As with most JMM songs, he plays the G as a Gsus4.

Capo 4
Verse 1
C             G
You set us up above all the stars
    F                      G
You set us on a high place by where You are
   Am                      G
and while we were dead, You made us Your friends
    F             G             F  C
and scattered our debt upon the winds

F              C
Glory to One, God's murdered Son
    F        G      F    C
who paid for my resurrection

Verse 2
C                        G
Once from the dust, and once from the grave
F                           G
Daughters and sons from the ashes You've raised
   Am                      G
and hidden our faults even from Your own face
    F             G             F  C
and scattered our debt upon the waves

Chorus x2

C             G      Am          F   G
Glory to the One who overcame in death
C             G      Am            F   G
Glory to the One who paid for my offenses
C             F    Am (or Dm)   F
Glory to the One, Glory to the One

(On the album, he plays C F Am F G progression, but live he always plays it
like this with the G after the C)

Verse 2

The second chord of the bridge should be an F, as in:

C F Am F G

Killer job otherwise.

He plays it like that live (check out the youtube video of him playing this on his acoustic). It sounds like an F on the album, but I uploaded this prior to the album coming out and every time he's played it live, he plays the Gsus4.
