Higher Ways

Steven Curtis Chapman

 1.      If I could only fly I'd go up
 and look down from the sky
 so I could see the bigger picture
 and lord if I could sit with you at your feet
G C g/B Am7 D
for an hour or two, I'm sure I'd ask too many questions
 cause there's so much going on down here,
 that I must confess I just don't understand,
 I don't understand

 But I have prayed and at your feet my whole life
 has been laid, so I won't worry I won't be afraid
 cause my soul is resting on your higher ways.
 So let the road ahead become unclear,
 oh I am yours so what have I to fear
 If my soul is resting on your higher ways.
 Chorus:  Your Higher ways teach me to trust you
 Your higher ways are not like mine
 Your higher ways are the ways of a father,
 hiding his children in his love.      

(hopefully you can figure out the rest because it is all the
same as the other verses)

2. So let it rain and if my eyes grow dim with tears
of pain, this hope I have will not be washed away,
cause my soul is resting on your higher ways
(does an instrumental and then repeats chorus)

3. someday I will fly and maybe then
you will take me aside and show me the bigger picture
but until I'm with you I'll be here
with a heart that is true, and a soul thats resting on
your higher ways.
