Angels

     This song requires two guitars, one to play solo and one to play background
     however for most of the songs they play the same thing.

     I don't know of a way to convey the strumming rhythm so try and
      listen to the song on a CD/Tape and mimic it, it's consistent 
      throughout the song

     Strumming only bottom three strings
     1st Guitar - E for 4 measures
     2nd Guitar - comes in on 5th measure playing E
     

                      A   B            E
     The touch of His hand will let me know
                 A      B7      B
     He takes me in and lets me go
                 E              C#m
     If not for love, who would believe?
                  A                         B7        B
     Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, in you and me
     

                         E
     We're lifted up by angels
                      C#m
     Higher than the world
                       A
     Strong enough to leave it
     

     Bound to learn the secrets
                  B7   B
     Angels never heard
                     E
     Close enough to heaven
                   C#m
     Far above the rain
                     A
     Darkness cannot reach us
     

     Let the angels teach us
                B7    B
     Only love remains
     

                        E
     We're lifted up by angels
              A     B            E
     To understand, yet never say
               A           B       B7
     How every plan would fade away
                 E                   C#m
     If not for love, where would we be?
               A                    B7      B
     Ashes to dust, water to rust, eternally
     

                        E
     We're lifted up by angels
                     C#m
     Higher than the world
                      A
     Strong enough to leave it
     

     Bound to learn the secrets
                  B7   B
     Angels never heard
                     E
     Close enough to heaven
                   C#m
     Far above the rain
                     A
     Darkness cannot reach us
     

     Let the angels teach us
                 B7   B
     Only love remains
     

                        C#m    E
     We're lifted up by angels
                      A   C#m7
     Given wings to fly
                      F
     Leave the night behind us
     Gm                  A
     Trust the light to find us
          B7         B
     Even as we rise
     

     Solo
     

     We're lifted up by angels
                     C#m
     Higher than the world
                      A
     Strong enough to leave it
     

     Bound to learn the secrets
                  B7   B
     Angels never heard
                     E
     Close enough to heaven
                   C#m
     Far above the rain
                     A
     Darkness cannot reach us
     

     Let the angels teach us
                 B7   B
     Only love remains
     

                         E
     We're lifted up by angels

     

     Solo
     

     /\ 3D to slide
     

     Again, I don't know of any way to convey tempo or rhythm here so you 
      have to listen to the CD and figure it out
