Key: E
Intro:
C#m  A  E  B [x2]

Verse 1:
 C#m                G#m
It still feels like yesterday,
 C#m            G#m
A lifetime of empty days,
  A                                 E      B
My hungry heart was desperate for a meal.
  C#m             G#m
I feasted on the Bread of Life,
  C#m                   G#m
Forgiveness pierced me like a knife,
        A                                      E      B
And your breath filled up my lungs and I could feel.
         F#m           G#m       B
And I was broken and all I could say,

Chorus:
         C#m         A          E     B
Was if I ever needed grace it's now
          C#m            A         B
You are strong when I am weak somehow
     C#m            A              F#m
I am weak enough to see that I need you to cover me
     A           B         C#m   A   E   B
If I ever needed grace it's now.

Verse 2:
  C#m              G#m
I met the woman of my dreams,
  C#m                G#m
I wanted to give her everything,
    A                             E      B
But fear came like a thief in the night.
   C#m                G#m
But my journal pages prophesied,
    C#m                G#m
That one day I'd make her my bride,
     A                               E        B
And soon, my best friend was wearing white.
         F#m         G#m         B
With our lives ahead all I could say,

[Chorus]
         C#m         A          E     B
Was if I ever needed grace it's now
          C#m            A          B
You are strong when I am weak somehow
           C#m      A               F#m
I am weak enough to see that I need you to cover me
     A           B          A
If I ever needed grace it's now.

Bridge:                        
A                 G#m
In every joy and pain
                  F#m
Whatever comes my way
                  B    (opt F#m hold until you start verse 3) 
God I need your grace

Verse 3:
C#m                    G#m
Nine short months til' she arrived
C#m              G#m
Little hands and lions eyes
    A                                  E        B
And I'm so scared I don't have what it takes.
      C#m                   G#m
But I hear your voice, "Son lean on me,"
    C#m        G#m
Father give me eyes to see
 A                             B
All I need's the power of your name

Chorus:
          C#m         A          E        B
Was if I ever needed grace it's now
        C#m              A         B
You are strong when I am weak somehow
     C#m             A              F#m       
I am weak enough to see that I need you to cover me
      A                    G#m
If I ever needed grace
                  F#m         A
If I ever needed grace
      A          B           C#m       A     E
If I ever needed grace, it's now...



There might be some rough spots like the bridge, but I did most of this by
ear. So hopefully it helps. And you can go back to any verse after you play
the outro by simply playing the 5 chord (B chord). Thank you, please give
feed back if possible, thanks and God Bless.

hehe @binnen. I thought I was the only one who was having thougts about the first verse.

Though I really expect that you won't be able to see this since you commented on this song 3 years ago. :D
