Cornerstone Chords: Hillsong

I love the song, Cornerstone from Hillsong. Watch the YouTube Video and be blessed.
It's from the album, Cornerstone and it's such a great song to listen to when you're going 
through some difficult times.


Basically, a Major Seventh with Ninth = C E G B D
Right, you're just adding the ninth to the seventh chord.

So what is a C dominant 9 Chord?

C E G Bb D

Basically, it's a C dominant 7 chord with an added 9 tone. Play Bb and E with the left hand and Bb, D and G on the right.

Chords and Lyrics

Intro:  G   Em  C9  D

Verse 1
My hope is built on nothing less
C9                    D
Than Jesus' blood and righteousness
Em                    D
I dare not trust the sweetest frame
C9          D         G
But wholly trust is Jesus' name

        C9    Em    D
Christ alone, Cornerstone
G/B       C9            Em       D
Weak made strong in the Savior's love
G           C9
Through the storm
Em    D 
He is Lord
Lord of all

When darkness seems to hide His face
C9                       D
I rest on His unchanging grace
Em                 D
In every high and stormy gale
C9              D        G
My anchor holds within the veil
C9              D        G 
My anchor holds within the veil

Em    C9
He is Lord
D       G
Lord of all

Verse 3
When He shall come with trumpet sound
C9               D
Oh may I then in Him be found

Dressed in His righteousness alone
C9         D            G
Faultless, stand before the throne
