Verse 1:
G                    A7/G
Christ, what have we done?
            F♯m            Bm7
Oh, my God, what have we become?
A              G                  A7/G
We're like the priest that passes by
                 F♯m                Bm7
the broken and bruised on the other side.
A          G                 A7
Clang our cymbals, sing our hymns,
            F♯m             Bm7
but turn a blind eye to our sin.
A        Bm      F♯m/A    G   F♯m   Bm   A   A7
Singing, Christ, have     mercy     on   us.
Chorus:
        D
Lamb of God,
                     F♯m
who takes away the sin of the world.
         Bm7
We are sinners, gone astray;
      A7
have mercy, Lord.
         D
Lamb of God,
                     F♯m
who takes away the sin of the world.
          Bm7
We are sinners, gone astray;
      A7
have mercy, Lord.
Verse 2:
G                     A7/G
Proud, we have played God,
         F♯m               Bm7
arrogant rebels from the start.
A        G                 A7/G
Dying to kill who You let live,
          F♯m               Bm7
eager to judge who You forgive.
A           G               A7
Mad for the glitter of our gold,
              F♯m            Bm7
but we can't buy or sell the soul.
A              G                 A7
Though we confess, You take the blame;
         F♯m              Bm7
Lamb of God, we plead, we pray.
A        Bm      F♯m/A   G   F♯m   Bm   A   A7
Singing, Christ, have    mercy     on   us.
Mid section:
                 D
Redeemer of the world,
                  F♯m
forgiveness is divine.
                     Bm
In Christ the risen Son
                    A7
there is no sin too great to reconcile.
To end:
                  D
Redeemer of the world.

Christ, what have we done?
Oh, my God, what have we become?
We’re like the priest that passes by
The broken and bruised on the other side
We clang our cymbals, sing our hymns
But turn a blind eye to our sin

Christ, have mercy on us

Lamb of God
Who takes away the sin of the world
We are sinners, gone astray
Have mercy, Lord

Proud, we have played God
Arrogant rebels from the start
Dying to kill who You let live,
Eager to judge who You forgive
Mad for the glitter of our gold,
But we can’t buy or sell the soul
Though we confess, You take the blame
Lamb of God, we plead, we pray

Redeemer of the world
Forgiveness is divine
In Christ the risen Son
There is no sin too great to reconcile

Lamb of God
Who takes away the sin of the world
We are sinners, saved by grace
Make peace with us
