{Verse 1}
Dm               Bb2              
   Jesus, I've forgotten the
     F                  C    Bb2
   Words that You have spoken
Dm                Bb2                  F       
   Promises that burned within my heart 
                   C
   Have now grown dim
             Dm             Bb2         F   
   With a doubting heart I follow the paths 
                C   Bb2
   Of earthly wisdom
Dm                     Bb2         
   Forgive me for my unbelief
      F           Csus4   C
   Renew the fire again

 Gm   C7/E   Fsus4   F   
Lord, have    mer - cy  
 F/A    F/Bb   C/E   Dm
Christ, have   mer - cy
 Gm   C7/E   Fsus4   F   Bb   C   Fsus4   F

{Verse 2}
Dm                  Bb2              
   I have built an altar where 
        F               C   Bb2
   I worship things of man
Dm                Bb2              
   I have taken journeys that 
             F                C
   Have drawn me far from You
Dm             Bb2             
   Now I am returning to 
          F             C    Bb2
   Your mercies ever flowing
Dm               Bb2           
   Pardon my transgressions
          F         Csus4   C
   Help me love You again

[Repeat Chorus]

{Verse 3}
Dm                  Bb2          
   I have longed to know You 
        F               C   Bb2
   And all Your tender mercies
           Dm         Bb2           
   Like a river of forgiveness 
           F             C
   Ever flowing without end
        Dm                Bb2              
   So I bow my heart before You 
             F              C   Bb2
   In the goodness of Your presence
Dm                      Bb2             
   Your grace forever shining 
            F           Csus4   C
   Like a beacon in the night

[Repeat Chorus 2x]
