LIFE AGAIN
Music & Lyrics by Josh McGary

VERSE 1
em
its dark outside
g
And night is long
C D
and desperate tongues abound
EM
my hope is wrought
G
My shield has fallen
C D
The weight has dragged me down
C
But you o Lord have not
G
Abandoned your own shelter
C
You oh lord have not
D G
Released me to these days
C D
You oh lord are calm no matter all the pain i’ve felt here
G C
You oh lord need only speak to calm these
D
waves

CHORUS
C
So now
D
I lay me down
G
On my cross
C
With outstretched hands
AM D
Knowing you can give me
C Em
Life again

VERSE 2
em
The dread of night is calling
G D
As I wait upon the nails
Em G
The only way of knowing
C D
That the love of God prevails
C
Cuz you o Lord did not
G
Abandon your own shepherd
C
You oh lord will not
D G
Forsake me to this strife
C D
In your hands, I wait upon your justice and your mercy
G C D
Death will be my victory and where I find my life

CHORUS
C
So now
D
I lay me down
G
On my cross
C
With outstretched hands
AM D
Knowing you can give me
C Em
Life again

BRIDGE

EM G
and can it be
C Am
That I am freed
EM G
Because of that day
C D
That birthed from pain?
EM G
and can I fight
C Am
to give my life
EM G
To transcend the darkness
C D
And stand in the light.

CHORUS X3

C
So now
D
I lay me down
G
On my cross
C
With outstretched hands
AM D
Knowing you can give me
C Em
Life again

END ON G
