By Your Side

Music has always been a part of me. I remember my mom telling me that when I was still in her womb, she sang me songs or played music on the radio. I learned to play my first guitar chords at the age of 12 taught by my dad who plays the piano, guitar, accordion, drums...ish, and is a natural tenor. In times of sadness, music has been my solace.  In times of happiness, music has been my delight.

The impact that music has had in my life as a Christian has led me to live by the words, "You ARE what you sing." A lot of bands are labeled as "Christian" but their lyrics and their lifestyles say otherwise. Songs are not just about babbling out lyrics to a tune, it is who you are.

I was listening to K-Love Christian Radio the other night, and one song kept ringing in my ears; the song By Your Side by Tenth Avenue North. It struck me that a lot of people, even Christians, don’t fully grasp the meaning of grace—God’s grace.  The Bible clearly states that God LOVES you (John 3:16), His perfect Grace is all that you need (2 Cor. 12:9) and is freely given (Romans 6:23b), a gift!

Why are you looking for love? Why are you earning grace? Why are you still searching as if I’m not enough?

By Your Side Chords & Lyrics MP3
Tenth Avenue North

Key: G
Intro: G   Em   D   C

Verse 1:
Why are you striving these days?
Why are you trying to earn grace?
                     D                                    C
Why are you crying?  Let me lift up your face
Just don’t turn away

Verse 2:
Why are you looking for love?
Why are you still searching as if I’m not enough?
To where will you go child?
Tell me where will you run?
To where will you run?
                   Em                      C
Cause I’ll be by your side wherever you fall
           G                   D
In the dead of night whenever you call
        Em                               C                            G
And please don’t fight these hands that are holding you
                 D                      G  
Yeah My hands are holding you

Verse 3:
Look at these hands, and My side
They swallowed the grave on that night
                                     D                                C
When I drank the world’s sin so I could carry you in
                    G                            D
And give you life, I wanna give you life
          D   Em
Cause I, I love you
    C                D
I want you to know
      D    Em
That I, I love you
      C               D
I’ll never let you go
