            Bb                  Eb
Preacher, I'd say its been a while
                                  Ab
since you heard this request,
                     Eb
but my spirit is tired,
        Em  Bb
and I need rest.
    Eb           
I want to hear from heaven,
     Ab                         Eb
a clear word from God,
        Eb          
a sermon of conviction
                      Bb
straight from the heart. 

                E                     
I've been hearin' other preachers 
                        A
say I don't have to change, 
                            E
the most eloquent of speakers 
                
tell me I'm okay, 
B                                E
but it hasn't eased my conscience,
                           A
and I know its not the truth,
                                E
so when you stand before us,
                  B
can I count on you?


        E
Oh preacher,
                          A     E
you say you want to be my friend, 
                       A               E                B
don't be afraid to call my sin what it is. 
        E   Abm         E       
And preacher, tell me I can overcome, 
                A               E             B
but its only by the blood of the lamb .
 Abm F#m                                B
Don't tell me like I wish it was, 
           A         E  
preacher tell me like it is.

B       E       

      C           F
so open up the word 
        C      Em      Bb
and let the spirit lead 
Gm                 F
preach until i've heard 
                C
God speak to me 
                            F
don't worry 'bout my feelings 
                Bb
don't worry 'bout my shame 
                             F
just preach the cross of Jesus 
          Am      C
and that I'm to blame. 


        F
Oh preacher,
 Am                       Bb    F
you say you want to be my friend, 
                     Bb        F                C
don't be afraid to call my sin what it is. 
        F   Am                    Bb  F
And preacher, tell me I can overcome, 
                Bb      F                     C
but its only by the blood of the lamb .
 Gm                             C
Don't tell me like I wish it was, 
           Bb        E         F
preacher tell me like it is.

Dm                    Bb
Life is quickly passing, 
        F     
the world is fading fast, 
           Dm            Bb
and the foolishness of preaching 
          Gm                 C
is the only hope we have. 

        F
So preacher,
                          Bb    F
you say you want to be my friend, 
                     Bb        F                C
don't be afraid to call my sin what it is. 
        F   Am                    Bb  F
And preacher, tell me I can overcome, 
                Bb      F                     C
but its only by the blood of the lamb .
 Gm                             C
Don't tell me like I wish it was, 
           Bb       C   F
preacher tell me like it is.
