Verse 1:
G                C         G
O for a heart to praise my God,
  C          Am7     Dsus4  D  Dsus2  D
A heart from sin set free,
  C          G/B    C         Am7b5
A heart that always feels Thy blood
   G      D7       G
So freely shed for me.
Verse 2:
G                    C        G
A heart resigned, submissive, meek,
   C       Am7      Dsus4  D  Dsus2  D
My great Redeemer's throne,
      C    G/B       C        Am7b5
Where only Christ is heard to speak,
      G     D7       G
Where Jesus reigns alone.
Chorus:
  G/B     C      Am7      Dsus4  D
A humble, lowly, contrite heart,
  G/B      C        Dsus4  D  Dsus2  D
Believing, true and clean,
      C       G/B      Am7       Cm
Which neither life nor death can part
     G          D7         G
From Christ who dwells within.
Verse 3:
G                C         G
A heart in every thought renewed
    C       Am7    Dsus4  D  Dsus2 D
And full of love divine,
   C        G/B       C        Am7b5
Perfect and right and pure and good,
  G     D7       G
A copy, Lord, of Thine.
Verse 4:
G              C     G
Thy nature, gracious Lord, impart;
     C       Am7   Dsus4  D  Dsus2  D
Come quickly from above;
      C       G/B   C      Am7b5
Write Thy new name upon my heart,
    G         D7      G
Thy new, best name of Love.
       C      G/B   C      Am7b5
Write Thy new name upon my heart,
    G         D7      G
Thy new, best name of Love.

O for a heart to praise my God
A heart from sin set free
A heart that always feels Thy blood
So freely shed for me

A heart resigned submissive meek
My great Redeemer's throne
Where only Christ is heard to speak
Where Jesus reigns alone
 
A humble lowly contrite heart
Believing true and clean
Which neither life nor death can part
From Christ who dwells within
 
A heart in every thought renewed
And full of love divine
Perfect and right and pure and good
A copy Lord of Thine
 
Thy nature gracious Lord impart
Come quickly from above
Write Thy new name upon my heart
Thy new best name of Love
 
Charles Wesley (1707-1788)
