[verse 1] 
[E]take me as I am
[C#m]I lay down all I thought I should be
and I g[A2]ive up my walls of pride,
hopin[(A2)]g love w[-]ill fi[E]nd me
[E]take me as I am
[C#m]never wanted to need Your love,
so al[A2]one and afraid to fall,
prayi[(A2)]ng love w[-]ill fi[E]nd me
E - A2 G#m6 - F#m4,7
And can it be- that You love me this way?
You never ask me to b[E]e more [-]than I[A2] could be
G#m6 - F#m4,7 C#m F#m4,7 - A2
No more trying to be someone, and can it be
C#m F#m4,7 - A2
yeah, and can it be
[verse 2] 
[E]Take me as I am
[C#m]Never good enough to be loved,
so I l[A2]ived with my pain inside,
hopin[(A2)]g love wi[-]ll f[E]ind me
[E]Take me as I am
[C#m]So tired of trying to make it alone,
so I'm t[A2]aking this step of faith,
trusti[(A2)]ng You will fi[E]nd me
[repeat cborus] 
In the mirror all I saw
[G#m6]was that I never measured up
[A2]I couldn't like myself, so
[C#m]how could I understand Your love?
I thought love was something bought-
[G#m6]by being someone I was not
[A2]how could I know all You'd
[B4]ask is that I let You love me?
[repeat cborus] 
(end on A2, precussion, and fade)
