This transcription is not my own work; it was contributed to the site by another derek webb fan.

I haven't had a lot of time for guitar recently, but this is one of several tabs that various nice people have sent me. I haven't reviewed or editted them, so no guarantees about accuracy, but I'm sure people will find them useful. If you have transcribed a Caedmon's Call or derek webb song that's not already on this site, please feel free to send it in to be shared here.

The Church (SMASGF studio album version)
Words and music by Derek Webb

Capo 3rd fret

Intro- D  G  A/C#  D  Dsus  D

        D    A/C#    Bm    A
I have come with one purpose
            G   /F# /E  D   A
To capture for myself a bride
        D  A/C#    Bm   A
By my life she is lovely
       G    /F#    /E D      A
By my death she’s justified

I have always been her husband
Though many lovers she has known
So with water I will wash her
Oh and by my word alone

             G    A
So when you hear...
      Bm           G
The sound of the water
          G      A
You will know...
           Bm   A
You’re not alone

                 G         A    D   Dsus  D
'Cause I haven’t come for only you
            G     A      Bm
But for my people to pursue
      G             A       D   A/C#       Bm
You cannot care for me with no regard for her
        G                 A        D  Dsus  D     G    A/C#
If you love me you will love the church

Oh and I have long pursued her
As a harlot and a whore
Oh But she will feast upon me
She will drink and thirst no more

So when you taste...
My flesh and my blood
You will know...
You’re not alone

Repeat chorus

C    G   D  Dsus  D  2x

          C         G       D   Dsus   D
There is none that can replace her
                  C    G       Em7
Though there are many who will try
            C       G            D   Dsus   D
And though some may be her bridesmaids
           C     G       Em   C    G    A
They can never be my bride

Repeat chorus
