Check out my hidden stash!

**Update May, 2013: The post below is several years old; I’ve since moved all of my Messianic music chords to my new site,, the best place to go for lyrics and guitar chords to Messianic music.

A few folks have recently asked me for my Messianic music chord sheets compiled over the years.

This is the stuff that is quite the labor of love: learn to play a song on the guitar, write it out with paper & pencil for trial and error, practice it on the guitar until perfect, type it all up in digital form, keep it organized, all that work.

Well, dear blog readers, you may now eat freely of the fruit of my labor:

Judah’s amazing, wonderful, flashy Messianic music guitar chords

Now technically speaking, not all the songs listed there are Messianic. There are chords for some old Christian favorites like Petra’s Take Me In, or I Exalt Thee, or Evangelical songs like Robin Mark’s Days of Elijah.

And there are chords to some traditional, non-Messianic Jewish songs, like Am Yisrael Chai, as well as chords for a few songs from various Jewish artists like Yosef Karduner and Shlomo Carlebach, and others.

I guess such is the life of a Messianic: savoring the good from both Christian and Jewish worlds.

But a vast majority of the music chords you find here is authentic Messianic: from classics like Lamb’s Yerushalayim Descending and Israel’s Hope – Oh Give Thanks, all the way to fresh stuff from Joel Chernoff, Meha Shamayim, Avner & Rachel Boskey, Paul Wilbur, Steve McConnell, and many others.

Nerd Notes

As it stands, the chords are mostly in .doc, .docx .rtf, and .pdf formats. That means you need Adobe Reader or Microsoft Office to open the documents. I’m considering migrating to plain old HTML files in the future. We’ll see.

Also, I’m still trying to transfer all of my chord sheets from paper to digital; not everything’s up there yet. As I progress in going all-digital, I’ll continually be updating the Messianic music guitar chords page with the new bits.



  1. Thanks for reminding me that I need to learn how to play my guitar. It's so forlorn and lonely sitting in the corner of my room.

  2. Well pick it up and start playin'! :-)

    Seriously though, and maybe it's just me, but I find a lot of joy and comfort in praising with the guitar and singing.

  3. I am sharing this with my good friend Elad. He's a guitar player and believer from Israel. He's really going to love this blog....thanks bro.
