Capo 1

E A E A

E A2
As I look into the stars
E A2
Pondering how far away they are
E A2
How You hold them in Your hands
E A2
And still You know this man
E A2
You know my inner most being, oh
E A2
Even better than I know, than I know myself
E A2
What a beautiful God
E A2
What a beautiful God
Bsus E A2
And what am I, that I might be called Your child
A2 Bsus
What am I, what am I
E A2
That You might know me, my King
Bsus E
What am I, what am I, what am I
E A2
As I look off into the distance
E A2
Watching the sun roll on by
E A2
Beautiful colors all around me, oh
E A2
Painted all over the sky
E A2
The same hands that created all of this
E A2
They created you and I
E A2
What a beautiful God
E A2
What a beautiful God
Bsus E A2
And what am I, that I might be called Your child
A2 Bsus
What am I, what am I
E A2
That You might know me, my King
Bsus
What am I, what am I
E A2
That You might die, that I might live
Bsus E A2
What am I, what am I, what am I, what am I

Fade out with intro

Pretty good Jh84, but my friend plays it with the parts that the origional tabber wrote. but I think if you'd like to just play chords than that would work!
