A voice from on high

*capo 1st fret

(chorus)
C
I hear a voice callin'
   F           C
it must be our Lord (it must be our Lord)
                          G
Its coming from heaven on high.
   C
I hear a voice callin'
      F       C
I've gained a reward ( I've gained a reward)
                       G          C
for the land where we never shall die.


                    F             C
The saviour who di..ed, on cruel calvary
                                                G
he shed his life blood that the world might be free.
                C               F      C
So follow his footsteps, up the narrow way.
                               G            C
and be ready to meet him when calls on that day.

(to chorus)

The saviour has paid a great price for me
He gave his life on calvary.
so follow his footsteps,up the narrow way.
that'll pay my debt on the great judgement day.

(to chorus)

And be ready to meet Him when He calls on that day


Chorus


He died on the cross, the old rugged cross 
That we would be saved from sin and not lost       
So I follow His footsteps up the narrow way 
That'll pay our debts on that Great Judgment Day
