Chris Tomlin: Not To Us (Chords)

Worship BG - Not To UsImage by bemky via Flickr
 Not To Us by Chris Tomlin and Jesse Reeves (words and music) was written in 2001. It was recorded a half step lower. I have chord charts for this great song in the Key of G and Key of A. I wanted to focus this particular chord chart in the Key of C because I get lots of requests from beginners and also from those folks who may be longing to play in another Key other than C Major. Before we go on, let's take a look at this song and see if we know our chords and chord progression in C.


C                                Am7  
The cross before me the world behind, No turning back raise the 
        G        
banner high
F                             C  Csus  C
It’s not for me, it’s all for you

C                                 Am7      
Let the heavens shake and split the sky, Let the people clap their 
         G
hands and cry
