Verse 1

 

G                                 C                        G                       C

A righteous man falls seven times and gets back up for more

G                   C                              D                        D7th

And many men of God have failed and made mistake galore

BMinor                                                       C                    BMinor                C

But we look through a glass darkly and we prophesy in part

BMinor                                      C                                 D                                        D7th

People may point our failures but it’s God who sees our heart

 

Chorus

 

G                           C        G                       C

So step out on the water, do the best you can

G                C                   D                         D7th

And even if you begin to sink Jesus will lend a hand

G                     C        G                    C

Oh step out on the water, take a leap of faith

G                   C               D                             G

And even if you’re overboard Jesus won’t let you sink

 

Verse 2

 

G                             C                  G                     C

A Master gave five talents to his servant and He left
G                         C                     D                             D7th

The servant took the money and he did what he thought best

BMinor                                          C                           BMinor                            C

Oh the Master He came back one day and asked him how it went

BMinor                                                      C                                         D                                 D7th

The servant said, “Well You gave me five but I’m given You back ten!”

 

Chorus

 

G                           C        G                       C

So step out on the water, do the best you can

G                C                   D                         D7th

And even if you begin to sink Jesus will lend a hand

G                     C        G                    C

Oh step out on the water, take a leap of faith

 

G                   C               D                             G

And even if you’re overboard Jesus won’t let you sink

 

Verse 3

 

G                     C             G                     C

God said unto Abraham get thee out of Ur
G                     C                        D                      D7th

To a promised land of mine I’ll give to you for sure

BMinor                                    C                         BMinor                       C

So Abraham packed up his things and started off on a trek

BMinor                          C                                            D                               D7th

To the promised land of God and he never did look back!

 

Chorus

 

G                           C        G                       C

So step out on the water, do the best you can

G                C                   D                         D7th

And even if you begin to sink Jesus will lend a hand

G                     C        G                    C

Oh step out on the water, take a leap of faith

G                   C               D                             G

And even if you’re overboard Jesus won’t let you sink
