Verse 1:
Em7                  D                       C
   Before I spoke a word, You were singing over me  
Em7               D              C
   You have been so, so good to me  
Em7                 D                          C
   Before I took a breath, You breathed Your life in me  
Em7               D              C
   You have been so, so kind to me  

Chorus:
       Em7            D             C                G
Oh the overwhelming, never ending, reckless love of God
       Em7              D                       C                 G
Oh, it chases me down, fights 'till I'm found, leaves the ninety nine  
           Em7               D                      C             G
I couldn't earn it  I don't deserve it  Still, You give yourself away  
       Em7            D             C                G
Oh the overwhelming, never ending, reckless love of God

Verse 2:
Em7                  D                    C
   When I was Your foe, still Your love fought for me  
Em7               D              C
   You have been so, so good to me  
Em7                 D                  C
   When I felt no worth, You paid it all for me  
Em7               D              C
   You have been so, so kind to me 

Chorus: 
       Em7            D             C                G
Oh the overwhelming, never ending, reckless love of God
       Em7              D                       C                 G
Oh, it chases me down, fights 'till I'm found, leaves the ninety nine  
           Em7               D                      C             G
I couldn't earn it  I don't deserve it  Still, You give yourself away  
       Em7            D             C                G
Oh the overwhelming, never ending, reckless love of God

Bridge:
Em7                          D                            C                      G
There's no shadow You won't light up, mountain You won't climb up, coming after me  
Em7                        D                            C                      G                 
There's no wall You won't kick down, no lie You won't tear down, coming after me  

Em7                           D                            C                     G
There's no shadow You won't light up, mountain You won't climb up, coming after me  
Em7                         D                           C                      G
There's no wall You won't kick down, no lie You won't tear down, coming after me  

Chorus:
       Em7            D             C                G
Oh the overwhelming, never ending, reckless love of God
       Em7              D                       C                 G
Oh, it chases me down, fights 'till I'm found, leaves the ninety nine  
           Em7               D                      C             G
I couldn't earn it  I don't deserve it  Still, You give yourself away  
       Em7            D             C                G
Oh the overwhelming, never ending, reckless love of God
