Things We Leave Behind
Michael Card (1994)
Poiema
(c) 1994 The Sparrow Corporation

(Capo 3rd Fret)

G          Em        C        D
There sits Simon so foolishly wise
G             C           D
Proudly he's tending his nets
G           Em           C            D
Then Jesus calls and the boats drift away
G                C         D
And all that he owns he forgets
     C            Am       Em
But more than the nets he abandoned that day
    C              Am             Em
He found that his pride was soon drifting away
          C        Am         Em          G
And it's hard to imagine the freedom we find
           C        Am      G
>From the things we leave behind

G            Em         C          D
Matthew was mindful of taking the tax
    G            C         D
And pressing the people to pay
    G           Em          C         D
But hearing the call he responded in faith
G                 C            D
And followed the Light and the Way
    C            Am        Em
And leaving the people so puzzled he found
    C            Am            Em
The greed in his heart was no longer around
         C         Am          Em         G
And it's hard to imagine the freedom we find
           C        Am     G
>From the things we leave behind

Bridge:
Em                   Am
Every heart needs to be set free
      Em                          Am
>From possessions that hold it so tight
        D                          C             Am
'Cause freedom's not found in the things that we own
          Em                  D
It's the power to do what is right
Em                      Am
With Jesus, our only possession
Em                        Am
Then giving becomes our delight
    D                     C          Am
And we can't imagine the freedom we find
           C        Am     G
>From the things we leave behind


(Capo 4th fret)

G          Em           C            D
We show a love for the world in our lives
    G           C           D
By worshipping goods we possess
      G          Em             C         D
When Jesus says, Lay all your treasures aside
     G        C             D
And love God above all the rest
        C          Am         Em
'Cause when we say no to the things of the world
    C        Am            Em
We open our hearts to the love of the Lord
          C       Am          Em         G
And it's hard to imagine the freedom we find
          C         Am      G
>From the things we leave behind

     C          Am         Em 
And when we say no to the things of the world
    C        Am            Em
We open our hearts to the love of the Lord
          C        Am         Em         G
And it's hard to imagine the freedom we find
          C         Am      G
>From the things we leave behind

          C        Am         Em         G
And it's hard to imagine the freedom we find
          C         Am      G
>From the things we leave behind
