This Is How We Overcome

 VERSE 1:
Fmaj9        G                Am7
 Your light broke through my night,
    Fmaj9              G  Am7
 Re-stored exceeding joy.
Fmaj9        G             Am7
 Your grace fell like the rain,
     Fmaj9              Gsus4
 And made this desert live.


 CHORUS:
 G          C    F/A  Gsus4   G           Am7   F/A
 You have turned         my mourning into dan-cing.
Gsus4       C    Am7  Gsus4    G          F   G  (Gsus4)
 You have turned         my sor-row into joy.


 VERSE 2:
Fmaj9       G        Am7
 Your hand lifted me up,
   Fmaj9              G    Am7
 I stand on higher ground.
Fmaj9         G           Am7
 Your praise rose in my heart,
     Fmaj9              Gsus4
 And made this valley sing.
