                Am              Am/G        Am/F#     Am/F
Well they call me the prophet Jeremiah
             Dm         E7      Am   E7
In the days of our captivity
                Am      Am/G        Am/F#     Am/F
In the thirteenth year of king Josiah
        Dm              E7                  Am
The word of the Lord came unto me

  F                 A7sus4    A7     Dm                E7             Am
Before I formed you in the belly of your mother I knew you
 F               A7sus4   A7                Dm                    E7
Before you came forth from the womb I sanctified you
  Am            Am/G             Am/F#      Am/F
Before this world had its creation
       Dm              E7                    Am
I ordained you a prophet to the nations
    C              E                    Am
Then said I, ah Lord God behold I cannot speak
                  Dm                                   G
Just look at me, Lord can’t you see that I am but a child
  C              E                              Am
The Lord rebuked me, He said don’t you talk that way
                     D     
You’re gonna go wherever I send you
                        Dm                            E7
You’re gonna speak the words that I tell you to say

     Am              Am/G        Am/F#     Am/F
And don’t be afraid of their faces
          Dm                   E7              Am      E7
Just remember my deliverance is near
   Am                               Am/G                    Am/F#     Am/F
Though they may seem amazed at what you’re saying
                 Dm             E7                  Am
Speak the word of My Spirit without fear
   F             A7sus4     A7         Dm             E7        Am
Today I have placed you over nations and over kingdoms
   F              A7sus4    A7
To root up, tear down and destroy
       Dm                                         E7
But later you’ll build and you’ll plant them
                Am              Am/G        Am/F#     Am/F
Well they call me the prophet Jeremiah
           Dm           E7           Am       E7
In the days of our captivity
                Am              Am/G        Am/F#     Am/F
In the thirteenth year of king Josiah
          Dm            E7                  Am
The word of the Lord came unto me
