I Find Jesus

Capo: 2nd fret
 
[G] I walk in silence [C]when He [G]comes, this feelin'
 
when His [C] spirit leads me [G] on. If a dog should
 
bark and the [C] night is [G] rough, I take it as a
 
[A] sign and climb [D] above. This city to the
 
[G] hill, [C]among the clouds where I can [C] see
 
my Savior [A] now. He's waitin' with His [D] palm
 
to [D7] me outstretched [G]. His mercy is a [D] balm
 
when I'm [G] perplexed.
 
 
Chorus:
 
[G] I find [D7] Jesus in the darkest [G] night 
 
[G7] I find [C] Jesus in the mornin' [G] bright 
 
I find [D7] Jesus in the face of [G] those 
 
whose hearts are [D] singin' with the [D7] Heavenly [G] Host.
 
 
Break:
 
[G] Sometimes when I feel [C] all alone [G]
 
I look [C] a-round and all are [G] gone. 
 
Friends that I [C] rely [G] upon are busy [A] doin' 
 
what they [D] want. I look [G] within and [C] I am
 
[G] told it's Sunday [C] morning in my [A] soul.
 
And there I [D] find a Holy [G] Hall
 
where congre[D]gations heed the [G] call.
 
 
 
[G] And when I lay down my [C] last [G] time and feel
 
a [C] chill run up my [G] spine and recognize
 
my [C] time has come I [G] look [A] around
 
He'll lead me [D] home. He reach His [G] lovin'
 
[C] hand to [G] me and then we'll [C] climb to victory [A]
 
where we'll find [D] kindred spirits [G] there
 
hearts raised in [D] song without a [G] care.
