I Can't Even Walk

C      G                  C     G
Well I thought number one would surely be me
  C                                   G
I thought I could be what I wanted to be
                                          Em
I thought I could build on life's sinking sand
      G                           D          G
But I can't even walk without You holding my hand


Chorus:
  C                           G       C  G
I can't even walk without you holding my hand
    D7                          G        C   G
The mountain's too high and the valley's too wide
C                G         C  G
Down on my knees I learned to stand
       G      C   G                D          G
Lord I can't even walk without You holding my hand


Well I thought I had done a lot on my own
I thought I could make it all alone
I thought of myself as a mighty big man
But I can't even walk without You holding my hand

Chorus

I think I'll make Jesus my one and my all,
From now on when I'm in trouble, only His name I'll call
If I can't trust Him I'll be less of a man
'Cause I can't even walk without You holding my hand.

Chorus

G                                         G7
I thought that number one would surely be me
  C                                   G
I thought I could be what I wanted to be
                                B7             Em
I thought that I could build on life's sinking sand 
      G                           D7         G
But I can't even walk without You holding my hand

CHORUS
       C                                      G
Lord I can't even walk without You holding my hand
    D7                          G            G7
The mountain’s too high and the valley’s too wide  
C                B7           Em
Down on my knees I learned to stand
       G                           D7         G
Lord I can't even walk without You holding my hand
 

I thought I had done a lot on my own
I thought I could make it all alone
I thought of myself as a mighty big man
But I can't even walk without You holding my hand
  

I think  that I'll make Jesus  my all
When I'm in trouble  on His name I will call
If I don't trust in Him  I'd be less than a man
For I can't even walk without Him holding my hand
