Under the Grace
Written by Phil Keaggy
From the album Phil Keaggy
Transcribed by Maury Millican (

Notes:  The dominant instrument on the recorded track is
piano, but I have a strong sense that Phil wrote “Under
the Grace” on guitar.  Anyway, the song changes keys after
the bridge.  If you are an expert guitarist, you can find
your way through all the unusual chords (e.g., F#/A#).
Others may want to use a spring-clamp capo on the second
fret (Capo 2) after the bridge going into the last chorus.
What a great song about God’s grace!  Enjoy.—Maury

[Intro]  A	F#m	C#m	E
        La,     la,     la           (repeat)

[Verse 1]

A		   F#m		       C#m	E
I lie awake in the middle of the night again
A		   F#m			C#m	E
I try to make some sense of it all rushing in
A			F#m 
There's so much I feel within this heart of mine
Bm			F#m  E/G#	D/A
I well up inside and my eyes they overflow 
A	E	   A	F#m	C#m	E
For I know it is grace

[Verse 2]

A		       F#m		         C#m  E
The look of love in the shape of your face I have known
A		  F#m			  C#m	E
It speaks of this deep sacrifice you have shown
A			F#m 
And the wonder of it all is I didn't deserve this
B			F#m
I couldn't have planned it so right
E/G#	  D/A    A	E
And so my eyes they overflow
D/A    	    A		E
Let it rain, let it pour, let it go
D/A   A		E
For I know this, yes I know
F#m	E/G#	  D
It is grace


A		C#m	      F#m         D  E
And the hungering heart seeks for its place and a home
And it may tear you apart 
C#m	       F#m	        D   Bm 
When you see what this grace here has done
F#m	E/G#		D/A	A	E	D/A
Fly, 	fly all you 	burdens go fly away
      A	       E	D/A	
It's here I remain 
A	   E	      A
Under the grace, the grace


F		            Am		 G   D/F# G7
It seems there is so little time to make amends here
C			   Am		D A/C#	B  F#  
If not for you, well, then I'm without a friend here

**(Capo option here)

[Chorus 2 without capo]

Oh,     oh,     oh
G#mi	F#/A#	E
	B		D#m	      G#m	  E  F#
And the hungering heart seeks for its place and a home
It may tear you apart 
D#m		G#m		E	C#m
When you see what this grace here has done
G#m	F#/A#		E/B	B	F#	E/B
Fly, 	fly all you 	burdens go fly away
       B	F#	E/B	
It's here I remain 
B	  F#	     G#m    F#/A#    E
Under the grace, the grace

B		  G#m		     D#m	F#
I lie wake in the middle of the night again
