"Let Us Pray"
by: "Steven Curtis Chapman"
album: "Signs Of Life"
written by: Steven Curtis Chapman"
from: "hwd@ij.net"
(C) 1996 Sparrow Song/ Peach Hill Songs/ BMI


I got close last time, but I think this is closer. Earlier I felt the song
was played in an altered tuning because some of the chord progressions
sounded more open in the recording. Whatta you think?

Also, "You Move Me", by Susan ashton is in this same tuning (CAPO 3). 



Tuning: Double Dropped D --> DADGBD

CAPO 3

VERSE 1:
  G                            Em          
I hear you say your heart is achin'
                          C
You've got trouble in the making
                           Am    
And you ask if I'd be praying for you please
 G                        Em
And in keeping with conventions
                          C
I say here's for good intentions
                          Am                    
To pray lately making mention of your needs
  C                        Em                D
Since we have this moment here at heaven's door
      C          Em             D              Em
We should start knocking now so what are we waiting for

CHORUS:
     C               G
Let us pray, let us pray
     D               Em
Everywhere and every way
       C             G
Every moment of the day
            D
It is the right time
           C      G
For the father above
        D             Em
He is listening with love
         C              D
And he wants to answer us

           G  (Intro)
So let us pray



VERSE 2:
   G                       Em
So when we feel the spirit movin'
                         C                  
Don't take ??     and removin'
                         Am
There is no time to be losing let us pray
    G                   Em 
Let the Father hear us saying
                        C  
What we need to be conveying
                         Am 
Even while the sun is playin' Let us pray
 C       Em		         G
Just because we say the words amen
 C        Em            D              Em
It doesn't mean this conversation needs to end

CHORUS:
       C              G
Let us pray, let us pray
       D              Em
Everywhere and every way
       C              G
Every moment of the day
            D
It is the right time
         C        G
Let us pray without end
        D               Em
And when we've finished start again
        C                       D
Like breathing out and breathing in
           Bbsus2
Oh let us pray



BRIDGE:

        Csus2                              Dm
Let us approach the throne of grace with confidence

          Gm   Am  Bbsus2  Csus2     Bbsus2           Csus2
As our prayers draw us near to the one who knows our need

 Dsus2
Before we even call his name



CHORUS:
       C              G
Let us pray, let us pray
       D              Em
Everywhere and every way
       C              G
Every moment of the day
            D
It is the right time
         C        G
For the father above
        D             Em
He is listening with love
        C              D
And he wants to answer us
           G (repeat) (intro)
So let us pray

In the second verse the lyrics are : So when you feel the spirit moving, pointing prodding and be-hooving. There is no time to be losing let us pray. I may have mispelled but you get the picture. Be hooving means like getting a kick in the rump to get you motivated I think.


smileynumber13 - 2005-11-15

i dunno if this will help but in the music video he has a capo on through the song, though i didn't catch what fret it was...
