Monday Mailbag: One Moment In Time

One Moment in Time
One Moment in Time (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I received a song request, One Moment In Time (Level 5),  from Donald A. Schiemann.
It is a beautiful Emmy Award winning song, written by Albert Hammon and John Bettis. It was recorded by American singer Whitney Houston for the 1988 Summer Olympics and the 1988 Paralympics held in Seoul, South Korea. Wikipedia goes on to say that following Houston's death, Entertainment Weekly published a list of her 25 best songs and ranked it #14 because: "The Seoul Olympics needed an anthem, and Houston rose to meet the challenge.

The track is an anthem for believing in yourself against all odds as Houston asks for "One moment in time/when I'm racing with destiny/Then, in that one moment of time, I will feel eternity." I feel that the whole world was saddened when we lost the great star, Whitney Houston but don't you just love this song? I have blogged about it before and you can see my previous post at Piano Chords: One Moment In Time

I also love to look at pictures of clocks. I think I just about have a clock in every room. Do you?

If you're not real familiar with the hit song, you can watch yours truly play it on my little Yamaha keyboard I use with my students. My large keys, the Yamaha Motif, I use for tracks and recordings, too. What do you practice on? I also have an old upright piano that has been with me for a very long time that my mother gave me. I am indeed blessed.


I wanted to share with you the piano/guitar chords from Charlie Valera. Whether you play by ear or read notes, you've just got to know your basic chords, major and minor.

This last video is without using the rhythm software. Sometimes programmed rhythms 
really do help you stay on the beat. In this case, I played the song a tad slower

I Could Sing Of Your Love Forever: Martin Smith

English: Delirious? in concert at the HMV Picture House in Edinburgh (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I Could Sing Of Your Love Forever was written in 1994. The words and music are by Martin Smith.
I have the chords to the song from Delirious, Songs from Cutting Edge. It's in the Key of F Major with 4/4 time signature.

Wikipedia says,

"I Could Sing of Your Love Forever" is a popular Christian rock and worship song by the English rock band Delirious?. The song's popularity has reached far beyond the band's; CCLI places the song among the 30 most-sung worship songs in the United States of America[1] and has been called a "modern worship classic". According to Martin Smith, the author of the song:
"That song just wrote itself in about five minutes. The same chords the whole way through the song. I mean that's embarrassing really! It was just a little ditty. Did it at church. It was good but I don't think it really blew anybody away. It wasn't like, 'Oh Martin's written the most amazing song!' I still don't really think it is. But yes, that song, that moment changed our lives really. It's been one of the most sung songs in America and around the world. It's crazy really, this little ditty that we don't really do anymore. It's been great."
 For more info, visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I_Could_Sing_of_Your_Love_Forever

First off, let's take a look at the song online.



I found an easy chord chart for you:

Verse:
G                               Em
     Over the mountains and the sea,
                              C
Your river runs with love for me,
                      D
and I will open up my heart
                          G
and let the Healer set me free.
                       Em
I'm happy to be in the truth,
                         C
and I will daily lift my hands:
                          D
for I will always sing of when

Your love came down. 


Chorus:
G                         D
     I could sing of Your love forever,
Em                        C
     I could sing of Your love forever,
G                         D
     I could sing of Your love forever,
Em                        C
     I could sing of Your love forever,


Bridge thingy:
Am                   G
     Oh, I feel like dancing - hey yeaah
Am                      G
     it's foolishness I know;
Am                           G
     but, when the world has seen the light,
          C          G
they will dance with joy,
           C       D
like we're dancing now.
 
I like to play this song in the Key of F:
 
Verse:
F                               Gm11
     Over the mountains and the sea,
                              Bbsus2
Your river runs with love for me,
                      Csus
and I will open up my heart
                          F
and let the Healer set me free.
                       Gm11
I'm happy to be in the truth,
                         Bbsus2
and I will daily lift my hands:
                          Csus
for I will always sing of when
                C
Your love came down. 


Chorus:
F(add2)                        Gm11
     I could sing of Your love forever,
Bb(add2)                        C
     I could sing of Your love forever,
F2(add2)                         Gm11
     I could sing of Your love forever,
Bb(add2)                        C
     I could sing of Your love forever,


Bridge:
Gm9                   F/A
     Oh, I feel like dancing - hey yeaah
Bb(add2)                      Csus
     it's foolishness I know;
Gm9                           F/A
     but, when the world has seen the light,
          Bb(add2)          
they will dance with joy,
           Csus       F
like we're dancing now. 

For the intro, I'm playing 4 measures with the following chords, moderately.

FF/ CFA

G/ CFBb

BbF/ CFBb

C/ CFG

Then you want to play these chords while your voice sings all these words:

Verse

F/CFA Over the mountains and the sea

G/BbFC Your river runs with love for me,

BbF/CF and I will open up my heart

CG/CG and let the Healer set me free.

G/CFGA forever.

Bb/CDFG I could sing of Your love

C/CEA forever,

G/CFGA forever,

Bb/CDFG I could sing of Your love

G/BbDF Ph, I feel like

A/CFG dancing;

C/CFG know.

G/BbDF But when the world has seen

A/CF the light they will

Bb/FBbD dance with joy like we're danc-

C/DFC ing now

Over the mountains and the sea
                               F#m

They will dance for joy like we're dancing now

Charlie Hall, the musician, is a Christian worship leader and songwriter from Oklahoma CityOklahoma
He is a member of a group of musicians and speakers that collectively form the Passion movement.

Charlie Hall: Center Video

It's such a soothing song. I remember playing it once with a young worship leader who had a good
voice. As a keyboard player, I think he wanted me to play with the team using a pad sound.
You know, one of those ethereal voices for background sounds, where you're not in a hurry in between chords.

How To Play Be Glorified (Chris Tomlin)


He's the rock, and His work is perfect

I love the song, Be Glorified by Chris Tomlin. I have played it many times on the worship team. It is so much fun to be with a group of musicians and hear one another's part, especially the bass in this song. Sing along and keep the energy up in the rhythm. Have you heard the song before? Here is the video:


 
Here's a chord chart I found online. The second one is what I use.

Intro: G, Csus2, Fsus2, Csus2, x2

Verse 1:
G    Csus2     Fsus2    Csus2
Your love  has captured me.

G    Csus2     D
Your grace has set me free;

G    Csus2     Fsus2 Csus2
Your life, the air i breathe.

Am7              D
     Be glorified in me.

G, Csus2, Fsus2, Csus2, x2

Chorus:

Csus2
You set my feet to dancing

G
You set my heart on fire.

       Csus2
In the presence of a thousand kings,

    G
You are my one desire.

Csus2                           Em7       D            Csus2
and i stand before you now with trembling hands lifted high.

Be glorified

G, Csus2, Fsus2, Csus2, x2

Back to verse 1:

Come back in after chorus:

Bridge:

G             G/B  C   D
       Be glorified in me,

       G/B  C   D
Be glorified in me,

       G/B  C   D
Be glorified in me,

       G/B  C   
Be glorified
