VERSE 1
  Fm9               D♭2        A♭2                 E♭/G
     Jesus, I've forgotten the Words that You have spoken;
  Fm9              D♭2              A♭2                  E♭/G
     Promises that burned within my heart have now grown dim;
         Fm9              D♭2        A♭2              E♭/G
  With a doubting heart I follow the paths of earthly wisdom;
  Fm9                  D♭2         A♭2           E♭sus    E♭
     Forgive me for my unbelief, renew the fire again.

  Lord,  have    mer-     cy   on           me.

  Fm9                D♭2              A♭2                  E♭/G
     I have built an altar where I've worshipped things of man;
  Fm9             D♭2                A♭2               E♭/G
     I have taken journeys that have drawn me far from You;
  Fm9           D♭2             A♭2          E♭/G
     Now I am returning to Your mercies ever flowing;
  Fm9               D♭2             A♭2          E♭sus    E♭
     Pardon my transgressions, help me love You again.

         Fm9         D♭2            A♭2             E♭
  Like a river of forgiveness, ever flowing without end;
       Fm             D♭              A♭               E♭/G
  So I bow my heart before You in the goodness of Your presence,

  Lord, have mercy, Lord, have mercy on us.
  (Repeat several times and fade)

Jesus, I've forgotten
The words that You have spoken
Promises that burned within my heart
Have now grown dim
With a doubting heart I follow
The paths of earthly wisdom
Forgive me for my unbelief
Renew the fire again
            
Lord, have mercy
Christ, have mercy
Lord, have mercy on me
Lord, have mercy
Christ, have mercy
Lord, have mercy on me, on me

        
I have built an altar
Where I worship things of man
I have taken journeys
That have drawn me far from You
So now I am returning
To Your mercies ever flowing
Pardon my transgressions
Help me love You again

I have longed to know You
And all Your tender mercies
Like a river of forgiveness
Ever flowing without end
So I bow my heart before You
In the goodness of Your presence
Your grace forever shining
Like a beacon in the night
