*** Chorus

A                C             D          F
A straight line exists between me and the good things.
A                 C               D         F
I have found the line and its direction is known to me.
A                        C           D         F
Absolute trust keeps me going in the right direction.
A                C          D                 F
Any intrusion is met with a heart full of the good thing.

G       Em     G    Em        G       Em  G  Em
Try to compare     what I am presenting.
G        Em    G    Em         G       Em  G  Em
You will meet      with much frustration.
G        Em   G   Em          G     Em  G  Em
Try to find   ... similar situation.
G        Em   G     Em             G    Em  G  Em  
You will always    find the same solution.


   
A                   C                  D           F
As the heart finds the good thing, the feeling is multiplied.
A                   C               D       F
Add the will to the strength and it equals conviction.
A              C     D         F
As we economise, efficiency is multiplied,
A                 C           D               F
To the extent I am determined the result is the good thing.
So I say:


Gm                       F
I have adopted this and made it my own:
Gm                          F
Cut back the weakness, reinforce what is strong.
Gm                       F
I have adopted this and made it my own:
Gm                          F
Cut back the weakness, reinforce what is strong.
