DO YOU KNOW JESUS?  - Lyrics by Bill McGinnis
 - Public Domain 


      G7       C Am  G7 C 
      Do  you  know  Je-sus? 


      (C)        Em  G7 C 
      Do  you  know  Je-sus? 


      (C)      Am    G7 C 
      Do  you  know  Je-sus, 


      (C)                Am       Dm G7 
      And  the  won-der  of  His  love? 


     (G7)      C Am  G7 C 
      Yes,  I  know  Je-sus! 


      (C)        Em  G7 C 
      Yes,  I  know  Je-sus! 


      (C)     Am    G7 C 
      Yes, I  know  Je-sus, 


      (C)       Dm       G7       C 
      And  the  won-der  of  His  love! 




The most important single thing you can do in your life is to establish a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, in which He is your personal Lord and Saviour, and you are His trusting follower. If you do this one thing, you will find joy and happiness now and forever. If you do not do this one thing, you will continue to deprive yourself of the many blessings God has intended for you to receive. If you have not yet accepted Jesus as your personal Lord and Saviour, you can do so now by clicking HERE =>Gateway To Jesus or HERE => Jesus Direct.

(1) ORIGINAL MIDI HYMNS, SONGS, AND ADAPTATIONS

This is the home for my original MIDI compositions and adaptations.

Most of these are optimized for General MIDI synthesizer, and arranged in four-part harmony with instrumentation suitable for choir and congregation. The style (for most of these) is simple and durable, trying to follow the example set by Lowell Mason, the great 19th century composer/arranger.

For some of these, there is a MIDI file, lyrics, and documentation, all compressed into one .ZIP file for each hymn. Also, the MIDI files and lyrics are available separately. Some also have the MIDI file encoded on the same page as the lyrics.

Here, then, are the MIDI files . . .

ZIP File Containing All The MIDI Files At This Site

But first, a chance to download all the MIDI files residing at this site, zipped into one file. NOTE: This file includes several songs not linked on this page. => http://www.patriot.net/users/bmcgin/bmcgmidi.zip

This is a plea from earlier Christians for a better life in heaven than they had here on earth. I selected the most powerful verses from this long text, and added new music of my own.

The English words are more than 400 years old, but they are as clear and plaintive as if they were written yesterday. The English words are based on the words of St. Augustine, another 1,200 years earlier.
