            C                Am
I will stand in the truth
            Dm      Am                 Em          Em/G  G7
And I'll not be swayed from loving You
             C              Am
I'll not play in the game
          Dm          Am
And drag through the dirt the
Gm         C         Fmaj7      
Loveliest Name above all
      E7/G#
Let me take my place
    Am       F                      C           G
Be counted among Your proclaim--ers

           C           Am
I owe You everything
          Dm      Am            Em             Em/G  G7 
And because I do, these gifts I bring
                C          Am 
To Your feet I lay down
      Dm          Am                Gm                  C 
Everything that I am every thought every sound
        Fmaj7
>From my heart
     E7/G#                    Am    D9/F#          G     F
As I draw my breath I sing of who You are


CHORUS:
        C          G/B
Son of Man and the beggar's friend
         Gm/Bb          A7                Dm
You will take me in and heal my bleeding heart
          Ddim
>From the start
     Am     D9/F#    G      F   
Even now and to the end
        C           G/B
Son of God and the light You are
         Gm/Bb          A7              Dm
You will shine upon this dark and weary soul
        Ddim      F     C
Till I am whole again

          C             Am
I will hold onto You
        Dm              Am              Em                 Em/G  G7
For I lack the strength to make it through
        C             Am
Take my hand, precious Lord
        Dm   Am            Gm         C           
For I understand that I can't afford
        Fmaj7
My own way
       E7/G#          Am
Let me take my place beside You
   F               C          G
I have Your assur--ance

(solo...follow vocal line from 1st vs)
     E7/G#                        Am     D9/F#         G   F    
As I draw my breath I sing of who You are

Well done! This tab works well and can be either transposed easily or capoed up to your ow3n vacal key. I would change the chord Gm/Bb to 3x0333. This fingering is easier in the progression and doesn't change the chord. Also, I rarely use the bass notes in my playing and their omission doesn't affect the sound. Add a bass guitar and this is a great piece.
