Broken  Altar Boys

Altar Boys
(From the album Against the Grain)
based on Psalm 51
[G] [Em] [C] [D] [C] [D7] [G]  
[(G)]As I stand before you, I [Em]see who I am:
A [C]man who needs [D]to confess his [C]pride and f[D7]oolishn[G]ess.
Against you only I[Em] have sinned.
I've d[C]one what's evil i[D]n your sight and my [C]heart is [D7]crumbl[G]ing.
And I'm [(G)]broken. [Em]Broken.
To [C]see myself as I [D]really am, a [C]weak, [D7]broken [G]man.
[(G)]Won't you hear my cry, God?
See the [Em]state I'm in.
I [C]know my transgressions [D]are before me,
My [C]righteous[D7]ness is [G]rags.
My s[(G)]acrifice to you [Em]is this broken heart.
It's [C]all I have, it's [D]all I can give, and it [C]won't go [D7]very [G]far...
[(G)]'Cause it's broken. [Em]Broken.
Please [C]heal this broken [D]heart today.
[C]Don't turn it a[D7]way because it's...[G]broken!
(G) Em C D C D7 G (short musical break)
[(G)]Have mercy on me, God.
[Em]Do I stand condemned?
Let me [C]know the joy [D]and thanksgiving,
God, [C]take a[D7]way my [G]sin.
[(G)]I wanna know what it is, God,
To [Em]have that faith,
To [C]keep on runnin', [D]keep on going,
[C]Put that [D7]strength in [G]me.
Cause I'm [(G)]broken. [Em]Broken.
To [C]see myself as I [D]really am, a [C]weak, [D7]broken [G]man.
And I'm [(G)]broken. [Em]Broken.
Please [C]heal this broken [D]heart today,
[C]Don't turn it a[D7]way because it's...[G]broken.
[Em]Broken, [C]broken,
Oh, [D]yes, [C]I'm [D7]brok[G]en.
[(G)]I stand before you now...
