Verse 1:
Bm                         G
Show me the way of the cross once again,
  Bm                   G              Asus4
Denying myself for the love that I've gained.
Em7           Asus4   D/F♯           G
Everything's You now, everything's changed;
              A7sus4  Bm
It's time You had my whole life,
G          A7sus4   D
   You can have it all.
Chorus:
     A   D        Asus4   D
Yes, I resolve to give it all;
G                A7sus4
Some things must die,
D                 G
Some things must live;
                Asus4
Not, 'What can I gain?'
       D         G
But, 'What can I give?'
             A7sus4       D        G
If much is required when much is recieved,
             Asus4    Bm
Then You can have my whole life,
G         Asus4   D
   Jesus, have it all.
Verse 2:
     Bm                        G
I've given like a beggar, but lived like the rich,
    Bm                     G          Asus4
And crafted myself a more comfortable cross.
     Em7        A7sus4     D/F♯         G
Yet what I am called to is deeper than this;
              Asus4   Bm
It's time You had my whole life,
G           A7sus4   D
    You can have it  all.    

SHOW ME THE WAY OF THE CROSS once again,
Denying myself for the love that I've gained.
Everything's You now, everything's changed;
It's time You had my whole life,
You can have it all.

Yes, I resolve to give it all
Some things must die, some things must live,
Not 'what can I gain', but 'what can I give'.
If much is required when much is received,
Then You can have my whole life,
Jesus, have it all.

I've given like a beggar but lived like the rich,
And crafted myself a more comfortable cross.
Yet what I am called to is deeper than this;
It's time You had my whole life,
You can have it all.

Matt Redman.
