But when I see You face to face

Despite the things I’ve done

Let every accusation fail
    C    G        D
For I am Your’s alone

My Shepherd, Guide and Faithful Friend
   C         Am        D/F#
My Prophet, Priest and King
    G                 C      Am
My Lord, my Life, my Way, my End

Accepting now the praise I bring
