Verse 1:
A                          D
  I am a man who built his house on sand,
A                 D
  I am a thief upon a cross;
A                         D
  I'm just like Judas, that sorry fool,
A                                  D    A/C♯
  Who can't be glad for what he's got.
Bridge:
D
  That's why I'm hanging on
A/E                          A                      D
  To the cross on which I've flung my hopes and dreams.
            A        D   A/E                          D
It's by the grace of God    I hang my head and sing.
                       (2.) I lift my hands and sing, sing.
    Chorus:
       A            F♯m
    My God, You are good,
            A/E            D
    You are great, You are love.
       A            F♯m
    My God, You are good,
            A/E            D          A2  D2  A2  D2
 1. You are great, You are love: I Am.
            A/E            D           A
 2. You are great, You are love. Oh my God. . .
Verse 2:
A                         D
  I am a man who has been bought by love,
A                  D
  I am a man who sold his soul;
A                                 D
  I'm like the man who when he found his pearl,
A                            D     A/C♯
  He gave up ev'rything he owned.
Tag:
        D             E
You are love, You are love,
        F♯m           E/G♯   A2   D2   A2   D2
You are love, You are love.
         A
And I am loved.    

I AM A MAN WHO BUILT HIS HOUSE ON SAND
I am a thief upon a cross
I’m just like Judas, that sorry fool,
Who can’t be glad for what he’s got

That’s why I’m hanging on
To the cross on which I’ve flung my hopes and dreams
It’s by the grace of God I hang my head and sing

My God, You are good,You are great, You are love
My God, You are good,You are great, You are love : I AM


I am a man who has been bought by love
I am a man who sold his soul
I’m like the man who when he found his pearl
He gave up everything he owned

That’s why I’m hanging on
To the cross on which I’ve flung my hopes and dreams
It’s by the grace of God I lift my hands and sing

You are love, You are love
You are love, You are love
And I am loved
