 G                       C
1. The past that held re-gret
                    G
   O-ver my head is gone
                           C
   These chains are a-shes now
                          Em
   That once were rust-ed on
                 C
   I was a run-a-way
                      G        C/G
   Now I am fi-nal-ly home  |      |
 
 G                     C
2. My mind was a ghost town
                       G
   Haunt-ed by yes-ter-day
                            C
   Un-til Your hand reached down
                       Em
   Pulled me out of my grave
                      C
   In-to the free-dom found
                   G         C/G
   Only in Je-sus' Name |        (I am for...)|

                 G
Chorus: I am for-gi-ven
                   D 
        No long-er lost
                 Em
        Now I am liv-ing
               C             G         C/G
        In the po-wer of the Cross  |      |
 
 G                      C
3. The Fa-ther gave His Son
                     G
   So I could be set free
                          C
   And now the scales are gone
                         Em 
   My eyes can fi-nal-ly see
                          C
   I'll tell the world of all
                       G      C/G
   Je-sus has done for me |       (I am for...)|

        Now I am liv-ing
               C             G         C/G
        In the po-wer of the Cross  |     (Goodbye to...) |

Bridge: And on that Cross, His love held true
                       C                  G
        Through sac-ri-fice, the old made new
                    D               Em
        This life I live, I live in faith
