SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL

CHORUS:
D                      A7
  Something beautiful,    something good;
Em            Em7    A7  D          D7
   All my con-fusion       He under-stood.
G
  All I had to offer Him
           F#7/A    Bm
Was broken-ness and strife,
    G6      D/A       A7              D     G/D    D
But He made something beautiful of my life.

VERSE:
D                  DM7
If there ever were dreams
          D6        Ddim
That were lofty and noble
Em7                           A7
   They were my dreams at the start
        Em
And the hopes for life's best
         Em7          A7
Were the hopes that I harbored
G/D                D
   Down deep in my heart
                        DM7
But my dreams turned to ashes
   D7
My castles all crumbled
   G                 G6
My fortune turned to loss
     Bm         E7         Bm7        E7
So I wrapped it all in the rags of my life
    Em7/A          A7
And laid it at the cross

(REPEAT CHORUS)
