Original Key: G


Verse:
G                   Em7
  The disease of my soul was spreading,
C2
Eating me up on the inside,
Am7
Keeping my heart from Your new life.
G                    Em7
  And I see now where I was headed,
    C2
For there is no cure that can save us,
   Am7
Outside of Your mercy Lord Jesus.
D                            C2
  Yes, You stepped in with Your power to save,
         D                    C2
Let forgiveness reign, worked a miracle within.
Chorus:
              G
Thank You for healing me,
      Em7
I was dying beneath my shame,
        D                                    C2
But You brought me to life again, and I will sing:
              G
Thank You for freeing me,
      Em7
I was dead to the truth of You,
       D                                    C2
But my healing was in Your wounds, and now I sing:
                      G2     G
Thank You for healing me. [Last x]   [Oh.  To coda]
Mid section:
       D
Though outwardly I may waste away,
       C                                 G2
On the inside I'll be more alive every day.
     D
As I walk through times of pain and grief,
          C
There's a deeper truth inside of me,
         Em7
You have placed Your life inside of me, so I sing:
Coda:
G
  I'm alive, I'm alive,
Em7
  I'm alive, I'm alive in You.
D                        C2
  Thank You for healing me. [Repeat]

THE DISEASE OF MY SOUL WAS SPREADING,
Eating me up on the inside,
Keeping my heart from Your new life.
And I see now where I was headed,
For there is no cure that can save us,
Outside of Your mercy Lord Jesus.

Yes,You stepped in with Your power to save,
Let forgiveness reign, worked a miracle within.

Thank You for healing me,
I was dying beneath my shame,
But You brought me to life again, and I will sing:
Thank You for freeing me,
I was dead to the truth of You,
But my healing was in Your wounds, and now I sing:
Thank You for healing me.

Though outwardly I may waste away,
On the inside I'll be more alive every day.
As I walk through times of pain and grief,
There's a deeper truth inside of me,
You have placed Your life inside of me, so I sing:

I'm alive, I'm alive,
I'm alive, I'm alive in You.
Thank You for healing me.
