Song: Everlasting God
Artist: Chris Tomlin
Album: See the Morning
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Jordan Lambert
Email: tmacman001@yahoo.com
Notes: If performed in Chris Tomlin's key, it'll be in Db. In case you need to 
I used note names and fret numbers.
Tuning: Standard (5-String Bass)

INTRO: Pedal tone Db with short 8th notes (maybe palm-muted)
*You probably shouldn't be playing the low Db on the B-string (2nd fret)in the intro,
you're REALLY rocking this one out...save it for the chorus, if anything.

    Db
G|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--4-4-4-----------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------| a 4-measure phrase consists of 32--|
B|------------------------------------------------------------------------| 8th notes. ..etc.
(8th notes, 4 measures) If you're really into counting,

VERSE: Same as intro: short, possibly palm-muted 8th notes on Db.
    Db
G|-------------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------------|
A|--4-4-4------------------------------|..etc.(8th notes, 4 measures)
E|-------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------|
       “Strength will rise...”

Then repeat the verse...same as before. 8th notes on Db...but then:
*Watch for the pushes at the end of the verse and in the PreChorus. The timing on the
is the most difficult part in the song. Listen to the recording for help.

END VERSE/PRECHORUS:
    Db                          F    Gb       F   Gb      Ab Bb   Ab
    +  4    + 1  + 2  +   3     +  4 +  1+2+3 + 4 +  1  + 2 +3+4+ 1+2+
G|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--4--4----4-4--4-4--4---4----------------------------------1--------|
E|------------------------------1----2~-------1---2-------4~------4~--|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
   “We will wait upon the Lord  Our  God      You reign for-e –   ver”


*Watch for the bar of 2/4 here.
      F   Gb      F    Gb     Ab    Bb        Ab
    3 + 4 + 1+2+3 +  4 +  1   + 2 + 1 +2+3+4+ 1+2+3+4+
G|-----------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------1~---------(Build)-|
E|----1---2~------1----2------4---------------4-4-4-4--|
B|-----------------------------------------------------|
     “Our hope,   our  strong de- liv   -   'rer”

CHORUS: Whew...the easy part. Just drive it with fat, open 8th notes and/or whatever
your dynamic level at the time. I'll just write the single notes used.
NOTE: The guitars use “disposable” changes before the Gb and Bb, so in my opinion, these
necessary for the bass to do. Keep it Simple!

    Db                Gb         Bb         Gb
G|-----------------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------|
A|--4----------------------------1---------------------------|
E|--------------------2---------------------2----------------|
B|-(2)-------------------------------------------------------|
     “You are the...God, the...God......you won't grow weary.”

*This chorus progression is repeated for second half of chorus later, from “You're the
of the weak...” to “on wings like eagles.”

Those are the sections you'll need, order them how you wish. End on a long Db for the
to play the final riff over. Have fun, God bless.
