Lyrics for ‘Amazing Grace’

[Version from John Newton, pub. 1779 v. 7]

1. Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found;
Was blind, but now I see.

2. ’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed.

3. Through many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
’Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.

4. The Lord has promised good to me,
his word my hope secures;
he will my shield and portion be,
as long as life endures

5. Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
and mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess, within the veil,
a life of joy and peace.

6. The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, who called me here below,
Will be forever mine.

7. When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
Bright shining as the sun,
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we’d first begun.

[Version 2]

1. Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found;
Was blind, but now I see.

2. ’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed.

3. Through many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
’Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.

4. When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
Bright shining as the sun,
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we’d first begun.

Doctor Foster | Lyrics, Free Guitar Sheet Music, and Video (Mother Goose)

Doctor Foster is an English nursery rhyme which dates back to the nineteenth century England. Its first recorded version was in 1810 in Gamer Gurton’s Garland. It was then followed by a modern version of the tune which was published in 1844. The Real Mother Goose published their version of the rhyme in 1916 and had Blanche Fisher Wright as its illustrator.

The song proved to be interesting as several theories have been presented regarding the story behind it. One of them states that it is about an event in English history that occurred during the Plantagenet monarchy. It suggests that the rhyme may have been based on King Edward I and the time when he visited Gloucester. He fell from his horse down into a puddle, which happened in front of many people. This greatly embarrassed the king back then and resulted to him never going back there again due to humiliation.

The second theory is that the rhyme was about a play titled Doctor Faustus, an Elizabethan tragedy written by Christian Marlowe. The play was about the protagonist being called Doctor Fauster because he caused a person to fall in the river when the horse, whom he conjured from a straw, reverted back to its original form while passing through a river. Of the theories circulating around the rhyme, one of them presents a moral lesson for its listeners to follow. It is that when you think that something is shallow does not mean that you would still not proceed with caution as you would end up being in a deeper puddle than you had assumed, which might lead to your demise.

Lyrics for ‘Doctor Foster’

Doctor Foster went to Gloucester,
In a shower of rain;
He stepped in a puddle,
Right up to his middle,
And never went there again.

Oh! Susanna | Free Piano Sheet Music, Lyrics, Guitar Chords, Video

First published in 1848 by Stephen Foster, the song Oh Susanna is considered one of the most well-known American songs of all time. It is even part of the Top 100 Western songs throughout history. Its popularity back in the day led Foster to become the country’s first fully professional songwriter.

The lyrics of the song create a silly imagery and have been changed several times over the years, but the melody has remained relatively the same. It is assumed that the “Susanna” Foster was referring to was his sister Charlotte who had Susannah as her middle name.

Lyrics for ‘Oh! Susanna’

I came from Alabama
With my banjo on my knee,
I’m goin’ to Louisiana
My true love for to see;
It rained all night the day I left,
The weather it was dry;
The sun so hot I froze to death;
Susanna, don’t you cry.

O, Susanna,
O, don’t you cry for me,
I’ve come from Alabama
With my banjo on my knee.
O, Susanna,
O, don’t you cry for me,
‘Cause I’m goin’ to Louisiana,
My true love for to see.

I had a dream the other night
When ev’rything was still;
I thought I saw Susanna
A-comin’ down the hill;
The buckwheat cake was in her mouth,
The tear was in her eye;
Says I, I’m comin’ from the south,
Susanna, don’t you cry.

O, Susanna,
O, don’t you cry for me,
I’ve come from Alabama
With my banjo on my knee.
O, Susanna,
O, don’t you cry for me,
‘Cause I’m goin’ to Louisiana,
My true love for to see.

I soon will be in New Orleans,
And then I’ll look around,
And when I find Susanna
I’ll fall upon the ground.
And if I do not find her,
Then I will surely die,
And when I’m dead and buried,
Susanna, don’t you cry.

O, Susanna,
O, don’t you cry for me,
I’ve come from Alabama
With my banjo on my knee.
O, Susanna,
O, don’t you cry for me,
‘Cause I’m goin’ to Louisiana,
My true love for to see.

Lyrics for ‘Gesu Bambino’

When blossoms flowered ‘mid the snows
Upon a winter night,
Was born the Child, the Christmas Rose,
The King of Love and Light.

The angels sang, the shepherds sang,
The grateful earth rejoiced;
And at His blessed birth the stars
Their exultation voiced.

O come let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.

Again the heart with rapture glows
To greet the holy night,
That gave the world its Christmas Rose,
Its King of Love and Light.

Let ev’ry voice acclaim His name,
The grateful chorus swell.
From paradise to earth He came
That we with Him might dwell.

O come let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.

There was a funny little man who had a funny name
And he was very proud of it ’cause no-one else’s was the same
And then one day he left his town to strike out on his own
And met a total stranger a thousand miles from home,

His name is my name, too!
Whenever we go out,
The people always shout
There goes John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt!
Da da da da da da da

Lyrics for ‘Take Me Out to the Ball Game’

Nelly Kelly loved baseball games,
Knew the players, knew all their names.
You could see her there ev’ry day,
Shout “Hurray”
When they’d play.
Her boyfriend by the name of Joe
Said, “To Coney Isle, dear, let’s go”,
Then Nelly started to fret and pout,
And to him, I heard her shout:

Chorus
Take me out to the ball game,
Take me out with the crowd;
Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jacks,
I don’t care if I never get back.
Let me root, root, root for the home team,
If they don’t win, it’s a shame.
For it’s one, two, three strikes, you’re out,
At the old ball game.
