Verse 1:
G                      Am7
Something inside of me knows there is surely more then this.
C                         G
Echoes of eternity all around us.
                                   Am7
There's music within my soul, I'm  more than these flesh and bones, I know,
C                                G
Whispers of a destiny deep inside us.
Chorus:
      G
This beating heart, like a drum, it will beat for You.
Am7
    This heart, like a drum, it will beat.
    C             G
My soul, my soul sings for You.
This beating heart, I was made, I was made for You.
Am7
    My God, evermore, evermore.
    C             G
My soul, my soul sings for You.  [1. to v.2 — 2. Repeat Chorus]

            My soul sings for You. [Repeat]
Verse 2:
       G                                   Am7
We're marked by Your fingerprints, there's evidence running through these
     C                      G
That we are a masterpiece with a Maker.
                              Am7
Formed in the secret place, a mystery born of  love and grace,
C                             G
You had a name for me and a purpose.
Bridge:
    C                               G
My life be on Your altar, God;  my ev'ry breath exalting You.
   C/E                              D
My life be on Your altar God; this heart like a drum, beating strong for You.
    C                               G
My life be on Your altar, God;  my ev'ry breath exalting You.
   C/E                              D/F♯
My life be on Your altar God; this heart like a drum, beating strong for You.

Oh, this beating heart. [To Chorus]

           C             Am7    C           G
Sing,  my soul, sing, my soul,     my soul sings for You. [Repeat]

Something inside of me
Knows there is surely more than this
Echoes of eternity all around us

Something inside of me
Knows there is surely more than this
Echoes of eternity all around us
There's music within my soul
More than these flesh and bones I know
Whispers of a destiny deep inside us

This beating heart like a drum it will beat for You
This heart like a drum it will beat
My soul my soul sings for You
This beating heart I was made I was made for You
My God evermore evermore
My soul my soul sings for You

We're marked by Your fingerprints
There's evidence running through these veins
That we are a masterpiece with a Maker
Formed in the secret place
A mystery born of love and grace
You had a name for me and a purpose

My soul sings for You

My life be on Your altar God
My ev'ry breath exalting You
My life be on Your altar God
This heart like a drum beating strong for You
(REPEAT)
Oh this beating heart

Sing my soul
Sing my soul
My soul sings for You
