Sometimes By Step

Psalm 63/Genesis 15:5-6/Hebrews 12:1-3

 Gno3
[ 4 ]
G	      D/F#		   G
Sometimes the night was beautiful
	     D/F#	       C2/E
Sometimes the sky was so far away
				Dsus
Sometimes it seemed to steep so close
           D7			         Bm
You could touch it but your heart would break
	      C2		Bm
Sometimes the morning came too soon
	       C2              Em
Sometimes the day could be so hot
	     Dsus       D      C
There was so much work left to do
		 Am7
But so much you'd already done

Chorus:
   G	           D/F# /E D
Oh God, You are my God
  C2/E    Dsus   D      G
And I will ever praise You
   G		   D/F#  /E D
Oh God, You are my God
   C/E    Dsus	 D      G
And I will ever praise You
            Em	             Dsus  D
And I will seek You in the morning
       C		         Am7
And I will learn to walk in Your ways
     G			 D/F#  /E D
And step by step You'll lead me
	    C2/E      Dsus      G	 (C2/E  D/F#)
And I will follow You all of my days

Sometimes I think of Abraham, how one star he saw had been lit for me
He was a stranger in this land and I am that, no less than he
And on this road to righteousness sometimes the climb can be so steep
I may falter in my steps but never beyond Your reach

CHORUS

	    Em			Dsus D
And I will follow You all of my days
           Am		        F    C
And I will follow You all of my days
    G/D			  D
And step by step You'll lead me
	   C2/E	     Dsus    D   G
And I will follow You all of my days

vamp:

D/F#	        C2/E	        D/F#   G
     And I will follow You all of my days
