How To Play

VERSE 1
G          Em        C        D
There sits Simon so foolishly wise
G             C           D
Proudly he's tending his nets
G           Em            C           D
Then Jesus calls and the boats drift away
G                C          D
And all that he owns he forgets
     C             Am      Em
But more than the nets he abandoned that day
    C              Am              Em
He found that his pride was soon drifting away
          C        Am         Em         G
And it's hard to imagine the freedom we find
           C        Am      G
From the things we leave behind
 
 
VERSE 2
G            Em         C          D
Matthew was mindful of taking the tax
     G            C         D
And pressing the people to pay
     G           Em         C         D
But hearing the call he responded in faith
 G                C             D
And followed the Light and the Way
     C           Am        Em
And leaving the people so puzzled he found
     C            Am           Em
The greed in his heart was no longer around
          C       Am           Em        G
And it's hard to imagine the freedom we find
           C        Am      G
From the things we leave behind
 
 
BRIDGE
Em                   Am
Every heart needs to be set free
      Em                          Am
From possessions that hold it so tight
        D                           C            Am
'Cause freedom's not found in the things that we own
          Em                  D
It's the power to do what is right
 Em                      Am
With Jesus, our only possession
 Em                        Am
Then giving becomes our delight
    D                     C          Am
And we can't imagine the freedom we find
          C         Am      G
From the things we leave behind
 
 
VERSE 3
G          Em           C            D
We show a love for the world in our lives
    G           C           D
By worshipping goods we possess
      G          Em            C          D
When Jesus says, Lay all your treasures aside
     G         C            D
And love God above all the rest
        C          Am         Em
'Cause when we say no to the things of the world
   C         Am            Em
We open our hearts to the love of the Lord
          C        Am          Em        G
And it's hard to imagine the freedom we find
           C        Am      G
From the things we leave behind
 
 
[Ending]
     C          Am          Em
And when we say no to the things of the world
    C        Am            Em
We open our hearts to the love of the Lord
          C       Am          Em         G
And it's hard to imagine the freedom we find
          C         Am      G
From the things we leave behind
          C       Am          Em         G
And it's hard to imagine the freedom we find
          C       Am        G
From the things we leave behind
