Marvin Sapp: The Best in Me

Marvin Sapp
Cover of Marvin Sapp

One of the most popular songs sung on Celebration of Gospel 2010 was Marvin Sapp’s new gospel song “The Best in Me”. He sung it as part of a tribute to Steve Harvey. It’s a simple song with a powerful message. I received a request for this song from a reader. Although I wasn't able to find the entire chord progressions to the song, I think you'll be able to follow along with the video tutorials posted below. They're pretty easy and self explanatory.

Marvin Sapp
The Best In Me lyrics

Songwriters: SAPP, MARVIN L. / LINDSEY, AARON W.

[Talking throughout the song...]

Ebmaj7
He saw the best in me,
D7aug   F/G             Fm7(4)
When everyone else around me,
Bb13                       Ebmaj7
Could only see the worst in me.
[X4]

He's mine and I'm his,
It doesn't matter what I did.
He only sees me for who I am.
[X4]
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/m/marvin_sapp/the_best_in_me.html ]

 Bb13         Ebmaj7
He saw the best in me,
D7aug        F/G  C7   Fm7
When everyone else around me
Bb
Could only see the worst in me.

[Vamp]
He saw the best
He saw the best
He saw the best
He saw the best
The best
The best
The best
The best
The best
The best

He saw the best in me

What did He see?

He's mine and I'm his,
It doesn't matter what I did.
He only sees me for who I am.
[X4]

He saw the best
