains the same

To the One who has loved us
Loved us and freed us
To You belongs the praise
Through everlasting days we’ll sing
To the One who is worthy
Of honor and glory
To You belongs the praise
To You belongs the hymn of the ages

The King of love our Shepherd is
Our shelter from the storm
A mighty fortress is His Name
And our eternal home
To God be the glory
How great the things He’s done
With all generations
We join the joyful song

A thousand tongues are not enough
But we don’t sing alone
Oh how the heavenly anthem drowns
All music but it’s own
