Title: Strings in My Heart
Album: Just A Moment

Tabbed by Andy Fischer a/k/a plaid_child

This is an awesome praise song if you surrender yourself to the song like
the band members do on the CD. Essentially, It’s the same 4 chords over
and over again. The tricky part of this song isn’t switching chords; it’s
strumming. It would probably be best if you just bought the CD to figure
that out. All I can tell you is that usually on the “A” and “G” chords,
he hits the Bass a bit before getting to the high notes. (He does that
for just about everything during the bridge-like part…) Also, there’s this
one part where he just bars a whole bunch of stuff and moves his finger
down the fretboard. I guess I’ll call that the “bar thing”. ok? I hope
all that makes sense. Have fun!

Chords:
D:    000232
Dsus: 000233
G:    320033
Bm:   X24432
A:    002220
(pretty easy, eh?)

INTRO:
D G Bm A (x4)

Verse:
(D)         G      Bm             A
When I was made, formed inside my mother’s womb
(D)           G                 Bm      A
My maker’s hands, they made my mind and heart
(D)             G         Bm            A 
In our deepest parts, he placed these strings
       D                    G          Bm     A      (D)
Played by the truth of His word, His spirit brings

Chorus:
D                             G
Lord play the strings in my heart
                  Bm
The ones you set apart
                                                 A
The ones only your hands can play
D                  Dsus  D   G
Lord play the strings in my heart
                A
That echo in my soul
D (strum once)                D     (G)
Lord play the strings in my heart
Bm            A               D     (G)  (Bm)  (A)
Lord play the strings in my heart

Bridge-like Thingimabob:
          D             G       (Bm)  (A)
Set the beating to my pulse
         D             G     (Bm)  (A)
Sending life into my whole
        D             G            Bm    
This miracle we can barely comprehend
     A         D   (G)  (Bm)  (A)    
Yes I’m a miracle
       D         (palm-muted G)  (Bm) (A)
I had 10 tiny fingers
D         (palm-muted G)  (Bm) (A)
I had 10 tiny toes
             D                 (palm-muted G)            (Bm) (A)
What these hands will make, where these feet will walk
                D     (G) (Bm) (A)
My maker only knows
         D                G                  Bm     (A)
In our deepest part our maker placed these strings
       D                     G               Bm   (A)
Played by the truth of His word His spirit brings
          D             G
Set the beating to my pulse
        Bm             A
Sending life into my whole
      D             G            Bm         
This miracle we can barely comprehend
    A          D    (G)  (Bm)  (A)
Yes I’m a miracle
             D      (G)  (Bm)  (A)
Yes I’m a miracle

***After this you play the chorus again, using the “Bar Thing” on the
first line instead of chords. Also, after you sing “that echo in my soul”,
you sing “The ones only your hands can play” again. Is it confusing? It
leads into an instrumental bridge where they let the saxophone go wild.
It’s like this:

(Bm)                A                               
The ones only your hands can play

Instrumental bridge:
D G Bm A (x2 kinda slow)

Chorus x2 (once like before the instrumental, then once like the original.)

(D) (G)

Bm             A              D    (G)
Lord play the strings in my heart
Bm             A              D    (G)
Lord play the strings in my heart
Bm             A              D (strum once)
Lord play the strings in my heart
