Quiet Science – Splendour Chords and Lyrics

Artist : Quiet Science
Song : Splendour

[Intro] : Em  C  Bm  D

[Verse 1] : 
   Em
A pearl in the red sea, a flower in the field,
      C
the changing of the leaves
                            Bm
You are in the clouds, the grass, the distant hills
                  D
How could we not see?

[Verse 2] : 
Em
Poetry and prose. It’s in the shape, the color,
C
the smell of a rose
                      Bm
You left love letters written in Your hand
                        D    B/D#
For the careful eye to read.

[Chorus 1] : 
          Em
But we misread
                            C
and gave Your glory to the birds
                            G       D    B/D#
We gave Your honor to Your works instead
          Em
But we misread
                                   C
and chased the sun, the moon, the stars
                          G
to try to find out who we are
                   D
and from where we came

[Instrumental] : Em  C  Bm  D

[Verse 3] : 
Em
When the dawn breaks, in every sunset
     C
the heavens they proclaim
                                Bm
in a voice that goes out to the ends of the earth
                       D   B/D#
the splendour of Your name

[Chorus 1] : 
          Em
But we misread
                            C
and gave Your glory to the birds
                            G       D    B/D#
We gave Your honor to Your works instead
          Em
But we misread
                                   C
and chased the sun, the moon, the stars
                           G
to try to find out who you are
                   D
and from where we came

[Verse 4] : 
          Em
But this beauty still will fade.
                        C
All this loveliness is destined to decay.
                     Bm
In this dying world, even nature waits
                         D
for the glory that shall be

[Chorus 2] : 
               Em
On our way to death,
                      C
we wait to truly be alive
                          G     D
to fall before our God and cry Holy

[Outro] : 
   G    G/F#   Em        C
Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord
