Intro:
Em D G A C D G B
Em D G A C D G B

Verse 1:
Em  D         G          A       C        D       G   B
  I have been scarred so deep by life and cold despair,
Em    D       G          A      C     D      G
  and brittle bones were broken far beyond repair.

Prechorus 1:
Em      D      G       A     C           D       G   B
I have leveled lies so deep, the truth may never find.
Em      D     G         A        C                  D
And inside my faithless heart, I stole things never mine.

Chorus:
Em  D     G      A       C     D        G   B
 If mercy falls upon the broken and the poor,
Em    D       G      A        C        D       G
 Dear Father, I will see you, there on distant shores.

Intro:
Em D G A C D G B
Em D G A C D G B

Verse 2:
Em       D          G         A         C    D        G   B  
  I have toiled for countless years and ever felt the cost,
Em            D         G            A    
and I've been burned by this world's cold, 
     C        D         G
like leaves beneath the frost.

Prechorus 2:
Em     D         G          A   C         D      G   B
On my knees I've crawled to You, bleeding myself dry.
Em      D        G       A          C            D
But the price of life is more, than I could ever buy.

Chorus:
Em  D     G      A       C     D        G   B
 If mercy falls upon the broken and the poor,
Em    D       G      A        C        D       G
 Dear Father, I will see you, there on distant shores.

    Em
And off of the blocks,
      D 
I was headstrong and proud,
       C                         B
at the front of the line for the card-carrying, highbrowed.
     Em
With both eyes fastened tight,
     D
yet unscarred from the fight.
 C                       B
Running at full tilt, my sword pulled from its hilt.

Em                                   D
It's funny how these things can slip away,
          C                             B
our frail deeds, the last will wave good-bye.
      Em                             D
It's funny how the hope will bleed away,
         C                      B
the citadels we build and fortify. Good-Bye.

Em
Night came and I broke my stride,
   D
I swallowed hard, but never cried.
     Em
When grace was easy to forget,
 D
I'd denounce the hypocrites,
 C                    D
casting first stones, killing my own.
Em
You would unscale my blind eyes,
    D
and I stood battered, but more wise,
Em
fighting to accelerate,
D
shaking free from crippling weight.
Em
With resilience unsurpassed,
   D
I clawed my way to You at last.
 C                 D
And on my knees, I wept at Your feet,
  C                      D
I finally believed, that You still loved me.


E   B         Abm         C#m    B     A       E           F#  B
Healing hands of God have mercy on our unclean souls once again.
E   B         Abm          C#m
Jesus Christ, Light of the World,
B       A          E      F#        B
burning bright within our hearts forever.'
E  B    Abm        C#m     B     A
Freedom means love without condition,
    E      F#           B
without beginning or an end.
E   B            Abm       C#m  B  A
Here's my heart, let it be forever Yours,
     E             F#           B
only You can make every new day seem so new.

E B Abm C#m B A E F# B X2
end on E
