Key of B, transpose down 2 full steps and use Capo 4 if so desired.
This version has a corrected Chorus, Because all the others out there are incorrect. 
This song is Beautiful.

Verse 1:
       B     E     B
Lord I come, I confess
F#/A#   G#m      F#      E
Bowing here I find my rest

Without You I fall apart

You're the one that guides my heart

        B         E    B    F#/A#
Lord, I need You, oh I need You
G#m    E      B       F#
Every hour I need You
  B/D#  E        B           E
My one defense, my righteousness

Where sin runs deep, Your grace is more

This song is not "by" Chris Tomlin. He performs it but it is written by a group of worship artsts for Passion 2011. Chris Tomlin has a lot of good songs out, but like any worship leader he does a lot of other worship leaders songs. Michael W. Smith started doing a lot of other artists songs and people started giving him the credit for coming up with them also. Please give credit where credit is due.

Another thing I noticed about your intrepretation of this song is the Ab's and Bb's. Although they are enharmonic to G# and A#, this song is in the key of B, which has five sharps. The natural chord progression doesn't contain three sharps and two flats. Stay true to the key.
