Hi, this is my first time doing chords but this is how I play the song 
Ten Thousand by the incredible worshipper John Mark McMillan. 
The changes can be a little quick. 

Also (based on the bass notes I can hear in the album version) at the line
"Where the blood of a husband silences wars" the SECOND E is different 
to a regular E major chord; which I play like this:

e ---0---
B ---0---
G ---9---
D ---9---
A ---7---
E ---0---

So at that line, you go from E to C#m and then slide up to the second type of E. 
Or at least I do. Your choice :)

All the best. Enjoy the chords, God Bless.

Verse 1
E                            B            E       
Ten thousand glimmering like coals in our chest
C#m           B            E        A
Ball bearings drawn to the magnetic breath
       E                    B               E       
Of ten thousand weeping with wings on their tears
       C#m          B          E            A
Amidst ten thousand voices for ten thousand years
     E                          B              E       
For ten thousand graves yawning unlocked and unlatched
    C#m          B          E               A
Now ten thousand holes with rocks on their backs
     E                          B          E       
Ten thousand tombs gaping wide singing the praise
   C#m          B        E           A
Of ten thousand bodies unlaced and unlaid

Pre - Chorus
       B                     C#m           A
As the ten thousand highways unfold their doors
        B                        C#m        A
For the ten thousand standing on Nineveh's shores
          E                   A       E             
Where the blood of a husband silences wars
         A       B        E
For the girl who rises to meet him
And she sings

World, I have overcome you
World, I have overcome you
World, I have overcome
      A                       B
By my song and the blood of a son

Verse 2
Ten thousand rivers run red like my veins
Where the bones of men hum like a rattling cage
For sinew to cling to for wind to remain
In ten thousand lungs for ten thousand days
Breathing like a choir of holes in the ground
Where the cynical have lain, where the cynical go down
Save the gravity of time lets go of her drowned
Like ten thousand sparrows unlocked and unwound
