I just wanted to say God Bless! But stop being lazy, and put the words with the notes. Thank you!

From "7by3" Christian Rock band from Lubbock.

music7x3 ... you can't post lyrics - you do read the forums at all? or have you ever submitted a tab?

Wildcats2008 - 2005-04-07

You don't need the words if you know the rhythm of the song.....actually I think the words throw off more people then he helps because the chords aren't always with that exact word or that part of the word....I say you stop being lazy and just learn the rhythm...

stephaniexc - 2005-04-08

excuse the possible ignorance, I've just been learning to play for 6 months or so--the beginning of the song is picked--does anyone know the tab for that? I assume it was picking the A chord but it doesn't sound right to me--

God Bless

Wildcats2008 - 2005-04-08

The intro of the song and the verses are just the chords strummed out one at a time (on the Adoration Album at least) and I guess if you were experenced enough you could strum them and then pick out the piano part but since you're just playing for 6 months the guitar just strums them out one at a time and then of course it changes for the chorus but I can't help out there because I play bass guitar and I'm clueless for strumming patterns and stuff..

Sorry you guys are all wrong, wrong wrong wrong!!!

If you were to hear the song it just has a melodic sound and is just a simple rythm. take care and God Bless.

Aod Amollow - 2005-04-27

The reason the cords sound wrong is because it not just a normal A and D.
The E however is the same.
I Don't no the proper names, but anyway...
The A is 5x7600
The D is 5x7750
The E is 022100
and on the first verse there just strumed once each time, and the rest is just strumed slowly.

Aod Amollow - 2005-04-27

oh yea and its easier to hold the first string and mute the second with you're thumb.

Aod Amollow - 2005-04-27

Oh, im sorry, they had the capo on the first fret.

Jailyong - 2005-05-04

How do you strum the guitar to this song? Does anyone know how to strum the guitar to this song? Please help~!!!!!

Jailyong - 2005-05-04

I still dont get how to strum slowly, what does that mean?

Aod Amollow - 2005-05-13

its sorta hard to show someone that over the internet
youll just have to listen to the best of your ability

Aod Amollow - 2005-05-13

but it statrts out with one strum to each chord

ratd - 2005-08-14

dudes, i have the album and the booklet gives the chord names to them. you're right on the first verse the first time all the chords are supposed to be strummed once, then the rest is all slowly strummed. the chords you put in are all right except in the verse it is A/C#m in the beginning, but the A, E, D pattern is right on, this is a great song

ladyavalon - 2005-09-18

yeah but hey that A/C# is near totally impossible to pull off! especially for an amateur like me! :)

buffallo - 2005-11-06

Hey ya'll actually the absolute best way to play this song is with a capo with the cords in G... Or if you wanna take it up a half key to Bb capo on third.... play it with these chords on guitar....their the same notes it just sounds better....

G/B C2 D
Iím forgiven because you were forsaken
G/B C2 D
Iím accepted you were condemned
G/B C2 D
I'm alive and well your Spirit lives within me
C2 D G
Because you died and rose again

G C2
Amazing love how can it be
G D2 D Dsus D
That you my king would die for me
G C2
Amazing love I know itís true
G D2 D Dsus D
It's my joy to honor You
C2 D G
In all I do I honor you

Thats about it I added the lyrics in too.....the bridge is just you are my king repeated with just strumming the g and c its pretty easy so you can get the hang of it.....its always easier to capo if you play acoustic cause all those a/c# kinda hurt after a while and are a pain


buffallo - 2005-11-06

sorry about that above all my chords got crammed together when i submitted it in so you will have to just figure it out

jim4christ - 2006-04-10

Hey buffalo i just want to let you know that tab is awsome, you should submit it but that sounds the best in my opinion, i like it so much i am using all the time now. Its a great version. Be Blessed.
In Christ,

newsboysrock - 2007-09-12

I think the A in verse one is an A-C#

bulletboy - 2008-03-31
