INTRO (in 4/4):  |A, E, D, E |A, E, D, D |

VERSE (in 4/4):  |A, E, D, E |A, E, D, D | (x2)
   I think about the waves of time and how they roll across my shoulders
   Thinking no clock is gonna get the best of me
   Minutes threaten through the years to carve wrinkles with my tears
   Across the face with straining eyes to see they're looking for...

CHORUS (in 3/4):  |/C#, D, A, E |/C#, D, E, E |/C#, D, A, E |D, E, A, A |
...The peace that passes all understanding
   In a world crazed with fear
   They say that I am much to demanding
   To want a better place than here
[CHORUS CONTINUES]:  |E, E, D, D |(x4)
   So I'll go unto visions the prophets claim to me
   And I'll dream of Heaven the promise in which I believe

   Outside are dogs and scoffers who mock my very soul
   They steal the joy of the promise I own
   But I will not be shaken from the rock that cleaves to me
   I have searched the world and found there's one thing I need it's...


TAG (in 3/4):  |/C#, D, /C#, D |/C#, D, E, E |D, D, D, D |
   Was made by the Father sealed by the blood
   With the promise of spirit my victory is won

BRIDGE (in 4/4):  |F#m, F#m, D, D |(x3) |F#m, F#m, E, E |
   Won't no lion catch me sleeping no not in the darkest night
   Can I say the same for you
   Can you hear him creeping he's got you in his sights
   Oh what are we to do

   All the world is my Jordan some day I'm gonna cross
   Ain't no one gonna look and say this soul is lost
   So I'll do my best try to tell all the rest
   And when the lion roars I'm gonna hide behind the cross cause it's...
