Intro:   
Em7  D/F♯  G      Em7  D/F♯   G
Verse 1:
D                    G       A7sus4      D
  I will offer up my life in spirit and truth
                       G          A7sus4     D
Pouring out the oil of love as my worship to You
      D/F♯           G      A7sus4  Bm7
In surrender I must give my every   part
                       G         A7sus4 D
Lord, receive the sacrifice of a broken heart
Chorus:
                   G    A7sus4       D
Jesus, what can I give, what can I bring
                   G           A7sus4    D
To so faithful a friend, to so loving a King?
                      G   A7sus4        D
Saviour, what can be said, what can be sung
                     G
As a praise of Your name
        A7sus4           D
For the things You have done?
                        Em7       D/F♯     G
Oh, my words could not tell,  not even in part
       Em7     D/F♯          G      A7sus4         D
Of the debt of love that is owed by this thankful heart
Verse 2:
You deserve my every breath for You've paid the great cost
Giving up Your life to death, even death on a cross
You took all my shame away, there defeated my sin
Opened up the gates of heaven, and have beckoned me in

I will offer up my life
In spirit and truth,
Pouring out the oil of love
As my worship to You.
In surrender I must give my every part;
Lord, receive the sacrifice
Of a broken heart.

Jesus, what can I give, what can I bring
To so faithful a friend, to so loving a King?
Savior, what can be said, what can be sung
As a praise of Your name
For the things You have done?
Oh, my words could not tell, not even in part,
Of the debt of love that is owed by this thankful heart.

You deserve my every breath
For You've paid the great cost;
Giving up Your life to death,
Even death on a cross.
You took all my shame away,
There defeated my sin,
Opened up the gates of heaven,
And have beckoned me in.
