Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is the picking pattern I use, the beats appearing on the top two rows and the 
fingerings on the bottom two:

1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 1
/ .(/). / .(/). / 
4 23 4  4 23 4  4
1     1 1     1 1

In the actual recording, the pattern changes from verse to chorus, but I haven't 
yet figured it out.  The above transcription is truly only half of the verse 
fingering, but I play it throughout and it sounds good enough, if not entirely 
authentic.  Gungor himself is much more melodic in his playing; but this chord 
sheet should fit the bill until a more talented guitarist comes along and improves 
it. 
 
Please Be My Strength

[Verse 1]
     Bm                F#m          F#            G
I've tried to stand my ground, I've tried to understand         
      G             D       A       Bm    /                           
But I can't seem to find my faith again                         
     Bm           F#m      F#              G                         
Like water on the sand, or grasping at the wind                 
G         D          A  /                                             
I keep on falling short, so     

[Chorus 1]
G    /       D    /    F#   /       Bm                               
Please be my strength, please be my strength                    
       Bm/A            G  /  Gm  /               D   /   /   /               
'Cause I don't have anymore,     I don't have anymore           
                                                    
[Interlude]
Bm   F#m   F#   G                                                    
G    D     A    Bm   /                                               

[Verse 2] 
    Bm            F#m         F#             G
I'm looking for a place where I can plant my faith
G           D        A     Bm
One thing I know for sure-
Bm           F#m     F#          G
I can not create it, I can not sustain it
     G                D         A   /
It's Your love that's keeping me

[Chorus 1]
G    /       D    /    F#   /       Bm                               
Please be my strength, please be my strength                    
       Bm/A            G  /  Gm  /               D   /   /   /               
'Cause I don't have anymore,     I don't have anymore           
                                                      
[Interlude]
Bm   F#m   F#   G                                                    
G    D     A    Bm   /                                               
        
[Verse 3]
    Bm          F#m      F#              G
And at my final breath I hope that I can say 
  G               D           A    /
I fought the good fight of faith
  Bm              F#m           F#                G
I pray Your glory shine in this doubting heart of mine
    G         D           A   /
And all would know that You

[Chorus 2]        
G  /       D   /     F# /       Bm
You are my strength, You are my strength
Bm/A         G  /  Gm         /                D   /   /   /
You and You alone,   You keep bringing me back home

G  /       D   /     F# /       Bm
You are my strength, You are my strength
Bm/A         G  /  A         /                Bm7   /   Bm/A
You and You alone,  You keep bringing me back home

[Tag]     
     /            G  /  A  /                Bm   
It's You and You alone     bringing me back home.

[Ending]
(Bm)  F#m   F#   G    /    Bm   A    D
