Thomas Tiplady

Default Presentation Order #V1 V2 E -
[V1]
          A                           D
 Above the hills of time the cross is gleaming  
            A                            Esus  E7
 Fair as the sun when night has turned to day ||
             A                           D
 And from it love's pure light is richly streaming 
               A          E7          A
 To cleanse the heart and banish sin away ||
              A        D                Amaj7
 To this dear cross the eyes of men are turning 
         F#m    D            Esus  E7
 Today as in the ages lost to sight ||
            A        D                       Amaj7
 And so for Thee, O Christ, Men's hearts are yearning
                A               D     E7   A
 As shipwrecked seamen yearn for morn-ing light
 
  
[V2]
              A                           D
 The cross, O Christ, Thy wondrous love revealing
            A                          Esus  E7
 Awakes our hearts as with the light of morn ||
            A                        D
 And pardon o'er our sinful spirits stealing 
               A          E7            A
 Tells us that we, In Thee, have been reborn ||
            A         D                 Amaj7
 Like echoes to sweet temple bells replying
              F#m        D             Esus  E7
 Our hearts, O Lord, make answer to Thy love ||
             A         D             Amaj7
 And we will love Thee with a love undy-ing
              A              D   E7   A
 Till we are gathered to Thy home a-bove
 
 
[E]
            A         D                 Amaj7
 Like echoes to sweet temple bells replying
              F#m        D             Esus  E7
 Our hearts, O Lord, make answer to Thy love ||
             A         D             Amaj7
 And we will love Thee with a love undy-ing
              F#/A           D   E7   A
 Till we are gathered to Thy home a-bove
