D                         A
You give me joy that’s unspeakable
       E              Bm
And I like it, and I like it
D                         A
Your love for me is irresistible
          E                 Bm
I can't fight it, I can't fight it

(Electric Riff Through Whole Verse)

                        Bm              A
If life is water I was dry and Tucson dirt
                        Bm              A
If it’s a gamble I'd already lost my shirt
                         Bm             A      
If it’s a journey I was dazed without a clue
                              Bm               A
I flipped a "U" back to the first love I ever knew


D                         A
You give me joy that’s unspeakable
       E              Bm
And I like it, and I like it
D                      A
Your love for me is irresistible
          E                 Bm
I can't fight it, I can't fight it
D                          A
You carried the cross and took my shame
      E             Bm 
I believe it, I believe it
D                         A
You shine your light of amazing grace
     E            Bm
I receive it, I receive it





(Electric Riff Through Whole Verse)

                          Bm            A
If life's a battle the invasion is complete
                          Bm              A            
If it’s a rhythm I have found the perfect beat
                          Bm              A  
If it’s a Renaissance I've got a new birthday
                               Bm                 A
The world don't give it and the world can't take it away



D                         A
You give me joy that's unspeakable
       E              Bm
And I like it, and I like it
D                      A
Your love for me is irresistible
          E                 Bm
I can't fight it, I can't fight it
D                          A
You carried the cross and took my shame
      E             Bm 
I believe it, I believe it
D                         A
You shine your light of amazing grace
     E            Bm
I receive it, I receive it



Bm            D           A        E
I'm bowed and broken, everything's new
Bm            D           A        E
All that I need, your like water to seed
     Bm       D           A         E
And how your love rights everything wrong
   Bm      D      A
In my weakness you’re ever stronger
                          E
Pulling me back where I belong


(Rhythm Guitar Only)

D                         A
You give me joy that's unspeakable
       E              Bm
And I like it, and I like it
D                      A
Your love for me's irresistible
          E                Bm           
I can't fight it, I can't fight it





(Everybody Joins In)

D                          A
You carried the cross and took my shame
      E             Bm 
I believe it, I believe it
D                         A
You shine your light of amazing grace
     E            Bm
I receive it, I receive it
