If Not For The Love Of Christ Song Lyrics and Chords by The Oak Ridge Boys

 

If Not For The Love Of Christ
Recorded by the Oak Ridge Boys
And Jeff Silvey and Tony Wood
C 
Looking back over the  
F 
years that I've known
C 
If I had made this journey  
G7 
alone
C 
I'd be searching for meaning so  
F 
empty 
 
inside
 
If  
C 
not for the  
G7 
love of  
C 
Christ
 
I could pretend that  
F 
I'm 
 
satisfied
C 
Make you believe that I'm enjoying the  
G7 
ride
C 
But the smile on my face would  
F 
be a disguise
 
If  
C 
not for the  
G7 
love of  
C 
Christ
 
The  
G7 
love of Christ oh the  
C 
love of Christ
D7 
No finer treasure no  
G7 
greater 
 
pride
C 
I can't imagine  
F 
living my life
 
If  
C 
not for the  
G7 
love of  
C 
Christ
 
No mercy to cover  
F 
all my mistakes
C 
There'd be no peace through my darkest  
G7 
days
 
And  
C 
no hope that I'd ever  
F 
see 
 
paradise
 
If  
C 
not for the  
G7 
love of  
C 
Christ
Repeat #3
