On Fire Piano Chords

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*
