[Intro]
Em

[Verse 1]
  Em                          Em
A million dark alleys you can hide in
      Em                          Am
Dig a tunnel to the center of the earth
   C                               C
Convinced you've got nobody to confide in
                        G                    D
Got you questioning the sum of what you're worth
       Em                               Em
People label you the black sheep of the family
        Em                         C
Come collect upon your prodigal reward

[Chorus]
               C
'Cause you can never outrun
   G
Or go beyond the reaches
       G               Em
Of the long arm of the Lord

[Instrumental]
|Em  |Em  |Am  |Em  |Em  |Em  |Am D|

[Verse 2]
                 Em                             Em
And I've been ashamed, I've been humbled and forgiven
          Em                              Am
I've been chastened by my Father's loving hand
     C                               C
But still, it comes and goes with my evil
            C                          D
It seems to constitute the nature of a man
       Em                            Em
But forgiveness is as close as my confession
       Em                   C
And my sin amputated by His sword

[Chorus]
             C
'Cause I can never outrun
   G             Em
Or go beyond the reaches
       C               Em
Of the long arm of the Lord

[Instrumental]
|Em  |Em  |Am Em |

[Verse 3]
      C              C
If He gave to me all that I deserve
Em                     Em
This could be my final breath
            C
But with compassion in His eyes
     C
He's drawing me home
Am             D                       Em   Em   D
Into His arms, into His tender arms of re--------st
          Em
(Into the arms of the lord)

[Instrumental]
|Em  |D  |D  |Am  |A  |C  |C  |D  |C D |Em |Em |
                                      Fire
|Em  |

[Verse 4]
Am        Em                          Em
There are pagans at the corners of creation
       Em                             Am
Making light of the salvation that we know
           C                              C
And with a small, narrow mind I give them over
       C                           D
To the passion of the Godless seed they sow
        Em                            Em
But, in truth, we have just as much potential
      Em                         C
To be Godly and perfected by the Word

[Chorus]
                C
Though cause no one in this world
    G               Em
Can slip beyond the reaches
       C                 Em
Of the long arm , of the Lord

[Chorus]
          C
Yeah well no one in this world
    G               Em
Can slip beyond the reaches
       C        D      Em Em Em D Em    D
Of the long arm of the Lo----------or---rd

[Outro]
|Em  |Em  |Em  |G Em |Em Am        |Em  |Em    |Em    |
                  Yeah   Yeah yeah  yeah   yeah    yeah
 Am                           Em
(Reaches the long arnm of the lord)
            Em
Yeah yeah I know
Am     Em
No one    in this world
