Lyrics and chords

10 Father Into Your Hands I Commend My Spirit ( Luke 23. 44-49)

(or 4th capo G guitar)

B5

B F#/A#

It was noon

G#m

When darkness came upon the land,

C#m C#m/B F#

And everything was gloomy until three

B F#/A#

Sunlight failed

G#m

The veil was torn in two

E

And all around was eerie,

C#m F#

And our hearts they failed us too

E

As a voice came drifting

C#m F#

Softly moaning like the wind, crying:-

B E/B B E/B B E/B B E/B B E/B B

“Father....... into your hands, I commend my spirit!”

B F#/A#

This he said

G#m

And then we heard him breathe his last,

C#m C#m/B F#

We heard a soldier say this was God’s Son

B F#/A#

We hung our heads,

G#m

And wept aloud with shame

E

So sorry for the slaughter,

C#m F#

And appalled at what we’d done.

E

Then a wind came drifting

C#m F#

Softly moaning like his voice, crying:-

B E/B B E/B B E/B B E/B B E/B B

“Father....... into your hands, I commend my spirit!” REPEAT
