Jesus Be Praised

Brian Whalen


Verse 1:


I think about You, Lord; and what I really want is

                                                                    A                            B

To become a child, a child of one simple thing:  loving my King


I think about the cross and what You did for me and

                                                                                        A                     B

How IÕve been redeemed, redeemed from my life of sin; praises begin


Bridge 1:

            F#m     A                   B         F#m     A                   B

Who is like You, my Lord; Who is like You, my Lord


Verse 2:


I think about the light they didnÕt recognize

                                                                       A                                  B

You came as a man, a man of flesh and of bone denied by Your own


You came full of grace and You came full of truth that

                                                                                             A                                  B

Came to me through You, through You enduring such pain; a man who was slain


Bridge 2:

F#m             A                          B

What was it like for You, my Lord

F#m                                       A                                        B

King of all kings, You were bloodied and beaten and scorned

         F#m                                  A                                           B             A                       B

Your throne in the shape of a cross and a crown made of thorns, I remember, my Savoir




     B                                                     A                                       D

Be praised, You who lived Your life sinless, gave Yourself to forgiveness

                                        G                                                    A

While You suffered my shame, You who lived Your life blameless

                            D                                                    G

Rose again, overcame death, You who will come again



     B                 A                 E                            G    A

Be praised, be praised, be praised, Jesus, be praised (repeat)
