God Saw My Need

Song Author Don Reid Performer: the Statler Brothers Submitted by: Anonymous

[G]I grew up reciting bible [D7]verses
Committing everyone to memo[G]ry  
But like [Em]Nicodemus when he [C]met the [G]teacher
I could [A7]finally see the pharaohcy in [D7]me   

I have [G]always believed I [D7]believed in
The right things to do and to [G]say  
But like [Em]Paul I was travel[C]ing and [G]blinded [C]    
Till I [G]saw the light the [D7]truth and the [G]way  

In the darkness [C]God saw my [G]need
Saw my sorrow my [Em]lust and my [D7]greed
Just one [G]touch of His [C]hand I was [G]free
In my darkness [D7]God saw my [G]need

I could name you every book in the [D7]bible
And I knew all the pretty words it took to [G]pray
But like [Em]Zacchaeus I was [C]short on things that [G]mattered
Still the [A7]Lord stopped in at my house one [D7]day   

Ah it's [G]a thin thin line between a [D7]good man
And one who knows he´s been [G]saved
Like [Em]Lazarus I´m [C]now a friend of [G]Jesus [C]    
And this [G]body is all I'm [D7]taking to the [G]grave

In the darkness [C]God saw my [G]need
Saw my sorrow my [Em]lust and my [D7]greed
Just one [G]touch of His [C]hand I was [G]free
In my darkness [D7]God saw my [G]need

In the darkness [C]God saw my [G]need
Saw my sorrow my [Em]lust and my [D7]greed
Just one [G]touch of His [C]hand I was [G]free
In my darkness [D7]God saw my [G]need


I grew up reciting bible verses
Committing everyone to memory
But like Nicodemus when he met the teacher
I could finally see the pharaohcy in me

I have always believed I believed in
The right things to do and to say
But like Paul I was traveling and blinded
Till I saw the light the truth and the way

In the darkness God saw my need
Saw my sorrow my lust and my greed
Just one touch of His hand I was free
In my darkness God saw my need

I could name you every book in the bible
And I knew all the pretty words it took to pray
But like Zacchaeus I was short on things that mattered
Still the Lord stopped in at my house one day

Ah it's a thin thin line between a good man
And one who knows he´s been saved
Like Lazarus I´m now a friend of Jesus
And this body is all I'm taking to the grave

In the darkness God saw my need
Saw my sorrow my lust and my greed
Just one touch of His hand I was free
In my darkness God saw my need

In the darkness God saw my need
Saw my sorrow my lust and my greed
Just one touch of His hand I was free
In my darkness God saw my need
