That B/G is actually G/B. Confused me for a minute.


FlamingFish22 - 2006-02-21

jonshin - 2006-02-21

This...
G - D/F# - D/F - Csus2 (2x)


Should be this...
G - D/F# - Dm/F - Csus2 (2x)

rad.5 - 2007-03-20

one way i've learned to play it from freinds is:

no capo

Intro:
G2 C2 D2 D (2x)

Verse:
G2 C2 D2 D
we stand and lift up our hands
G2 C2 D2 D
for the joy of the lord is our strength
G2 C2 D2 D
we bow down and worship you now
G2 C2 D2 D
how great how awesome is he
Am7 C2
and together we sing. . .
Am7 C2
everyone sing. . .

Chorus:
G2 C2 D2 D
Holy is the lord God almighty
Em C2 D2
The earth is filled with his glory
G2 C2 D2 D
Holy is the lord God almighty
Em C2 D2
The earth is filled with your glory
Em C2 D2
The earth is filled with your glory


and so on for the next verse


but this is just me say'n it sounds good, but is only works if someone can sing in G


Puddintane - 2007-05-03

I think the chords in the first post above are mostly correct. But the capo should probably be on the 2nd fret (with standard tuning), as can be seen on www.worshiptogether.com, where Chris Tomlin plays the song and shows the chords used as well as the walk down on the bridge.


Puddintane - 2007-05-03

Duh! I just went back to play along with the CD, and it should be capoed at the 3rd there! He had it on the 2nd at worshiptogether.com. Oh well!
