Verse 1:
G
  Empty handed here I come,
                            Cmaj7
  I have nothing left to give You.
G
  Take my heart and all I am;
                        Cmaj7
  who else, Lord can I run to?
Em7
  Every part of me You see;
                       Cmaj7
  I'm an open book before You.
G
  Jesus, take me as I am;
                       Cmaj7
  I can come no other way.

  Years of pain are washed away

  perfect love will carry me.

I lay my life down here.

I give it all to You,
     Em       D
it's all for You.
            C       Bm7       Em7
Nothing can keep me from Your love,
        C        D
oh, the love of Jesus.

Empty handed here I come
I have nothing left to give You
Take my heart and all I am
Who else Lord can I run to?

Every part of me You see
I’m an open book before You
Jesus take me as I am
I can come no other way

Your arms are big enough for me

Years of pain are washed away
In the beauty of Your presence
In this moment, everyday
Perfect love will carry me

Your arms are big enough for me
Your grace is strong enough for me

I lay my life down here
I give it all to You
It’s all for You
Nothing can keep me from Your love
Oh the love of Jesus
