Intro and verseG - Gsus
Verse 1I am ashamed conceived in sin Ive always been.
Born in a world where Adams fall corrupts us
Rooted is the seed of death in lifes first breath
The law demands a perfect heart but Im defiled in every part
Chorus Em D/F# C
For only Your blood is enough to cover my sin
For only Your blood is enough to cover me.
Verse 2All this guilt disturbs my peace I find no release.
Who will save me from my crime Im helpless
Behold I fall before Your face in need of grace
So speak to me in a gentle voice for in Your mercies I rejoice
Bridge:C D Bm Em D C
Lord create my heart anew ( Father come and make us wise )
C D Bm Em D C
Only You are pure and true ( Lead us away from our demise )
C D Bm Em D Am
Lord You are the remedy ( For only your blood can set us free )
C D G
For only Your blood can set us free. For only Your blood can set us free
Musical interlude:Am Em D x2

Verse 3 x2No bleeding bird, no bleeding beast, no hyssop branch, no priest
No running brook, no flood, no sea, can wash away this stain from me.
Outro Chorus Em D/F# C
For only your blood is enough to cover my sin
For only your blood is enough to cover me.
I play the main riff with some chorus, delay, and just play it withstandard open G chord, hammering on the sus4 on the B string 1st fret. You
can play it in bar chord formation hammering the sus4 on the G string 5th
fret too. Whatever works best for you...
Since gtr 2 in the verse is a little more subtle and harder to pick out,
Here's the tab (play this under the G - Gsus4 starting on verse 2)
|e|| 3 3 5 (7) 3 |
|B|| 3 3 |
|G|| 2s4 |
(This is played on xylephone too)
This part twice
|e|| 5 7 5 5 10 |
|B|| 8 8 8 5 8 8 8 7 10 7 |
|G|| 7 |
|e|| 5 5 5 7 |
|B|| 8 8 8 5 8 8 8 5 8 8 8 7 |
