Ok, now that all formalities are aside, here's how to play this song.
There's a mandolin in this song, but hey, let's face it, how many of your
buddies play the mandolin, so I've arranged this for two guitars.  Ok,
capo this first guitar on the fifth fret and leave the other guitar open.
I haven't been able to try it with both as of yet, but both parts sound
good when they are played by themself, so I figure that both together
would give it a nice full sound.  
Here goes:

INTO:		|-------3------|
(all tab	|-0--------0h1-|
relative	|--------------|
to capo)	|----0-----0h2-|
		|-3------------|  PLAY, THEN REPEAT  3x

Now, the picking pattern in this song is really easy, and seeing as how it
would take me forever to tab out the entire song, I'll let you figure it out
yourself.  Just try to so it fingerstyle cause with a pick it's kinda
difficult.  Listen to the CD and you'll get it.  Have fun!
*capo on guitar on the 5th fret and leave another open, the chords in ()'s
at to be played open, while the other's are to be relative to the capo.

   (Am)Em   (Dm)Am  (Am)Em
Oh refuge   of my   hardened heart
   (Em)Bm  (Dm)Am  (Am)Em
Oh fast pursuing   lover come
   (G)D   (E7)B7  (Am)Em
As angels dance   around Your throne
   (C)G    (F)C     (C)G      (C/B)G/F#
My life by captured fare You own

Not silhouette of trodden faith
Nor death shall not my steps be guide
I'll pirouette upon my grave
For in Your path I'll run and hide

   (G)D    (Fadd9)Cadd9  (C)G  
Oh gaze of love so       melt my pride
(C/B)G/F#  (Am)Em  (Dm)Am  (G)D      (E7)B7
That       I may   in Your house but kneel
    (Am)Em  (F)C   (C)G  (F)C  (C)G
And in my   brokenness   to    cry
       (F)C    (G)D  (C)G  
Spring worship unto  Thee

When beauty breaks the spell of pain
The bludgened heart shall burst in vain
But not when love pointed king
And truth shall Thee forever reign

[Repeat Chorus]

Sweet Jesus carry me away
From cold of night and dust of day
In ragged hour or salt worn eye
Be my desire, my well spring lye

[Repeat Chorus 2x]
       (F)C    (G)D   (Am)Em
Spring worship unto  Thee
       (F)C    (G)D   (C)G
Spring worship unto  Thee
