You're the Power


Intro:      G  [ G A ]  D  D  G  [ G A ]  D  D

D                                 G   Bm  Em
Shining like a beacon through the darkest night
D                                   G
You're the only light that leads me home
D                               G    Bm  Em
Home is where the fire burns to warm and bright
D                              G
Long as I have you, I'll never roam
    Em                       G    A  Bm
Our paths may wander on this walk of life
    Em      G     A 
But I won't walk alone


Refrain:
       
       D                    A        D
Like a blaze of gold at the break of dawn
           Bm         G     A  D
You're the power that heals my soul

When the wind grows cold
        A       D
And I'm halfway gone
           Bm         G     A  D
You're the power that keeps me whole

Repeat Intro

D                           G  Bm   Em
Running like a river to the rolling sea
    D                                G
The waters of your love are deep and strong
   D                              G Bm   Em
My harbor and my shelter you will always be
D                                  G
Even when the storm blows hard and long
Em                     G    A  Bm
While your spirit is a part of me
   Em         G  Bm   A
It gives life to this song.


Repeat Refrain
           
           Bm         G     A  D
You're the power that heals my soul.
           Bm         G     A  D
You're the power that keeps me whole.

Closing:    G   [ G A ] D  D  G  [ G A ] D  D
