Original Key: D


Verse 1:
D                   A/C♯
   What wonder of grace is this,
     Bm7       Em7        A7sus4
What story of passion divine,
D                       A/C♯   F♯m7
   Where judgement and mercy kiss,
      Bm7         E/G♯       A7sus4  A7 D/F♯ 
Where power and love are entwined?
G                           D/F♯
   No tongue can speak this glory,
Em7           G/A               Bm7
   No words express the joy You bring
     A7sus4      A7
As I enter the courts of the King.
Chorus:
D            Em7        F♯7
   My desire    is to come to this place,
Bm7          Am7         D7sus4
   My desire    is to look on Your face,
Gmaj7         G6           D2/F♯     D/F♯
   Perfect in beauty, in truth and love,
Gmaj7         G6           D2/F♯       Bm7  Am7
   Your glory shines over all the earth;
Gmaj7           G6         D2/F♯  Bm7        Em7    G/A  D
   The King who lavishes grace on us is here.
Verse 2:
D                    A/C♯
   Your will is my daily bread,
  Bm7          Em7         A7sus4
Enough for my plenty and need;
D                     A/C♯        F♯m7
   I'll live by the words You've said,
    Bm7         E/G♯       A7sus4  A7 D/F♯
And follow wherever You lead.
G                          D/F♯
   And though my flesh may fail me,
Em7               G/A             Bm7
   You prove Your grace in all I do;
         A7sus4       A7
Lord, my heart is devoted to You.

WHAT WONDER OF GRACE IS THIS
What story of passion divine
Where judgmentand mercy kiss
Where power and love are entwined
No tongue can speak this glory
No words express the joy You bring
As I enter the courts of the King

My desire (my desire) is to come to this place
My desire (my desire) is to look on Your face
Perfect in beauty in truth and love
Your glory shines over all the earth
The King who lavishes grace on us is here

Your will is my daily bread
Enough for my plenty and need
I'll live by the words You've said
And follow wherever You lead
And though my flesh may fail me
You prove Your grace in all I do
Lord my heart is devoted to You
