Iron Sharpens Iron
Words and Music by Bob Kauflin and Ed Nalle
on Beyond a Star by Glad

Intro: Am2        Bbmaj7/C   Fmaj7/G

    D/E             G7sus4        C      A2
The only lasting love begins with honesty
    Em7        F     Am7             D2      F G
But don't become discouraged when we disagree
A               G              F         G   C
Lies are so appealing when you want to be my friend
    F            Em7 D       E4     F#m7  Em7
But all you'll do is hurt me in the end

Am             Fmaj7
Iron sharpens iron
   Em7                     C    D
As we get closer there might be pain
Fmaj7          Bbmaj7
Iron sharpens iron
G/A      G/C      C/F     G2  Am2     Bbmaj7/C  Fmaj7/G
We can never remain the same

   D/E            G7sus4          C            A2
If only we have patience while we bear the pain
Em7       F       Am7           D2         F G
Holding on, we know our hope is not in vain
    A               G          F         G   C
For hope is not deceptive when we are not deceived
        F          Em7 D         E4   F#m7   Em7
And the love of God appears when we believe


D/E                 G7sus4       C          A2
Every stone for building must be cut to size
    Em7     F         Am7            D2      F G
And we as living stones must come to realize
      A                   G                F          G    C
To be changed into his likeness there's so much we must be shown
    F         Em7 D        E4    F#m7  Em7
And we were never meant to grow alone
