About this tab version
Not submitted to UG thus far. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Song: "O Day of Peace"
Album: "The Light Came Down"
Artist: Josh Garrels
Tab Interpreter: David Codington


[NOTE]
    I obtained the lyrics to this song from this link: https://joshgarrels.bandcamp.com. 
The music to this song is written by Josh Garrels, though the words were first penned by 
Carl P. Daw, Jr., as the song "O Day Of Peace That Dimly Shines." I've used the piano to 
interpret these chords, to the best of my ability! Interpret how you will. 


[VERSE 1]
         Bb          Ab     Eb
O day of peace that dimly shines 
                Bb         Ab           Eb
Through all our hopes and prayers and dreams, 
             Bb      Ab         Eb
Guide us to justice, truth, and love, 
          Bb        F       Bb
Delivered from our selfish schemes. 


[VERSE 2]
                  Gm        Bb        Eb
May swords of hate fall from our hands, 
                 Gm   Bb    Eb
Our hearts from envy find release, 
               Bb        Ab      Eb 
Till by God's grace our warring world 
                    Bb       F        Bb
Shall see Christ's promised reign of peace. 


Gm Bb Eb Bb F Bb


[VERSE 3]
                Bb         Ab       Eb
Then shall the wolf dwell with the lamb, 
              Bb        Ab        Eb
Nor shall the fierce devour the small; 
               Bb      Ab     Eb
As beasts and cattle calmly graze, 
           Bb         F       Bb
A little child shall lead them all. 


[VERSE 4]
        Gm          Bb       Eb
Then enemies shall learn to love, 
               Gm         Bb    Eb
All creatures find their true accord; 
             Bb          Ab    Eb
The hope of peace shall be fulfilled, 
             Bb          F       Bb
For all the earth shall know the Lord.

*****

[NOTE]
    The next song on this album, "Come to Him," sounds nearly identical to this one, almost as if 
written to be played as an outro to this song. It's as if Josh Garrels made it a separate song simply so
as not to tarnish the beauty of this one.

Thank you brother!

Glad someone wrote the chords to this one. Absolutely gorgeous song from Garrels' soul, like almost everything he writes.
