Verse 1:
G            C                  Am7                    D
    I have heard that You are swift to bless the seeker,
G              C                  Am7               D
    And I believe that You will hear the constant cry;
G              C             Am7                 D
    So I will call until I know I've had an answer,
Am7                       Dsus4  D
    I need Your power, Lord!
G               C                 Am7                D
    As Jacob wrestled, so I'll wrestle with Your angel,
G                   C             Am7          D
    And though I'm weary, I will not be overcome,
G                  C           Am7                 D
    For You have given me a passion for Your kingdom
Am7                    Dsus4  D
    O let Your glory fall!
Chorus:
            G    C G/B Am7    D
I won't let go,
            G   C    G/B     Am7      D
I won't let go     until You bless me.
             G   C    G/B    Am7      D
I won't take no       for an answer;
C  G/B  C   D          G  C  Am7  D   G
Jesus,  I   won't let go!

I HAVE HEARD that You are swift to bless the seeker
And I believe that You will hear the constant cry
So I will call until I know I've had an answer
I need Your power Lord
As Jacob wrestled so I'll wrestle with Your angel
And though I'm weary I will not be overcome
For You have given me a passion for Your kingdom
O let Your glory fall

I won't let go
I won't let go until You bless me
I won't take no for an answer
Jesus I won't let go

I have heard that You show mercy to a nation
And I believe that You give power to Your church
So now I'm asking You to open up the heavens
Pour out Your mercy Lord
For Your gospel to be lived among Your people
For Your miracle of healing on the streets
For the government to fear the Lord Almighty
We need Your power Lord

I'm not ungrateful for the blessings You have given
But I can see the need around me
I'm not ashamed to say I need all that You have
So Father hear me knocking
See me holding out my hands to You

For a hunger that will overcome my weakness
For a love that will not seek it's own reward
For my life to make a difference in this nation
I need Your power Lord
