"MY JESUS"

(drop D tuning) - (Simplified) - Dsus2

Verse 1

I’m (Em9) sick and tired of (G6sus2) letting these (A9) demons walk all (Bm) over me. (Bsus2)

(Em9) Cloudin’ my eyes with their (G6sus2) doubts and their (A9) lies ‘bout what You (Bm) planned for me. (Bsus2)

(G) I’m a mess (Asus2) without You, it’s (Bm) plain to see,

My (G) only chance that (Asus2) I will last is holdin’ (Bm) to Your keys, I see!

Chorus

(Bm) I’ve (A) tried and I’ve (G) failed,

Through many (A) obstacles (Bm) trailed.

There’ve been (A) times when I’ve (G) bailed

And fallen (A) short of Your (Bm) will.

But I’ll (A) yield and say,(G) “Yes!”,

Not 'cause of (A) any good(Bm)ness

I pos(A)sess in this (G)flesh,

But 'cause I (A) love my Je(Bm)sus.

Verse 2

(Em9) I choose this life,

And (G6sus2) I know the (A9) price (Bm) all too well.

The (Em9)glares of ice, their (G6sus2) double-bladed (A9) knife,

A dark and (Bm) dampened cell.

Some (G) blood will be lost, but (A) You went to the cross

And (Bm)bled for me,

So (G) why should I fuss

When (A)I hear ‘em cuss out what You (Bm) said to me?

Oh Yeah...

Chorus

(Bm) I’ve (A) tried and I’ve (G) failed,

Through many (A) obstacles (Bm) trailed.

There’ve been (A) times when I’ve (G) bailed

And fallen (A) short of Your (Bm) will.

But I’ll (A)yield and say,(G) “Yes!”,

Not 'cause of (A) any good(Bm)ness

I pos(A)sess in this (G)flesh,

But 'cause I (A) love my Je(Bm)sus.

Soft Chorus

Bm) I’ve (A) tried and I’ve (G) failed,

Through many (A) obstacles (Bm) trailed.

There’ve been (A) times when I’ve (G) bailed

Fallen (A) short of Your (Bm) will.

But I’ll (A) yield, say (G) “Yes!”,

Not 'cause of (A) any good(Bm)ness

I pos(A)sess in this (G) flesh,

Just 'cause I love my Jesus.

Chorus 2

I’m (Bm) going (A) in for the (G) kill,

I see a (A) fierce battle (Bm)field,

The skill(A) needed to (G) deal

The greatest (A) damage to (Bm) Hell.

I’ve been (A) filled, I’ve been (G) blessed

With the di(A)scipleship (Bm) zest

Welling (A) up in this (G) chest

To do my best for (Em) Jesus.

Oh for Jes(Bm)us...

Ending

Em Bm

Do my best for (Em) Jesus

(Bm)

Cause I love my Je(Em)sus

Yeah (Bm)

I love my Jesus!
