This song is played tuned down half a step, but I try to avoid that
whenever possible.  You can cheat by putting a capo on 2 on standard
tuned guitar, but Ill include both ways for those who want to play it
like on the CD.

-----C    Em7   Am             Fmaj7


C   Em7              Am
The morning finds me here at heaven's door
C  Em7              Am
A place I've been so many times before
C   Em7              Am
Familiar thoughts and phrases start to flow
C   Em7        Am                   Fmaj7
And carry me to places that I know so well
C   Em7            Am
But dare I go where I don't understand
C   Em7        Am
And do I dare remember where I am
C Em7             Am
I stand before the great eternal throne
C   Em7            Am
The one that God himself is seated on

And I, I've been invited as a son
Fm
Oh I, I've been invited to come and


C               F
Believe the unbelievable
C                F
Receive the inconceivable
C                 E            Am     G
And see beyond my wildest imagination
F                            C  Em7  Am    C  Em7  Am
Lord I come with great expectations
