When He Reached Down His Hand For Me

Chords and lyrics for When He Reached Down His Hand For Me by Johnny Cash

C 
Once my soul was astray from the  
G7 
heavenly
C 
way
 
I was wretched and  
G7 
vile as could
C 
be
 
But my Savior in love  
F 
gave me peace from  
C 
above
 
When he reached down  
G7 
his hand for
C 
me
 
When he reached down his  
F 
hand for  
C 
me
 
When he reached way down for  
G7 
me
 
I was  
C 
lost and undone  
F 
without my God or his  
C 
Son
 
When he reached down  
G7 
his hand for
C 
me
 
I was near to despair when he  
G7 
came to me
C 
there
 
And he showed me that  
G7 
I could be
C 
free
 
Then he lifted my feet  
F 
gave me gladness  
C 
complete
 
When he reached down  
G7 
his hand for
C 
me

What Do I Care

When  
E 
I’m all through if I haven’t been what  
B7

If the  
A 
total isn’t high enough  
E 
when they figure me
 
When  
E 
I grow old if there’s no gray from  
A 
worry in my hair
 
What do I  
B7 
care what do I
E 
care
 
What do I  
A 
care just as long as you were  
E 
mine a little while
 
When the  
A 
road was long and weary you  
E 
gave me a few good mile
 
What do I  
A 
care if I miss a goal be
E 
cause I make a slip
 
I’ll  
F#7 
still be satisfied because I
B7 
tasted your sweet lips
 
What do I  
A 
care if I never have much  
E 
money
 
And some
A 
times my table looks a little  
E 
bare
 
Any
A 
thing that I may miss is made up  
E 
for each time we kiss
 
You love  
F#7 
me and I love
B7

What do I  
A
