EADGBe ++++++ Gmaj7 320002 Asus4 x02230 A9sus4 x05430 capo 1st fret D Gmaj7 D Gmaj7 In the time of my confession, in the hour of my deepest need D Gmaj7 A Asus4 A When the pool of tears beneath my feet flood every newborn seed D Gmaj7 D Gmaj7 There's a dyin' voice within me reaching out somewhere, D Gmaj7 A Asus4 A Toiling in the danger and in the morals of despair. A7 D A Don't have the inclination to look back on any mistake, A7 D A G Like Cain, I now behold this chain of events that I must break. D Gmaj7 D Gmaj7 In the fury of the moment I can see the Master's hand D Gmaj7 A A9sus4 D In every leaf that trembles, in every grain of sand. Oh, the flowers of indulgence and the weeds of yesteryear, Like criminals, they have choked the breath of conscience and good = cheer. The sun beat down upon the steps of time to light the way To ease the pain of idleness and the memory of decay. I gaze into the doorway of temptation's angry flame And every time I pass that way I always hear my name. Then onward in my journey I come to understand That every hair is numbered like every grain of sand. I have gone from rags to riches in the sorrow of the night In the violence of a summer's dream, in the chill of a wintry light, In the bitter dance of loneliness fading into space, In the broken mirror of innocence on each forgotten face. I hear the ancient footsteps like the motion of the sea Sometimes I turn, there's someone there, other times it's only me. I am hanging in the balance of the reality of man Like every sparrow falling, like every grain of sand.
