Ascend The Hill - How Great Thou Art chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Although we have all heard this song many times, and many places, I would suggest 
listening very closely to
the timing of the chords, and the vocal lines. You can listen to the whole song by 
Ascend The Hill here,

Vocal Line: What Ascend The Hill essentially uses as the chorus, is not what we are use 
to hearing. It just
only the first line, "Then sings my soul" repeated four times. Not to mention it is sang 
differently both
times it's played.

Chord Progression: Although you could leave out all of the D's from the verses, I would 
suggest not. Ascend
he Hill attempts to make this original by changing the timing between chords, as well as 
the chords
themselves. The more you make it easier, the more you simply allow it to be more like 
the original. The
trickiest part about this progression is the short D's. Let's look at the first line 
with count-time:

             1234  1  2     3  4   1  2     3 4   1   2 3 4
O  Lord  my  God!     When  I  In  awesome  Wonder

Now what I have done, is put the number that should be counted as it is sang. If you 
were to listen to the
song and count, "1, 2, 3, 4, 1," etc..., starting with 1 over God, these numbers would 
correspond with the
timing of the words being sang. The reason I point this out, is that in typically songs 
in 4/4--like this
one--all of the chords are stared on 1 and played through 2, 3, and 4, until you switch 
chords on 1 again. If
I was to put Chords above the numbers, it would look like this.

             Em       D            C                  D
             1234  1  2     3  4   1  2     3 4   1   2 3 4
O  Lord  my  God!     When  I  In  awesome  Wonder

Hope you feel enlightened :)

Intro: Em D C D

           Em        D     C            D
O Lord my God!  When I in awesome wonder
         Em                D      C        D
Consider all the works Thy hands have made,
            Em              D        C         D
I see the stars, I hear the Rolling thunder,
          Em              D         C        D
Thy power throughout the universe displayed.

Verse 2
When through the woods, the forest glades I wander
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees,
When I look down from lofty mountain grandeur
And hear the brook and feel the gentle breeze...

             Em   D   C   D
Then Sings my Soul


And when I think that God, His Son not sparing,
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in;
That on the cross, my burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin...


When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart!
Then I shall bow in humble adoration
And there proclaim, my God how great Thou art!

             Em    D   C    D
Then Sings my Soul


Em            D   C           D
   How Great Thou love for us
Em           D    C           D
   You shed your blood for us
Em           D     C          D
   How great thou grace for us
Em             D   C        D
   You gave it all for us



                Em          C         G
Then sings my soul, my Savior God to Thee;
                  D                 Em
How great Thou art!  How great Thou art!
               Em           C            G
Then sings my soul, my Savior God to Thee;
                 D                   Em
How great Thou art!  How great Thou art!
