This version is simplified for beginners.

G   C          D            Dsus
Sometimes I believe all the lies
         G             C           D   Dsus
So I can do the things I should despise
G   C     D        Dsus
And every day I am swayed 
       G       C     D   D2
By whatever is on my mind 

G C             D           Dsus
I hear it all depends on my faith 
       G          C   D  Dsus
So I'm feeling precarious 
G        C         D               Dsus
The only problem I have with these mysteries
   G            C    D  Dsus 
Is they're so mysterious 

Em    D                         G
  And like a consumer I've been thinking 
                C              Em
If I could just get a bit more 
             D                  G
More than my fifteen minutes of faith, 
Then I'd be secure 

G             C
My faith is like shifting sand 
Em         D     C2
Changed by every wave
G             C 
My faith is like shifting sand
     Em    D  C2 
So I stand on grace 

C2              G C D, G C D
(Stand on grace)

  [VERSE 2]
G    C          D        Dsus
I've begged you for some proof 
       G      C       D   Dsus
For my Thomas eyes to see 
G            C          D     Dsus
A slithering staff, a leprous hand 
    G           C      D  D2
And lions resting lazily 

Em                D              
A glimpse of your back-side glory 
         G            C           Em
And this soaked altar going ablaze 
        D                  G
But you know I've seen so much
I explained it away 


Waters rose as my doubts rained 
My sand-castle faith, it slipped away 
Em                             D
Found myself standing on your grace 
                Dsus    D
It'd been there all the time
