O Praise the Name

Verse 1:


I cast my mind to Calvary

             D                Em

Where Jesus bled and died for me

           C                    G   

I see His wounds His hands His feet

           D               G

My Saviour on that cursed tree

Verse 2:

His body bound and drenched in tears

They laid Him down in Joseph’s tomb

The entrance sealed by heavy stone

Messiah still and all alone


    G                     C        G

O praise the Name of the Lord our God

   Em                D

O praise His Name forevermore

    G/B                   C         Em

For endless days we will sing Your praise

    C       D        G   

Oh Lord oh Lord our God

Verse 3:

Then on the third at break of dawn

The Son of heaven rose again

O trampled death where is your sting?

The angels roar for Christ the King

Verse 4:

He shall return in robes of white

The blazing sun shall pierce the night

And I will rise among the saints

My gaze transfixed on Jesus’ face
