Whenever God Shines His Light    

[G] [C] [D] [G]

Whenever [G] God shines his light on [C] me
Open up my [D] eyes so I can [G] see 
When I look [G] up in the darkest [C] night
Then I know every[D]thing is gonna be al[G]right

In deep con[G]fusion, in great de[C]spair
When I reach [D] out for him he is [G] there
When I am [G] lonely as I can [C] be
Then I know that [D] God shines his light on [G] me

Reach out for [Em] him, He'll be [Bm] there
With him your [Am] troubles,[C] you can [G] share
If you [Em]live the life you [Bm] love
You'll get the [Am] blessings [C] from above [G]

Heals the [G] sick and he heals the [C] lame
Says you can [D] do it too, in Jesus [G] name
And he lifts [G] you up and turns you a[C] round
And he puts your feet [D] back on higher [G] ground

Reach out for [Em] him, He'll be [Bm] there
With him your [Am] troubles [C], you can [G] share
If you [Em] live the life you [Bm] love
You'll get the [Am] blessings [C] from a[G]bove

Heals the [G] sick and he heals the [C] lame
Says you can [D] do it too, in Jesus [G] name
And he lifts [G] you up and turns you a[C]round
And he puts your feet [D] back on higher [G] ground

Whenever [G] God shines his light on [C] you, [D] on you [G]
[G] He is the Way,[C] He is the Truth,[D] He is the Light
[G] Put your feet back, put your feet back......[C]
