Album: The Altar of Love

Starts on F#m- hold until the first verse

Verse 1:
Bm            D
Lay down your weapons
               F#m
Lay down your violence
Bm             D
Lay down rebellion
                  F#m
Your heart of defiance

Chorus 1:
E           Bm         F#m
  Love will ask of you more than truces
E           Bm         F#m
  If you're willing to lose
E            Bm            F#m                  E
Blessing far outweighs the loss when you lay it all
Bm                 F#m
   On the Altar of Love

Verse 2:
Bm            D
Lay down your idols
                    F#m
Lay down your possessions
Bm            D
Lay down your shrines and
                F#m
Your worldly obsessions

Chorus 2:
E           Bm         F#m
  Love will ask of you more than treasure
E             Bm         F#m
  When you're willing to trust
E            Bm            F#m                  E   Bm
Blessing far outweighs the loss when you lay it all
              E Bm                  D
  You lay it all   on the Altar of Love

Bridge:
D                  F#m
    In the holiest room
                           A
    Where the curtain was torn
                    E
    By the ultimate wound
                     Bm
    Oh, the Altar of Love
                     F#m
    Where the glory resides
                         A
    Where the Father and Son 
                     E
    And the Spirit invites


E                     D
    Oh, the Altar of Love
                       F#m
    To its form we are blind
                           A
    But you know when it's there
                              E
    Like the sun through shut eyes
                     Bm
    Oh, the Altar of Love
                          F#m
    Yes, you come here to die
                            A
    But you know that it's good 
                         E
    'Cause you come out alive
                  Bm    D
    You come out alive
    Bm      D
    Oh, oh, oh la da da

Instrumental:
Strummed and played just like the Choruses
E  Bm  F#m x3  then  E  Bm

Outro:
E           Bm         F#m
  Love will ask of you more than you can give
E             Bm         F#m
  When you're willing to live
E            Bm            F#m                   E  Bm
Blessing far outweighs the loss when you lay it all
           E  Bm
You lay it all
           E  Bm
You lay it all
                F#m
On the Altar of Love

F#m is played for the rest of the song.
