Words and music: Norman J. Clayton If We Could See Beyond Today Capo: 1st fret (Bm/D)-(C#7)-(F#m)-(Am)-(Am6) If (E)we could see beyond today as (Bsus4)God can (B)see, If (F#m)all the clouds should (B7sus4)roll a(B7)way, The (A/E)shadows (E)flee; O'er (Bm/D)present griefs we (C#7)would not fret, Each (F#m)sorrow we would (Am6)soon forget, For (E)many joys are (C#m)waiting (F#)yet (E)For (B)you and (E)me. (E)-(Fdim)-(F#m)-(Am)-(Am6) If (E)we could know beyond today as (Bsus4)God doth (B)know, Why (F#m)dearest treasures (B7sus4)pass a(B7)way, And (A/E)tears must (E)flow. We'd (Bm/D)know that darkness (C#7)leads to light, And (F#m)dreary days will (Am6)soon grow bright; Some (E/B)day life's wrongs will (C#m)be made (F#7)right, (E/B)Faith (B)tells us (E)so. (E)-(Fdim)-(F#m)-(Am6)-(E/B)-(F#9)-(E/B)-(C7) If (F)we could see, if we could know, we (Csus4)often (C)say, But (Gm)God in love a (C7sus4)veil doth (C7)throw A(Bb/F)cross our (F)way; We (Cm/Eb)cannot see what (D7)lies before, And (Gm)so we cling to (Bbm6)Him the more, He (F/C)leads us till this (Dm)life is (G9)o'er; (F/C)Trust (C7)and o(F)bey. (F7/Eb)-(Bb/D)-(Bbm/Db) He (F/C)leads us till this (Dm7)life is (G9)o'er; (F/C)Trust (C7)and o(F)bey.(G/F)-(F).Home
