Song : Grief And Praise

[Intro] : G C G

[Verse 1] :
       G
Oh you sisters encircled
C           G
Children of mine
    C
You humble my heart
    C          G 
And sharpen my mind

       G
Though scattered and weary
    D         Em
The change is upon us
       C
We are bound till the end 
  C        G
a family I promise

[Chorus 1] :
D
All that you love
        C          G 
will be taken some day
   G/F# Em
By the  angel of death 
       C           G
Or the servants of change
     D
In a flood water tide
        Em     D  C
Without rancor or rage
     C
Sing loud while you’re able
   D            G        C G
In grief and in praise

[Verse 2] :
    G
For so many years
        C        G
We swam into the tide
       C
And we would not abandon
   C       G
Heroic and kind

           G
Shared our sweat and our shelter
    D          Em
Our bodies and blood
    C
God speed and good fortune
       C           G
I will miss you my love

[Chorus 2] :
    D
For all you hold dear 
        C          G 
will be taken some day
   G/F# Em
By the  angel of death 
       C           G
Or the servants of change
     D
In a flood water tide
        Em     D  C
Without rancor or rage
     C
Sing loud while you’re able
   D            G
In grief and in praise

[Bridge] :
    G/F# Em
Now we   meet at the well of sorrow
    Am
Dug down to the heart of the earth
      Em            D
To be joined at its source
       C              G
To the spring of hope
      C
Drink deep while you can
     D
Give thanks for your thirst

[Solo] : G G C G C C C G G D Em C C C G

[Chorus 3] :
    D
For all that you love

will be taken some day

By the  angel of death 
       C           G
Or the servants of change
     D
In a flood water tide
        Em     D  C
Without rancor or rage
     C
Sing loud while you’re able
   D            G        C G
In grief and in praise

Sing loud while you re able

In grief and in praise
