The Stand
Joel Houston

Key: A

Verse 1:
You stood before creation
eternity in Your hand
A/C#                     F#m
You spoke the earth into motion
My soul now to stand

Verse 2:
You stood before my failure
And carried the cross for my shame
   A/C#                      F#m
My sin weighed upon Your shoulders
My soul now to stand

So what can I say
Bm                 F#m
And what could I do
                    D     E
But offer this heart O God
        F#m      A  E  F#m  D  A  E  F#m
Completely to You

Verse 3:
So I'll walk upon salvation
Your Spirit alive in me
     A/C#                  F#m
This life to declare Your promise
My soul now to stand

D         A
So I'll stand
     E             F#m            D
With arms high and heart abandoned
   A          E       F#m        D
In awe of the One who gave it all
I'll stand
    E           F#m
My soul Lord to You surrendered
D       A        E  F#m
All I am is Yours

So what can I say
Bm                 F#m
And what could I do
A                  Bm7    E
But offer this heart O God
Completely to You

Great job on this man! Love this song. Only this is that they don't play it open, they play it in Capo 2. It doesn't change the key, but simply the chords. Song is still in A, but the chords change as follows (Savoirinme, this will also make it easier to play =P):

A -> G
D -> C
A/C# -> G/B
F#m -> Em
Bm -> Am
E -> D
Bm7 -> Am7

This makes it much easier, seeing as there are no bar chords involved (plus it just simply sounds better). Also, during the chorus, it seems to me that an F#m7 instead of F#m, and a D2 instead of a D (so Em7 instead of Em, and a C2 instead of a C, if you're playing it in A on capo 2) sound more appropriate to me (as in, it matches with the melody better). Let me know what you think! Again, awesome tab =D

Yeah nice. Capo 2 sounds good with the chords above ^^. I like playing Asus2 & Dsus2 in the first verse and maybe the other verses. Peace
