Capo 5th fret

By the Mark

(G) When I cross over, 
I will (D) shout and sing.
I will (G) know my saviour,
By the (D) mark where the (C) nails have (G) been.

Chorus:
By the (G) mark where the (C) nails have (G) been;
By the (D) sign upon His (G) precious skin.
I will know my saviour when I come to Him,
By the (D) mark where the (C) nails have (G) been.
(D) (C) (G)

(G) A man of riches,
May (D) claim a crown of jewels.
But the (G) King of Heaven,
Can be (D) told from the (C) prince of (G) fools . . .

Chorus

(G) From Calvary's mountain,
Where (D) they made Him suffer so.
All my (G) sin was paid for,
A long (D) long (C) time (G) ago . . .

Chorus

I'll (G) know my saviour when I come to Him 
By the (D) marks where the (C) nails have (G) been.
