Dan Schutte

Refrain:
G      Bm7       C              Bm7
I will play for Him on my harp,

C         Bm7             Am7         D
With my lute and ten-stringed lyre
G       Bm7       C                    Bm7
I will greet the Lord with my song;
C         Bm7          Am7 D    G   D - D7
I will sing of the ways of the Lord

Verse 1
G    Bm7          C           Bm7
Good it is that we should sing
    Am7                    G
to honor Yahweh's name
      C              B7   Em 
To thank Him for his love at dawn,
      Am7                          D-D7
His faithfulness through night.
(Repeat Refrain)

Verse 2
G             Bm7          C           Bm7
Great and wide Your kindness, Lord,
       Am7                        G
And fathoms deep Your love
      C              B7   Em 
The wicked heart cannot conceive;
      Am7                    D-D7
the foolish heart will fall.
(Repeat Refrain)

Verse 3
G             Bm7          C           Bm7
The just shall grow as tall as palms;
       Am7                        G
Like cedars they shall stand
      C              B7   Em 
And planted firmly on their God;
      Am7                    D-D7
They shall not break nor bow.
(Repeat Refrain)
