The Love of God

Ephesians 3:14-21/Romans 8:18-39

	  Eb	  Ab/Eb	     Eb    Eb/D Cm2		  Gm6/Bb
There's a wideness in God's mercy I cannot find in my own
	Ab	      Eb/G   /D	  Cm	   Cm2/Bb    Ab2
And He keeps His fire burning to melt this heart of stone
       /Bb Cm         /Bb   Ab		      Eb/G    Gm7 	  Ab
Keeps  me  aching with  a  yearning, keeps me glad to have been caught
         Eb     Fm7sus  Eb2/G Cm  /Bb   Abmaj7     Fm7	  Cm  Bbsus Bb7
In the wreckless  raging  fury that they call the love of God

Now I've seen no band of angels but I've heard the soldier's songs
Love hangs over them like a banner, and with them love leads them on
To the battle on the journey, and it's never gonna stop
      Eb  Fm7sus    Eb2/G Cm /Bb   Abma79 Fm7     Eb  Bb/D
Every-widening their mercies and the fury of His love

Cm /Bb Ab2	   Eb2/G Fm7 Eb Bb/D
Oh     the love of God
    Cm /Bb Ab2         Eb2/G -/F Eb Db2
And oh,    the love of God
	    Ab Bb/Ab  Ab-Bb/Ab  Ab-Bb/Ab  Ab-Bb/Ab
The love of God

Joy and sorrow are this ocean and in their every ebb and flow
Now the Lord a door has opened that all hell could never close
Here I'm tested and made worthy, tossed about but lifted up
         Eb     Fm7sus  Eb2/G Cm  /Bb Abmaj9     Fm7	 Cm  Ab
In the wreckless raging fury that they call the love of God
   Eb    Fm7    Ebmaj7/G Cm /Bb  Abmaj7 Fm7sus    Eb2
