Open Hands



Em C  G  D


 Em                                C                                G                              D

   The sweetest sound      The highest praise    as we’re letting go    of this life You gave

Em                               C                          G                            D

   Our greatest prayer      Our act of faith    is an open hand      Lord have Your way


            C                     G                      D

Take it all  every hope    every dream    every plan

            C                       G                         D

Take it all  every weight    all the shame    and brokenness

          C                 G            D               Em

Jesus I surrender all every victory and loss

            C                G               D                     G       

Take it all   Take it all ‘til all I have is broken hands


Em                          C                       G                           D

   A clenching fist        A life of fear        A burden held     has no place here

Em                                     C                       G                                 D

  ‘Cause You call me now      to cast it all       on the shoulders of     the One who’s strong


(G)                                Em    C

       All I have is open hands


G                                               Em                            C

  I’m not afraid of what I’ll lose     My greatest joy is finding You


           C                 G   D  Em               C               G    D

Take it all   Take it all                Take it all  Take it all

CHORUS 1 with TAG end on G
