{Intro}
A   D   
{Half-Chorus}
               A          E 
You took the nails for me
               A      D 
You took the nails
              F♯m         E 
You took the nails for me
{Chorus 1}
               A      D 
You took the nails             
               A          E 
You took the nails for me
               A      D 
You took the nails
              F♯m         E 
You took the nails for me
{Verse}
        A    D   
How can I repay You
         A          D 
For the day at Calvary
             A           D 
You had the pow’r to save Yourself
           A              D 
But You thought of me instead
{Pre-Chorus}
           D  E/D   D  
Oh what a sacrifice
                D   E/D  F♯sus  
To freely lay down Your life
                        Bm
So my soul wouldn’t be lost
     A/C♯     D     E 
You paid the cost
[Repeat Chorus 1]
{Bridge 1}
    E      F♯m        D      A     
I can’t imagine what You endured
      D     Bm        E     
I’ll never know the pain
      E      F♯m     D     A 
One thing I know and I am sure
     D       Bm     E      
That I have been redeemed
[Repeat Bridge 1]
[Repeat Bridge 1]
{Chorus 2}
               B      E 
You took the nails             
               B      F♯ 
You took the nails 
               B      E 
You took the nails
              G##m     F# 
You took the nails for me
{Bridge 2}
     G♯m                E 
The nails represent my sin
                 B 
Everything I’ve been through
             F♯
Everything I am
            C♯m  E    G♯m   B 
You took it all   for me
            C♯m  F♯/A♯   B     
You took it all   for   me
     G♯m                E 
The nails represent my sin
                 B 
Everything I’ve been through
             F♯
Everything I am
            C♯m  E    G♯m   B 
You took it all   for me
            C♯m  E    G♯m   B 
You took it all   for me
{Interlude}
C♯m  E  G♯m  B
C♯m  E  G♯m  B
C♯m  E  G♯m  B
C♯m  E  F♯/A♯ B 

You took the nails
You took the nails for me
You took the nails
You took the nails for me

How can I repay You
For the day at Calvary
You had the pow’r to save Yourself
But You thought of me instead

(And) oh, what a sacrifice
To freely lay down Your life
So my soul wouldn’t be lost
You paid the cost

I can’t imagine what You endured
I’ll never know the pain
One thing I know
And I am sure
That I have been redeemed

The nails represent my sin
Everything I’ve been through
Everything I am
You took it all for me
You took it all for me
