Chorus
G        D/F♯         C2         G
Fading away in the light of Your presence, 
C                  D              G    C/E
All my earthly cares just fade away.
        G        D/F♯         C2         G
They're fading away in the light of Your presence, 
C                  D               G
All my earthly cares just fade away.
Verse 1:
   D/F♯             G    C               G
As I draw near to You, You draw near to me;
     D/F♯             C/E              Gsus4    G
As I listen to Your voice, You whisper soft  -  ly, 
          C                   B                Em  Em/D
And I'm reminded just how close You really are.
   C                    G2/B           C        G/B   Dsus4     D
My anxious thoughts are quieted by the beating of Your      heart.
Verse 2:
As I remember You, You reveal to me;
I have always be surrounded by Your mercy.
And Your faithfulness has kept me
Through the years.
The power of Your perfect love
Has defeated all my fears. 
    
Bridge:
C                       G                      D
  As I reflect upon the kindness You have shown, 
C                          G                   D  C2
  My heart rejoices as You make Your glory known.
G    D/F♯   C2/E                G/D
Je - sus,   fairer than ten thousand, 
C           D           G    C/E
Glorious in majesty You are.
G    D/F♯   C2/E           G/D
Je - sus,   beautiful and holy, 
C               D             G   C/G    G
Light of heaven burning in my heart.

FADING AWAY in the light of Your presence,
All my earthly cares just fade away.
They're fading away in the light of Your presence,
All my earthly cares just fade away.

As I draw near to You,
You draw near to me;
As I listen to Your voice, You whisper softly,
And I'm reminded just how close You really are.
My anxious thoughts are quieted
By the beating of Your heart.

As I remember You, You reveal to me;
I have always been surrounded by Your mercy.
And Your faithfulness has kept me through the years.
The power of Your perfect love
Has defeated all my fears.

As I reflect upon the kindness You have shown,
My heart rejoices as You make Your glory known.

(Final chorus)
Jesus, fairer than ten thousand,
Glorious in majesty You are.
Jesus, beautiful and holy,
Light of heaven burning in my heart.
