Verse 1:

D                               A

I’ve been on the mountaintop

G

And marveled at the view

D                                    A

I’ve walked through the valley

G

Fearing nothing because I have You

(Bm-A-Bm—A ; Bm-A-G)

 

Verse 2:

I’ve wandered the desert

In green pastures, I’ve lain

I’ve sat beside still waters

But I’ve also cried in the rain

 

Pre-Chorus:

Bm                                    A

No matter what the circumstance

E

I know this much is true

Em                  F#m

In famine or in plenty

G

All I’ll ever need is You

 

Chorus:

D

I choose joy

A

I choose grace

G

I choose peace in all my ways

D

I choose faith

A

I choose hope

G

I choose love for all my days

Bm                         A

I choose kindness, thanksgiving

E

And giving You praise

Em                  F#m         G

I’ll rejoice in You, Lord, always

I choose joy

 

Verse 3:

There’s no place for worrying

If I know right from the start

That You hear my prayer

For peace that heals and guards my heart

 

Pre-Chorus:

No matter what the circumstance

I know this much is true

I can do all things as long

As I find strength in You

 

Chorus:

 

Bridge:  Bm – A – G – A

I choose joy, I choose grace

I choose peace all my ways

I choose faith, I choose hope

I choose love all my days

I choose kindness, thanksgiving

And giving You praise

G

I rejoice, say again, I rejoice

 

Chorus
