Verse 1:
     D           F#m  D
Your broken form up - on the cross,
     G    D          A
Your holy love expressed
D          F#m  D
Stirs a passion in my soul,
G       D/F#  D       A
Calling me to give my best.

   D     G   D       A       D
No sacrifice I could give to You
      D/F#                    A
Could match what You’ve given me.
       F#m           D             A
For my everything is but a drop of dew
       D    G      D
And Calvary is the sea.
        A      D
Calvary is the sea.

Verse 2:
If I could take the love I feel
And capture it with words,
More than what my heart could give
Is still much less than You deserve.

Verse 3:
If I should ever doubt Your love
My only prayer would be
That You would keep Your rugged cross
Etched upon my memory.

I heard this beautiful song at church a few weeks ago. It tells of how nothing we can
sacrifice, can match what God has given to us. Calvary is so big it encompasses all of our
sins. It illustrates the relationship we have with Jesus, but also leaves us with a
feeling of awesome reverence for Jesus' sacrifice on the cross. One that we cannot take 
too lightly.

This is my attempt at creating a tab for the chords of the song. The chords might not be
in the right positions, so please, do tell me if I messed up. As well, I've only used
chords that I know, so I might have missed an inversion or a dominant somewhere. I've
been teaching myself guitar for the last half year, so tell me how I'm doing!

Note: On the D at the end of the first line (of the Verse), I guess you can switch out
the D for a Bm (or add the Bm, and change to D), since it sounds alright. And if you want
a track to practice with, you can watch it here on YouTube
