The Color Green  Misc. Gospel

|:[  [Am]/  /  [F]/  ] [  [C]/  /&nbsinlcbsp;[Dm]/  ] [  [Em]/  /  /  ]:|

And the moon is a sliver of silver
Like a shaving that fell on the floor of a Carpenter's shop
And [Dm]every house must have it's builder
And [Am]I awoke in the house of God
Where the [C2]windows are mornings and evenings
Stretched from the [F2]sun, across the sky north to south
And [Dm]on my way to early meeting [F2]
I heard the r[Am]ocks crying out, I heard the [Gsus]rocks crying o[G]ut

Be [Bb]praised for all Your tenderness by [Fmaj7]these works of Your hands
Suns that r[Dm]ise and rains that fall to bless and b[Am]ring to life Your l[Em]and
Look d[Bb]own upon this winter wheat and be [Fmaj7]glad that You have made
Blue f[Dm]or the sky and the [Am]color green[Bb]
F2 Em/G VAMP2x (Am G/B C2sus)
That fills Your fields with praise

And the [C2sus]wrens have returned and are nesting
In the hollow of that oa[F2]k where his heart once had been
[Dm2]And he lifts up his arms in a blessing for being [Am2]born again
And the s[C2]treams are all swollen with winter
Winter unf[Fmaj9]rozen and free to run away now
[Dm]And I'm amazed and I rem[F2]ember Who it [Am]was that built this house
And with the [Gsus]rocks I cry o[G]ut

...and the [Am]color green[Bb]     [F]
