Key of C

[Chorus]
C         G                   F
Do you not know?  Have you not heard?
              G           C
The Lord is the everlasting God,
          G                  F
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
       G                C
He will not grow tired or weary,
G               F
... and His understanding ...
  G                  C
... no one can fathom.   ... He gives
              G           F
strength to the weary and increases
  G            C
the power of the weak.
  G            F          G
 ...          ...        ...

[1st stanza]
Am                       G
Why do you say, O Jacob,
G                  Am
and complain, O Israel,
Am                       G
"My way is hidden from the Lord;
Am                       G
( Why do you say, O Jacob,
G                    Am
and complain, O Israel, )
Am                       G
my cause is disregarded by my God"?
[Chorus]

[2nd stanza]
  Am                     G
Even youths grow tired and weary,
  Am                    G
and young men stumble and fall;
  Am                     G
Even youths grow tired and weary,
  Am                    G
and young men stumble and fall;

[Bridge]

[3rd stanza]
   C        G           F
but those who hope in the Lord
     G                  C
will renew their strength.
         G      F
They will soar on wings
   G                    C
like eagles;             ...
        G       F
they will run and not
G                        C
(not) grow weary,
         G              F      G
they will walk and not be faint.

  • Note: I recorded this song in the key of C, but the chords above are in G. If I hired a real singer it would be better, but in the mean time ... wow, this is fun. All verses taken verbatim from the New International Version of the Word of God - Isaiah 40 verses 27-31.
