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!'

Jesus the name high over all
In hell or earth or sky
Angels and men before it fall
And devils fear and fly

Jesus the name to sinners dear
The name to sinners given
It scatters all their guilty fear
And turns their hell to heaven

O that the world might taste and see
The riches of His grace
The arms of love that compass me
Would all the world embrace

Jesus the prisoner's fetters breaks
And bruises satan's head
Power into strengthless souls it speaks
And life into the dead

Thee I shall constantly proclaim
Though earth and hell oppose
Bold to confess Thy glorious Name
Before a world of foes

His only righteouness I show
His saving truth proclaim
Tis all my business here below
To cry behold the Lamb

Happy if with my latest breath
I may but gasp His name
Preach Him to all and cry in death
Behold behold the Lamb
