I fell in love with this song as soon as I got the CD. 
The lyrics are so powerful. I'm pretty sure this chording is right. 
I found any chords below capo 4 are just too difficult to perform smoothly and as clean sounding. 
If anyone has any other suggestions I'm all ears. Thanks. God bless.

Glory by the way of shame

Bear a cross in Jesus' name

Verse 2   
She cheated on him twice, but for fear she never told
She finally confessed, before her heart ran cold
With pain in his eyes, he walked out of the house and drove to town
Bought her a white wedding dress
Came home to her and danced
To the song of forgiveness

Verse 3
If these stories are true
I really couldn't say
But of my own heart I know
It goes much the same
(go straight into chorus)
