All Creatures
by Josh Garrels

No Capo
Key: Em


Em   G        D2     A2      Em
All creatures of our God and King
     G        D2       A2     Em
Lift up your voice and let us sing
  G          D2    A2    Bm
O Praise Him!   O Praise Him!

(Same chord progression continues all the way thru... You'll just have to listen 
to the song for the full rhythm.)

Em                      G
Creation sent to me the centipede to witness the
    D2                    A2
complexity of one hundred legs that were moving
    Em                    G
unexpectedly, ironically, just as they were meant to be,
        D2                        A2
they're fearfully and wonderfully made;
            Em                   G
An organism praised in circadian rhythms:
             D2                         A2
the sun will rise and then the sun will set, and then the sun will rise 
 Bm                                                     C
again, so lift up your head! this is life: not a static object preserved and 
   Em                           G
displayed like a relic from the dead
              D2                    A2
You are not a fruitless tree with a rootless disease
Em                       G
growin' in a bucket in a rich man's home
D2             A2
next to the TV tamed and alone
Em                       G
learnin' to lust for the things you don't own
        D2                      A2
like an arm-chair warrior who's been dethroned,
Bm                                                             C
declawed and fixed, fighting for you life with unattended slit wrists.
Em                           G
Don't let your name get intermingled with the number
          D2                      A2
cause its time to awaken from the devilish slumber,
   Em                G
to freely follow the Forerunner
             D2                       A2
to the fatherland and rally round the renaissance man
        Em                             G
and the wisdom of His ways and all the work of His hands
      D2                 A2
catch come as catch can      
concentrating on the good words of the Son of Man,
the plan is to withstand the demands of a confused oppressor:
Em                     G
     a wolf in sheep's clothes
                D2                        A2
with monotonous lectures and questionable gestures
        Em                 G
unequal measures  cultural pressures
              D2                    A2
and synthetic textures, force-fed instead of the most beautiful
Em           G             D2                 A2           
architecture   of our long lost, forgotten origins:
Unseen fiber in the blood of my King
And that old rock where we confessed our sins
Em          G
Oh, my God, fellow man
   D2                   A2
in this great land they all cry out for
     Em              G
full restoration and this will take patience
    D2                                A2
And this will take the tribes and the tongues of all the nations
    Em              G               D2
and all of creation groans in anticipation
waitin' for the Son of God to be manifest
   I can feel it burnin' in my chest
liberation for the oppressed
         Em                 G                    D2
And it's beautiful like the feet that bring good news...
              A2                Em
Its beautiful like this freedom tune
              G                 D2           A2
Its beautiful like the power to choose... to change
Em                 G            D2
Beautiful like the long awaited rain
          A2               Bm
Beautiful like the healing pains
Beautiful like the holy flames... coming down!

Em   G        D2     A2      Em
All creatures of our God and King
     G        D2       A2     Em
Lift up your voice and let us sing
  G          D2    A2    Bm
O Praise Him!   O Praise Him!
      C        Em
