Intro: 4/4 ‖      |      |      |      ‖ 

                 D                 Asus4
1. How great the chasm that lay be-tween us
                G2        Bm             Asus4
   How high the moun-tain    I could not climb
              D                  Asus4
   In des-per-a-tion I turned to hea-ven
                  G2        Asus4    D
   And spoke Your name in - to   the night
                    G                      D
   Then through the dark-ness Your lov-ing kind-ness
                    Bm7            Asus4
   Tore through the sha-dows of my soul
               D                     Asus4
   The work is fin-ished, the end is writ-ten
          G2         Asus4   D       G
   Je-sus Christ, my Liv-ing Hope |     |
 

               D                  Asus4
2. Who could i-ma-gine so great a mer-cy
                    G2      Bm                 Asus4
   What heart could fath-om    such bound-less grace
              D                       Asus4
   The God of a-ges stepped down from glo-ry
              G2        Asus4   D
   To wear my sin  and  bear my shame
                 G                 D
   The cross has spo-ken, I am for-giv-en
               Bm7                Asus4
   The King of Kings calls me His own
               D                     Asus4
   Beau-ti-ful Sa-vior I'm Yours for-e-ver
          G          A       D
   Je-sus Christ, my Liv-ing Hope

                    G2   D              A                Bm
         Hal - le - lu - jah, death has lost its grip on me
         A        G2             D                  A               Bm
         You have bro-ken ev-'ry chain, there's sal-va-tion in Your Name

3. Then came the morn-ing that sealed the pro-mise
                G     Bm7          A
   Your bur-ied bo-dy    be-gan to breathe
              D                     A
   Out of the si-lence the roar-ing Lion

   De-clared the grave has no claim on me
