The intro is crazy fun to play if you let all the notes ring out just right. Try it. ;)

Gtr 2 does all the main chords in the song except in the verses. Gtr 1 does really quiet 
stuff that kinda just adds to the song as a whole.

[Pre-Chorus]
     F#m              C#m
So I stand before You God
  E                         B
I lift my voice because you set me free


[Chorus]
     E                            B
So I shout out your name from the rooftops I proclaim
	  C#m         A      F#m
That I am Yours, I am Yours


[Verse 2] This follows the same pattern as the first verse.


[Chorus 2]
     E                            B
So I shout out your name from the rooftops I proclaim
	  C#m         A
That I am Yours, I am Yours
E                       B
All that I am I place into Your loving hands
         C#m         A      F#m
And I am Yours, I am Yours


[Bridge] Gtr 2 does the chords, Gtr 1 covers the octaves.

Repeat that one more time, then end it on [-2245-]. Go back to the chorus and then end 
it or do whatever else you want with the song haha.

That covers it. God bless!
