Alright, here's another one that we do that I thought you might enjoy. It's a
powerful hymn, so have some fun with it and sing your heart out.

We play with a Capo 2, but it can be done without it. So wherever you feel
comfortable, go for it. (All chords are relative to the capo)

[Verse 1]
D                    Em7  D/F# G
How deep the fathers love for us
    D/F#            Bm7  A
How vast beyond all mea-sure
     D                 Em7 D/F#  G
That He should give his only   son
     D                A    D
To make a wretch His trea-sure
          D           Em7 D/F#  G
How great the pain of searing loss
    D/F#             Bm7   A
The Father turns His face away
       D               Em7 D/F#  G
As wounds which mar the Chosen  One
       D             A D
Bring many son's to glory


[Verse 2]
    D           Em7  D/F#  G     
Behold the Man upon the cross 
   D/F#          Bm7  A
My sin upon His shoulder
    D             Em7 D/F#  G
Ashamed I hear my mocking voice
      D            A    D
Call out among the scoffers
     D             Em7  D/F#  G
It was my sin that held Him there
    D/F#           Bm7    A
Until it was accom-plished
        D              Em7   D/F#  G
His dying breath has brought me life
   D               A   D
I know that it is finished


[Verse 3]
   D               Em7 D/F# G   
I will not boast in anything 
    D/F#            Bm7   A
No gifts no power no wisdom
    D               Em7 D/F# G
But I will boast in Jesus Christ
      D             A   D
His death and resurrection
      D           Em7 D/F# G
Why should I from His reward 
   D/F#          Bm7 A
I cannot give an answer
     D               Em7 D/F# G
But this I know with all my heart
      D                  A  D
His wounds have paid my ransom

Repeat the last four lines twice slowing down as you go.
Thanks and enjoy!

This is nice and accurate, though the chords are out of synch with the words. A bit of advice about playing the song: the time signature is 6/4, although you can simplify this and say it's in 2/4. This confused me at first.

This is good, but for Bm7, I play A7sus. Also, I'm pretty sure it's in 5/4 time.
