Eb      Ab/Eb    Eb              Ab/Eb  Eb    Ab/Eb       Eb      Ab/Eb

I can do all things through Christ   as He strengthens me

 

Eb      Ab/Eb     Eb                         Fm7                 Bbsus,  Bb

But left alone to my designs Iím as helpless as can be

 

Eb                Ab/Eb    Eb          Ab/Eb  Eb              Ab/Eb       Eb    Ab/Eb

So hear this prayer on bended knee       and help me know the truth

 

Eb        Ab/Eb       Eb                         Fm7                     Bbsus, Bb

Light my way and help me see that it all comes back to You

 

             Fm7                           Ab/Bb

Lord, it always comes back to You

 

Chorus

 

              Eb          Ab/Eb            Eb

For I am helpless without Your touch

 

                 Cm2           Gm/Bb

And I am hopeless without Your love

 

    Ab           Ab/Bb            Eb            Ab/Bb

So love me,  Lord I rely on You, only You

 

       Eb             Ab/Eb         Eb

I surrender my will to Your own

 

            Cm2             Gm/Bb

Be my defender and help me to know 

 

               Ab              Fm7     Ab/Bb  Eb

That You love me for Lord I rely on You

 

Heaven hushed as God bent down to listen to my plea

In the stillness Jesus stood and began to intercede

Angels charged with my concern rushed to carry me

To the throne of matchless grace where His mercy met my need

Lord Your mercy is what I need

 

Chorus

     Ab                      Eb/G            Fm7    Bb7           Eb

So take my life as a sacrifice as I bow before Your throne

 

           Ab                Eb/G                      Gsus             G

Be my one desire, a consuming fire as I trust in You alone

 

Chorus    

 

         Ab                Fm7     Ab/Bb   Eb,  (Ab/Eb  Eb, Ab/Eb Eb,)

You love me, and Lord I rely on You (2x)
