Hillsong United - You Deserve tab

Song: You Deserve (live version on This is Our God album)
Artist: Hillsong United
Album: In A Valley By The Sea
Tabbed by: Luke Marshall- coolhndlke@gmail.com

This is my second or third tab, first in bout 3 years but this is a Great Song! And
are absolutely no tabs for it. Sorry if it’s lengthy, I just wanted to be through.
It really not hard, just repetitive. I watched the YouTube video for verse part just to
exact fingering. I play it with our youth group all the time.
We played it for the opening song of our fall retreat and it was epic! Great when you
harmony vocals, too.
Just comment or shoot me an email for help.

Effects:
Guitar1: good ole distortion, bit o reverb
Guitar2: four count delay at 3/4ish volume/level on tempo a bit faster than songs. Throw
some distortion and reverb. On choruses switch your pickup channel to the neck position
dampen delay. This way you never have to mess with it. Or just flip the delay off,
sounds fine.

optional capo on 4 for droning G-string (don’t really need it, just sound fuller).
for timing.
The 11s and 12s are held for 3 measures each playing 8th notes. The line is fluent I

Verse 1:

Guitar1
                    G#
What is this love, given to us,
                    C#
It saved my life, through selfless sacrifice,
                     G#
Although we fail, the cross prevails,
                    C#
Forgiveness stands, you take me back again,

Guitar2: lead
"what is this love?" at this point the droning on the G isn’t necessary so you don’t
to play it

x3)

Start  at “although we fail”
Any variation of this will suffice. (Think angles and airwaves)

PRE-CHORUS:

Guitar1
Fm              Gm           G#                          D#
You showed me life, you've opened my eyes,
                                    C#
So I give you my praise, Yeah I give you my all,
Fm              Gm         G#                             D#
You showed me life, you've opened my eyes,
                                             Bbm
To the truth that there's no greater love,


Guitar 2
Hard to hear, but can be heard better on live version. Starts right on ‘you’ of “you
me life”.

G----8------------8------------10----------------------10----------------------|
D------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
 Repeat until “there’s no greater love” and hit the Bbm (not vital)


CHORUS:
Both guitars play a sweet melody/ harmony. The higher part may sound off by itself so
be alarmed.
Guitar1 (octaves, more of the harmony)
                   C#           G#             D#
Now in the darkness, God's light shines,
           C#       G#    D#
Christ forever glorified,
      C#                                 G#
So come on, come on, sing out to God,
                Fm          D#         C#
now with all we've got, we live,
                    D#
For you our God

 Right into the intro. Once singing starts go into verse part

Guitar2 (higher octave, more melody) [hope what I did wasn’t too complicated]
Play these while the guitar is playing chords above. NOT THE SAME NOTES AS G1

      “now in the”,          “Christ forever”,             “so come on, come on sing out
god”
      C#,     G#,     D#,    C#,    G#,   D#,    C#,     G#,     Fm,      D#,      C#,

Then straight into verse lick

VERSE 2:
Same as 1st verse on both guitars

                   G#
Salvation's strong, in Christ alone,
                    C#
The Savior King, alone in victory,
             G#
I step aside, give you my life,
                  C#
For you to move, do what you want to do

PRE-CHORUS:
Same as 1st pre-chorus on both guitars

Guitar2 can slide up to play high F#m on fret 8, A string
