Topic: When the darkness comes

My effort at writing a religious song.

When the darkness comes 
 
Capo 3rd fret

C G Am F C G

1.
                      C    G     Am                          F C G
When the darkness comes, there will be a light
        C        G    Am                   F     C G
Our father will call, with his love divine

2.
                 C     G Am                        F    C G
You will feel no shame, you will feel no pain
           C      G   Am              F       C   G
As he lifts you up, in his warm embrace

3.
                  C   G   Am                      F C      G
Hear the angels sing, welcome all their grace
                    C  G Am                    F            C   G
Go live for all eternity, Pass on through the gate

4.
                    C  G           Am                      F   C G
There will be no more hunger, there will be no disease
                    C   G          Am                      F     C     G
There will be no more wars, you will now find peace

1.
                     C    G     Am                           F C G
When the darkness comes, there will be a light
         C       G    Am                   F     C G
Our father will call, with his love divine

4.
                     C  G           Am                          F   C G
There will be no more hunger, there will be no disease
                   C   G           Am                     F     C     G
There will be no more wars, you will now find peace

3.
                 C   G   Am                       F C      G
Hear the angels sing, welcome all their grace
              C   G Am                           F            C   G
Go live for all eternity, Pass on through the gate
G7     C       
A…   men….

Re: When the darkness comes

the meter seems perfect and it really does come across as a prayer. amen     

Ask not what Chordie can do for you, but what you can do for Chordie.

Re: When the darkness comes

Ctech that is a song that I would love to hear, not only sung in church  but as a religious anthem in all settings.

Re: When the darkness comes

Thanks Phil,I'm not religious but all those covid deaths must have stired something inside. I don't know why I put amen on the end. Thanks Jim peatle I have recorded a lose music track with no singing. May post that to see what you think.    I do think a religious person could improve on what I've written.

Re: When the darkness comes

Added a link to when the darkness comes.  But only the first two verse to give an idea of how it goes.

Ctech
thats sounding good,how about multi track the vocal so it sounds choral.

Re: When the darkness comes

Good idea Brian  I only did the two verses as it goes higher and I don't thing my voice will manage it . I may change the Key and try.
No comments on "You keep putting pictures in my mind." Good or bad. Ain't songwriting alowed to be controversial?

Re: When the darkness comes

Ctech now  I have heard the music music component of this song I can hear in my head someone with an Elvis type voice singing it. Excellent piece of composition.     

Re: When the darkness comes

Thanks peatle i will try and finish it so you can hear the whole song. Its just hard to get my voice higher and  I can't do elvis.

Re: When the darkness comes

This couls be the "white" to my "darker" song  and the flip side of Heaven or Hell.  Nice song!

a bit tooo wet on the vocals though.   I also hear Elvis Only Fools Rush in or Suspicious minds.
