rockin_4_Christ - 2005-04-20

dude, awsome job, it sounds perfect, its a great song with alot of meaning, thanks so much.

brazilsoccer03 - 2005-04-21

Here is how you play A2


c82cj - 2005-04-22

Brazil is right on the A2 but the tab is great!!

Kuhn_dog11 - 2005-04-22

Isnt the A2 I have on this tab right?

Daantje - 2005-04-25

@Brazil: It's exactly the TAB........

KutlessRocks842 - 2005-04-25

Great job on this tab

c82cj - 2005-05-02

kuhn dog yours is actually the right way to play A2 sorry I was'nt paying attention.

shred/dan - 2005-05-03

Sweetness!! Well done Tab, maybe even.......Perfect!!!

m3dmastermind - 2005-05-04

Actually A2 is played:


JasonD - 2005-05-05

People. The original tab had the A2 correctly. So what's the big fuss about the A2 .... Also, hasn't anyone ever seen the label at the top of webpage. It has a LIST AND PICTURES for all of you who don't know what an A2 chord is --- I suggest going there before you start posting questions on this guys tab ..... good job by the way.

Kuhn_dog11 - 2005-05-07

Thanks guys!

Uejji - 2005-05-07

You did an awesome job on this tab, Kuhn dog, but I would like to humbly offer an addition that you missed? couldn't figure out? It's hard to really make out and I've had to listen really closely to my speakers for the past half an hour just to get this pretty much down.

The guitar part you have for the intro and verse is for guitar 1, played in the right channel. The following is also for the intro/verse. Each note takes the same beat as each strum of guitar 1.

Guitar 2: Left channel


I'm not exactly 100% sure on this. If you want to hear for yourself, just cut out the bass, direct everything to the left speaker and listen closely. I hope this helps out.

Uejji - 2005-05-07

My bad. Those 9s that I put on G should be on D.

Kuhn_dog11 - 2005-05-15

Ya thats good but I think both can work, thanks!

ryan_grooms22 - 2005-05-28

it's awesome i am going to tab it myself
god bless

Techguitarman - 2005-06-11

i am the only one hearing this??!?!?...after the 4 B's to start off, they go to a D power chord twice then the A twice then to the C#m's and so forth. it's not 4 straight A's


coolkid27 - 2005-06-13

wow, this is an awesome tab, kuhndog is my hero.

Kuhn_dog11 - 2005-06-15

I do what i can

Phonix - 2005-07-26

Phonix - 2005-07-26

Thx alot! been looking everywhere! excellent piece of tab =) keep rocking 4 God!!!!!!!

kutlesstrongtwr - 2005-08-04

it should be a full B at the beginning, listen for the high note on the B string

kutlesstrongtwr - 2005-08-05

you're all wrong hahaha, just kidding

check out the other version of the song it sounds more like the CD

Kuhn_dog11 - 2005-08-06

This is the acoustic version on the song dude.

dv8_jsm - 2005-08-17

Further your walk in him, for the more you walk, the faster you will run to him.
God Bless,

Nojanator - 2005-08-21


This is AWESOME!!!! PERFECT JOB!!!!! I'm glad you did this, it's one of my favorite songs by Kutless! I'm glad you got it out fast and right!!!!



#1Kutlessfan - 2005-09-05

hey i need some help, does anyone happen to know what the strummin pattern to this song is, ive been tryin to pick er out so if anyone can help me out any i would really appreciate it

farfromhim - 2005-10-23

Ryan(guitar II) uses bar chords to play his part.

Undignified07 - 2005-11-25

this all looks great, i was just sitting here playing along and it all sounds correct to me...awesome job man

RKfan1 - 2005-12-09

Nice tab! I love this song!

Azulaz - 2006-01-12

Intro/verse doesnt sound quite right, mainly this part,


But besides that its Great.

admbear - 2006-02-17

Amazing song, well tabbed! I love this album. Check out The Everglow by Mae and Nothing Is Sound by Switchfoot. Two more amazing albums.

God bless


JESUSFReaK301 - 2006-03-14

look, if you want to watch these guys, go to

it has the music video, but it doesn't always focus on the guitars and all. I love this anway!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

JESUSFReaK301 - 2006-03-14

Opps, sorry about the screen. I didn't think it would do that.

GuiTar duDe 92 - 2006-04-10

nice job dude, its great!!

sold out - 2006-04-13

Great job dude. I think the intro goes like this.

8 8 8 8/9 9\4 4/6 6 6 6 6 6
x x x x x x x x x x x x x x
6 6 6 6/7 7\2 2/4 4 4 4 4 4

2nd time only 6 4x's then 13 13\11 11
x x x x x
4 11 11\9 9

calebs86 - 2006-04-21

For the chorus are those chords played just one time each or do u play each one a few times then the next one?

Kuhn_dog11 - 2006-04-22

Each is chord shown is each strum.

Ridiculous - 2006-05-05


Karr - 2006-05-11

I am a new guitarist, is there any way to play the 13-11 and 11-9 easier closer to the top of the guitar

PowerChordguy07 - 2006-05-26

Sweet dude thanx for makin this I've been dyin to leanr this song and this really helps! peace out

earfejj - 2006-06-01

awesome job on the tab, now my friends and I can finally play this song on youthgroup

JESUSFReaK301 - 2006-07-09

ok, this is kinda a quick thing that i thought kinda sounded right. On the pre-chorus, you go from F# to G# to A2. I think it sounds right playin:

F# A F# A2

so, basically, with the words, it goes like this:

F# A
I go running to your mountain
F# A2
Where your mercy sets me free

I think thats right, but as i said before it was quick and i did it without any volume and with a dodgy guitar, lol :-b

Anyway, awesome song and for an acoustic version, unbeatable!!
Rock on dude for Christ!!

Fenderuser91 - 2006-07-12

Does anyone know the Bass part to the song?????

Third_Day_Rocks - 2006-07-18

If you want the correct chords and intro tab of this song just go to Or just go to the tab requests forum, under worship together new song cafe and I posted the link to the video.

DuelistStrings - 2006-07-23

The Intro Flows long The Lines of

That's the Simple Intro, The real one Involves a Capo and Some Chords
God Bless You All

DuelistStrings - 2006-07-23

The Bass Intro Goes Like This:
G -------|-------|-------|-------:|
D -------|-------|-------|-------:|
A -------|-------|-------|-------:|
E 2-~-~-0|4-~-~-~|2-~-~-0|4-~-~-~:|
Thats The Intro For The bass. It's all a 4/4 Beat

DuelistStrings - 2006-07-23

The Real Intro should Go like this with Capo.

Bass is Still the Same.
If u dont have a Capo, Just Leave Your Guitar In its Standard Tuning But Just Play those Numbers Two Frets Higher, Meaning if it says 2, Plat it on the $th Fret. But If u have a capo, put it on the second fret.
God Bless You All Alwayz and for ever

Twigguitar_1992 - 2006-10-14

i don't mean 2 go agenst evry 1 but i think that intro goes
e|-----------------|-----------------PLAY ---------4-4-2-2--------
G|-4-4-----2-2-----|-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-TO -1-1-1-1-4-4-4-4--------
A|-----------------|-----------------THEN ------------------------
E|-----------------|-----------------PLAY ------------------------

Twigguitar_1992 - 2006-10-14

I Jam For God - 2006-11-07

Andrew S. - 2006-11-12

The chords for the verse and intro are B, Asus2, and C#m
In the chorus after the first Asus2 there is a B chord played then at the last Asus2, its not Asus2 its just A
