Things We Leave Behind

(Capo 3rd Fret) 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 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 (Capo 4th fret) 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 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
