HE WASHED MY EYES WITH TEARS

(E flat) Eb Bb He washed my eyes with tears that I might see, B7 Eb The broken heart I had was good for me; Bb He tore it all apart and looked inside, B7 Eb He found it full of fear and foolish pride. Ab Eb He swept away the things that made me blind Bb B7 B7 And then I saw the clouds were silver lined; Eb Bb And now I understand 'twas best for me B7 Eb He washed my eyes with tears that I might see. Eb Bb He washed my eyes with tears that I might see B7 Eb The glory of Himself revealed to me; Bb I did not know that He had wounded hands B7 Eb I saw the blood He spilt upon the sands. Ab Eb I saw the marks of shame and wept and cried; Bb B7 He was my substitute for me He died; Eb Bb And now I'm glad He came so tenderly; B7 Eb Ab Eb And washed my eyes with tears that I might see.

On Fire Piano Chords

Switchfoot performing live at the 2010 BSA Nat...Image via Wikipedia
I love the song On Fire by Switchfoot. 

The words and music are by Jonathan Foreman and Daniel Victor. I'm getting closer to wrapping up another school year of teaching piano. Unbelievable really, how time flies!

So, a piano student is working on this moderately slow worshipful song. It was written back in 2003.
Here are the guitar chords for the Key of C and Key of G.

 *C*                                       *G*

Give me one more chance to see, yeah
 Cmaj7

Give me everything you are
 G(add2)                               Am9             F(add2)

Give me one more chance to be near you, awh, awh

 Cmaj7

When everything inside me looks like
 G(add2)

Everything I hate

You are the hope I have for change

You are the only chance I'll take

How To Play Blackbird

I receive many requests from readers who love all of the Beatles songs and want to play them for their own enjoyment. I have posted some of their popular songs in the past and you can see All You Need Is Love , Let It be and Help

One lovely song, Blackbird that was written in 1968, is to be played slowly and smoothly. Here is the chord chart to the song I found online. I think it is quite helpful for beginners.
