Lord Have Mercy
Michael W Smith
Another silly praise song. Wish I was good enough to tab some metal stuff so I didn't like such a wuss... Verse 1 Em7 C G Dsus4 C Jesus, I've forgotten the words that You have spoken; Em7 C G D Promises that burned within my heart have now grown dim. Em7 C G C With a doubting heart I follow the paths of earthly wisdom. Em7 C G Dsus4 D Forgive me for my unbelief; renew the fire again. Chorus Am D7 Gsus4 G G C7M Em Lord have mer - cy, Christ have mer - cy Am D7 Gsus4 G C7M Dsus4 D Lord have mer - cy on me. Am D7 Gsus4 G G C7M Em Lord have mer - cy, Christ have mer - cy Am D7 Gsus4 G C7M D G Lord have mer - cy on me. Verse 2 Em7 C G Dsus4 C I have built an altar where I worship things of man, Em7 C G D I have taken journeys that have drawn me far from You. Em7 C G Dsus4 C Now I am returning to Your mercies ever flow ing, Em7 C G Dsus4 D Pardon my transgressions, help me love You again. Chorus Verse 3 Em7 C G Dsus4 C I have longed to know You and Your tender mer - cies Em7 C G C Like a river of forgiveness ever flowing without end Em7 C G C I bow my heart before You in the goodness of Your pres ence; Em7 C G C Your grace forever shining, like a beacon in the night.
