Jesus Messiah 

Capo 4
Key of B

He became sin 
Who knew no sin 
G/B                  C2     
That we might become His Righteousness 
G                     Am7
He humbled himself and carried the cross 

G/B       C2
Love so amazing 
  D       C2
Love so amazing 

Jesus Messiah 
Name above all names 
Blessed Redeemer
The rescue for sinners 
The ransom from Heaven 
      G/B     D
Jesus Messiah 
Lord of all 

His body the bread 
His blood the wine 
Broken and poured out all for love 
The whole earth trembled 
And the veil was torn 

Am7                G/B
All our hope is in You 
C2                  D
All our hope is in You 
Am7              G/B
All the glory to You, God 
C2                D
The light of the world 

(Repeat Chorus)

Only one small correction I believe:

On the 2nd line of the pre-chorus, it's an Em instead of D on the second 'love'.

An improvement over version 2.

I have a friend at Vineyard that explained "the Vineyard chord progression" used in this song. It's amazingly simple.

G, C2, Am7(actually, A7sus4), and Dsus are all done with your 4th and 3rd fingers continuously parked on the 3rd fret of the e and b strings, respectively. Your first and second fingers are the only ones that move. The 4th finger raises only occasionally for a D. There's a youtube video for "God of Wonders" (which has the same chords) that instructs this.

Chris sings a "D" in the 2nd "love" of the chorus. I suspect rockstar_not hears the G in a Dsus, rather than the G that makes Em. Just a guess. Try "love" with a Dsus. So all those "D"s - they could be a Dsus, or Dsus-to-D instead. Try them both ways and play what sounds right to you.

Finally, the G in the chorus starts on MessIah, ReDEEmer, and SINners. At least that's how we just practiced it for Sunday.
