artist: phil keaggy
album: phil keaggy
author: words from "the continual burnt offering" by H. A. Ironside
c. 1998 WORD music(a div. of WORD MUSIC)/sebastian music(adm. by WORD
MUSIC)/ASCAP/Loizeaux Brothers
transcribed by: joe carella - carellaj@hotmail.com

there is only one part of this song that i couldn't figure out (or didn't
try hard enough). right after the the second and third verses phil sings
the phrase "quiet suddenly", twice and plays the first part of the main
intro and goes into some other funky chords that i had no luck in figuring
out. i know there is an F in there but i'm sorry, i don't claim to have a
"good ear"; this was just a cosmic accident. if anyone has figured it out
i would simply LOVE to know how it goes so i can can sound as much like
phil as possible (yeah right). so e-mail me or somethin', will ya?

tuning - standard (EADGBE)

<7> - 7th fret harmonics
 /  - hammer-on or pull-off (you figure it out)

           Em          Cmajor7th
(verse 1)  quiet suddenly
                     D/F#
           it may be at the turning of a lane
                    Am7             G/B
           where i stand to watch a skylark soar
                C                   D2sus/A
           from out of the swelling grain
                    Am7                G/B
           that the trump of God shall thrill me
                    C                Em/C#
           with its call so loud and clear
                   G      G/F#    Am7
           and i'm called away to meet Him
                   D/F#
           whom of all i hold most dear

(intro)
           Em          Cmajor7th
(verse 2)  quiet suddenly
                     D/F#
           it may be in His house as i bend my knee
                    Am7                G/B
           that the kingly voice, long-hoped-for
                    C              D2sus/A
           comes at last to summon me
                   Am7           G/B
           and the fellowship of earth-life
                    C                 Em/C#
           that has seemed so passing sweet
            G             G/F#    Am7
           proves nothing but the shadow of our
           D/F#
           meeting 'round His feet


(play first measure of intro)

           quiet suddenly
           F
           quiet suddenly


           Em          Cmajor7th
(verse 3)  quiet suddenly
           D/F#
 it may be as i lie in dreamless sleep
       Am7            G/B               -------------|    listen to the CD.

 that a call shall break my slumber    --------------|
       C                 Em/C#         . 3   .    4  .
 and a voice sound in my ear
  G           G/F#     Am7
 "rise up, my love and come away"
   D/F#                   G
 behold, the Bridegroom's here

           quiet suddenly

           quiet suddenly
