Original Key: D


Verse 1:
       D          D/F♯    G  A
With a pray'r You fed the hungry,
       Bm      D/F♯         Asus4  A
With a cry You stilled the storm;
       Em7             D/F♯ 
With a look You had compassion 
       G                Asus4  A
On the desp'rate and forlorn.
       G/B                  D/A
With a touch You healed the leper,
       D         Bm         G
With a shout You raised the dead;
       C                 G/B
With a word expelled the demons,
       Em7      A7sus4    D
With a blessing broke the bread.
Chorus:
Gmaj7           A      Bm   Dmaj7/A
Love incarnate, love divine,
Gmaj7          A/G      D/F♯ 
Captivate this heart of mine
     G     Asus4  A           D
Till all I do       speaks of You.
Verse 2:
     D       D/F♯     G   A
As a sheep before the shearer
         Bm     D/F♯    Asus4  A
You were silent in Your pain;
      Em7         D/F♯ 
You endured humiliation
       G                    Asus4  A
At the hands of those You'd made.
       G/B                D/A
And as hell unleashed its fury
         D      Bm   G
You were lifted on a tree,
         C              G/B
Crying, 'Father God, forgive them,
            Em7   A7sus4  D
Place their punishment on Me.'
Verse 3:
       D        D/F♯     G  A
I will feed the poor and hungry,
       Bm       D/F♯    Asus4  A
I will stand up for the truth;
       Em7               D/F♯ 
I will take my cross and follow
       G              Asus4  A
To the corners of the earth.
      G/B             D/A
And I ask that You so fill me
          D           Bm          G
With Your peace, Your power, Your breath,
       C             G/B
That I never love my life so much
   Em7         A7sus4   D
To shrink from facing   death.

WITH A PRAYER You fed the hungry,
With a cry You stilled the storm;
With a look You had compassion
On the desperate and forlorn.
With a touch You healed the leper,
With a shout You raised the dead;
With a word expelled the demons,
With a blessing broke the bread.

Love incarnate, love divine,
Captivate this heart of mine
Till all I do speaks of You.

As a sheep before the shearer
You were silent in Your pain;
You endured humiliation
At the hands of those You'd made.
And as hell unleashed its fury
You were lifted on a tree,
Crying 'Father God, forgive them,
Place their punishment on Me.'

I will feed the poor and hungry,
I will stand up for the truth;
I will take my cross and follow
To the corners of the earth.
And I ask that You so fill me
With Your peace, Your power, Your breath,
That I never love my life so much
To shrink from facing death.
