I Could Sing Of Your Love Forever was written in 1994. The words and music are by Martin Smith.
I have the chords to the song from Delirious, Songs from Cutting Edge. It's in the Key of F Major with 4/4 time signature.

Wikipedia says,

"I Could Sing of Your Love Forever" is a popular Christian rock and worship song by the English rock band Delirious?. The song's popularity has reached far beyond the band's; CCLI places the song among the 30 most-sung worship songs in the United States of America[1] and has been called a "modern worship classic". According to Martin Smith, the author of the song:
"That song just wrote itself in about five minutes. The same chords the whole way through the song. I mean that's embarrassing really! It was just a little ditty. Did it at church. It was good but I don't think it really blew anybody away. It wasn't like, 'Oh Martin's written the most amazing song!' I still don't really think it is. But yes, that song, that moment changed our lives really. It's been one of the most sung songs in America and around the world. It's crazy really, this little ditty that we don't really do anymore. It's been great."

First off, let's take a look at the song online.



I found an easy chord chart for you:

Verse:
G                               Em
     Over the mountains and the sea,
                              C
Your river runs with love for me,
                      D
and I will open up my heart
                          G
and let the Healer set me free.
                       Em
I'm happy to be in the truth,
                         C
and I will daily lift my hands:
                          D
for I will always sing of when

Your love came down. 


Chorus:
G                         D
     I could sing of Your love forever,
Em                        C
     I could sing of Your love forever,
G                         D
     I could sing of Your love forever,
Em                        C
     I could sing of Your love forever,


Bridge thingy:
Am                   G
     Oh, I feel like dancing - hey yeaah
Am                      G
     it's foolishness I know;
Am                           G
     but, when the world has seen the light,
          C          G
they will dance with joy,
           C       D
like we're dancing now.
 
I like to play this song in the Key of F:
 
Verse:
F                               Gm11
     Over the mountains and the sea,
                              Bbsus2
Your river runs with love for me,
                      Csus
and I will open up my heart
                          F
and let the Healer set me free.
                       Gm11
I'm happy to be in the truth,
                         Bbsus2
and I will daily lift my hands:
                          Csus
for I will always sing of when
                C
Your love came down. 


Chorus:
F(add2)                        Gm11
     I could sing of Your love forever,
Bb(add2)                        C
     I could sing of Your love forever,
F2(add2)                         Gm11
     I could sing of Your love forever,
Bb(add2)                        C
     I could sing of Your love forever,


Bridge:
Gm9                   F/A
     Oh, I feel like dancing - hey yeaah
Bb(add2)                      Csus
     it's foolishness I know;
Gm9                           F/A
     but, when the world has seen the light,
          Bb(add2)          
they will dance with joy,
           Csus       F
like we're dancing now. 

For the intro, I'm playing 4 measures with the following chords, moderately.

FF/ CFA

G/ CFBb

BbF/ CFBb
