Verse:
D                 A/C♯
  I have heard so many songs,
D/C              G/B
  Listened to a thousand  tongues,
      Em7               A7sus4     A7      Bm   A/C♯   G2
But  there is one that sounds above   them all.
D                        A/C♯
  The Father's song, the Father's love,
D/C                G/B         Em7
  You sung it over me and for eternity
      A7sus4   A7       D
It's written on     my heart.
Chorus part 1:
                 G/B    A/C♯
Heaven's perfect melody,
              D/F♯      G2
The Creator's symphony,
                Em7
You are singing over me
Asus4          Bm    A/C♯
  The Father's song.
Chorus part 2:
D/F♯              G      A/C♯
Heaven's perfect mystery,
                     D/F♯        G2
The King of love has sent for me,
                       Em7
And now You're singing over me
A7               D
The Father's song. 
Instrumental:
G/B     A/C     D   G2   Em7   A7sus4  A7   Bm   A/C  D/F
[To Chorus part 2:]
Coda:
D                         A/C♯
  The Father's song, the Father's love,
D/C                G/B          Em7
  You sung it over me and for eternity
     A7sus4    A7       D
It's written on     my heart. 

I have heard so many songs,
Listened to a thousand tongues,
But there is one that sounds above them all.
The Father's song, the Father's love,
You sung it over me and for eternity
It's written on my heart.

Heaven's perfect melody,
The Creator's symphony,
You are singing over me
The Father's song.
Heaven's perfect mystery,
The King of love has sent for me,
And now You're singing over me
The Father's song.
