We Are Not As Strong As We Think We Are

Psalm 139:13-16
 F2                    C
[ / / / / ][ / / / / ][ / / / / ]

Verse 1:

 F/C  G/C              C
[ / / / It took the hand of God Almighty

To part the waters of the sea
        C
But it only took one little lie
                    Cmaj7/E
To separate you and me
            F                     C
Oh, we are not as strong as we think we are


Verse 2:
F/C   G/C           C
         And they say that one day Joshua
                                  C2
Made the sun stand still in the sky
     C                                    C/E
But I can't even keep these thoughts of you from passing by
           Fmaj7           F
Oh, we are  not  as strong
Fmaj7  F           C/G
         As we think   we are


Chorus:
G  C/G          G                          F             C
       We are frail, we are fearfully and wonderfully made
                    G
Forged in the fires   of human passion
                 F                 C
Choking on the fumes of selfish rage
          G/B       Am
And with these our hells and our heavens
        Fmaj7
So few inches apart
F             C/E  Dm
   We must be aw- flly small,
                        Gsus           G
And not as strong as we think we are

Verse 3:
And the Master said their faith was
Gonna make them mountains move
But me, I tremble like a hill on a fault line
Just at the thought of how I lost you
Oh, we are not as strong as we think we are

Repeat Chorus

Bridge:
Dm
    And if you make me laugh,
       Gsus
I know      I could make you like me
C2(no3)                           C2/E   F2
        'Cause when I laugh I can  be  a lot of fun
Dm                                  Gsus     
   But when we can't do that I know      that it is fright'ning
       C2(no3)                           C2/E
What I  don't  know is why we can't hold  on,
Am2         G
  We can't hold on.

Repeat Verse 1:
It took the hand of God Almighty
To part the waters of the sea
But it only took one little lie
To separate you and me
Oh, we are not as strong as we think we are

Verse 4:
When you love you walk on the water,
Just don't stumble on the waves.
We all want to go there somethin' awful,
But to stand there it takes some grace,
'Cause oh, we are not as strong
As we think we are

G   C/G           F
      No, we are not as strong
Fmaj7  F           C
         As we think we are.
  G/C C      F          Fmaj7  F      C          C2  C
[ / / / / ][ / / / / ][  / /   / / ][ / / / / ][ / / / / ]
  F          Fmaj7  F      C          C2  C
[ / / / / ][  / /   / / ][ / / / / ][ / / / / ]
  C2                    C         
[ / / / / ][ / / / / ][ / / / / ][ / / / / ]
  C2                    C                     C
[ / / / / ][ / / / / ][ / / / / ][ / / / / ][ / / / / ]
