13. The throne of heaven (Revelation 4.2-11)

For me, the most inspiring vision in the whole of the bible… a kingdom to come!

Intro: Ab

1st capo G

Ab(G) Eb(D) Fm(Em) Db(C)

Jasper, carnelian,shining from your face,

Ab(G) Eb(D) Db (C) Ab (G)

Colours that shimmer, from your throne of grace.

Fm(Em) Ab(G) Eb(D) Ab(G)

Rainbow of emerald, high above your brow

Fm(Em) Ab(G) Eb(D) Ab(G),

Symbol of promise offered to us now.

Ab(G) Eb(D)Fm(Em) Db(C)

Elders surround you, holy men of old,

Ab(G) Eb(D) Db (C) Ab (G)

seated in splendour, wearing crowns of gold.

Fm(Em) Ab(G) Eb(D) Ab(G)

Thunder and lightning, seven lamps ablaze,

Fm(Em) Ab(G) Eb(D) Ab(G),

Sea made of crystal, on this sight we gaze.

Ab(G) Eb(D) Fm(Em) Db(C)

Four living creatures, many eyes aflame,

Ab(G) Eb(D) Db (C) Ab (G)

Tell of your wonders, speak your holy name.

Fm(Em) Ab(G) Eb(D) Ab(G)

Father Almighty, holy blessed Lord,

Fm(Em) Ab(G) Eb(D) Ab(G),

Who was, is and shall be evermore adored!

Ab(G) Eb(D) Fm(Em) Eb(D) Ab(G) Eb(D) Fm(Em) Eb(D)

Holy, holy, holy Lord, Holy, holy, holy Lord (repeat and fade)
