I Was There When It Happened 
Key of E


B7                    E                  
There are some people who say we cannot tell whether we are saved or whether all is well.

 E                                        A      E
They say we only can hope and trust it is so

 
 I was there when it happened and

     B7               E       A     E
so I guess I ougth to know.

                       B7                                  E
Yes I know when Jesus saved me, the very moment He forgave me.

                      B7                                     E
He took away my heavy burdens, Lord, He gave me peace within.

E                                                              A
Satan can't make me doubt it, its real and I am going to shout it

                    E                   B                E
I was there when it happened so I guess I ought to know.

I don’t care who tells me salvation is not real though the world may argue that

          E                                                       A
we cannot feel the heavy burdens lifted and the wild winds blow 

                    E                    B7              E       A   E

E                                                              A
Satan can’t make me doubt it, it’s real and I’m gonna shout it.

A                   E                   B7               E
