Isaiah 45:23

-tabbed by Mike Wojciechowski

I solemnly make this oath--what I say is true and reliable: "Surely every knee will bow to me,
every tongue will solemnly affirm."

G                   C                G
If my prayer be not humble make it so
G                                              D                C
In these last hours if the Spirit waits in check help me let it go
     Em                 G                Bm          C
And should my suffering double let me never love you less
G                           D                  G
Let every knee be bent, and every tongue confess

       D7                       C             G
And I won't get better, but someday I'll be free
            D7                     C       G
'Cause I am not this body that imprisons me

I read the magazines somebody brought
Hold them to my failing eyes until my hands get hot
And when the nurse comes in to change my sheets and clothes
The pain begins to travel, dancing as it goes

And I won't get better, but someday I'll be free
'Cause I am not this body that imprisons me

G E7 Am D7
G E7 Am D7

If my prayer goes unanswered that's alright
If my path fills with darkness and there is no sign of light
Let me praise You for the good times, let me hold Your banner high
Until the hills are flattened and the rivers all run dry

And I won't get better, but someday I'll be free
'Cause I am not this body that imprisons me
