Original Key: Gm


Verse 1:
Gm             B♭maj7
  My soul is weak, my heart is numb,
E♭maj7         Gm               B♭maj7         E♭maj7
  I cannot see, but still my hope is found in You.
Gm             B♭maj7          E♭maj7
  I hold on tightly, You will never let me go,
Cm7             B♭              F
  For Jesus, You will never fail,
Cm7        B♭               F
  Jesus, You will never fail.
Chorus:
B♭
Simply to the cross I cling,
F                              Cm7
Letting go of all earthly things,
    E♭maj7          F
I'm clinging to the cross.
B♭
Mercy's found a way for me,
F
Hope is here as I am free,
Cm7
Jesus, You are all I need;
1.
    E♭maj7                 F  Gm   B♭/F   E♭maj7   Gm   B♭/F   E♭maj7
I'm clinging to the cross.
2.
    E♭maj7                 F
I'm clinging to the cross.
Verse 2:
Even darkness is as light to You, my Lord,
So light the way and lead me home -
To that place where every tear is wiped away:
For Jesus, You will never fail,
Jesus, You will never fail.
         Gm     B♭      E♭maj7    Cm7
What a Saviour, what a story,
           Gm       B♭      E♭maj7       Cm7
You were crucified,    but now You are alive.
     Gm     B♭           E♭maj7    Cm7
So amazing,    such a mystery,
           Gm       B♭      E♭maj7       Cm7
You were crucified,    but now You are alive.

MY SOUL IS WEAK MY HEART IS NUMB
I cannot see
But still my hope is found in You
I'll hold on tightly
You will never let me go

For Jesus You will never fail
Jesus You will never fail

Simply to the cross I cling
Letting go of all earthly things
Clinging to the cross
Mercy's found a way for me
Hope is here as I am free
Jesus You are all I need
Clinging to the cross

Even darkness is as light
To You my Lord
So light the way and lead me home
To that place where
Every tear is wiped away

For Jesus You will never fail
Jesus You will never fail

What a Savior, what a story
You were crucified but now You are alive
So amazing, such a mystery
You were crucified but now You are alive
