Lord I come, I confess

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#

Where sin runs deep, Your grace is more

And when I cannot stand I'll fall on You
E               F#        B
Jesus You're my hope and stay

And when I cannot stand I'll fall on You
E               F#        B
Jesus You're my hope and stay

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.
