Living Hope

Written by Phil Wickham, Brian Johnson

Verse 1
                        G                          D
How great the chasm that lay between us
                       C         Em               D 
How high the mountain I could not climb
              G                           D  
In desperation, I turned to heaven
                            C         D       G 
And spoke Your name into the night
                             C                                 G
Then through the darkness Your loving-kindness
                            Em                    D
Tore through the shadows of my soul
                     G                            D  
The work is finished, the end is written
          C               D        G   
Jesus Christ, my living hope

Verse 2 (same chords as verse 1)
Who could imagine so great a mercy
What heart could fathom such boundless grace
The God of ages stepped down from glory
To wear my sin and bear my shame
The cross has spoken, I am forgiven
The King of Kings calls me His own
Beautiful Saviour, I'm Yours forever
Jesus Christ, my living hope

Chorus
         C   G                  D                        Em
Hallelujah, praise the One who set me free
         C   G                  D                    Em
Hallelujah, death has lost its grip on me
                C                    G 
You have broken every chain
             D                          Em
There's salvation in Your name
          C              D        G         (In final chorus, replace G with Em for two lines, before playing G)
Jesus Christ my living hope

Verse 3
                         G                                    D
Then came the morning that sealed the promise
                    C     Em           D 
Your buried body began to breathe
                 G                              D 
Out of the silence the Roaring Lion
                     C                   D            G 
Declared the grave has no claim on me
                         G                                    D
Then came the morning that sealed the promise
                    C     Em           D               
Your buried body began to breathe
                  G                             D
Out of the silence the Roaring Lion
                      C                  D            Em
Declared the grave has no claim on me
          C                 D            G     
Jesus Yours is the vic - to - ry

Outtro
          C               D       Em
Jesus Christ, my living hope
    C                           D      G 
O God, You are my living hope

Phil is singing in Eb key (suitable for male range), I find G (5 keys above Eb) more suitable for the female vocal range.

I Stand In Worship

© 2007 New Creation Church
Words and music by Karen Lim

These are the simplified ukulele chords for this beautiful song. The chords are simple. There is only 1 pattern for Verse and it repeats twice. Same for Chorus. As the alignment of the chords may run, I have bolded the words where there are chord changes.

Verse
              A                                        E
In Your hand are the depths of the earth
              F#m                              C#m
And the heights of the heavens above
   Bm                        A
I worship and bow down
                      D                            E
Kneel before You, my Lord and Maker
             A                                      E   
In Your hand is the breath of my soul
              F#m                                   C#m 
In Your love I stand righteous and bold
      Bm                     A
To honour You, my King
              D                 E
Glorify You, my Redeemer

Chorus
          A
With open arms I stand in worship
C#m
Feel your love's embrace
     F#m                A
In reverence I enthrone You, Jesus
D                   E
Lifter of my head
          A 
With gratefulness I stand before You
C#m
Faithful, loving King
   F#m                  A 
I rest in hope for You are my portion
          D             [E]   A                (F#m if you want to repeat last line)     
With thankfulness, I sing

These are my recommended fingering positions for the chords. A and D are not shown as they are simple, and you should have memorised them!

All Of You

© 2017 New Creation Church

One of the Church's latest songs from the Encounter album. The original key in the video below is in A key (which is probably better suited to the male's voice). But since I'm female, I find the F key most comfortable for me (the key in blue). As a compromise, I have also included the G key in brackets (the key in green). As usual, the layout may run so you should strum around the bolded words. Cheers!

Verse
F (G)
Laying down my pride, all my past behind
Bb (C)
Stand upon your love unshakeable
F (G)
Lost but now I’m found, turned my life around
Bb (C)
Jesus have your way

Pre-chorus
Bb (C)               C (D)
Let it be, all of You
Bb (C)                       C (D)
None of me, Christ revealed

Chorus
F (G)
Take my life and use it for Your glory
Bb (C)
Take my heart surrendered to Your grace
Dm (Em)                       Bb (C)
Shine Your light in this heart
                                F (G)              Bb (C)
I’m beholding You hereYou are here

Instrumental
Bb (C)    C (D)
Oh......    Oh......
