G                     C
Do you wonder why you have to
                     Em
Feel the things that hurt you
                     C                 D
If there’s a God who loves you where is He now
G                          C
Maybe there are things you can’t see
                         Em
And all those things are happening
                  C
To bring a better ending
        D              C           D
Someday somehow you’ll see, you’ll see


Chorus chords used:
These are not accurate names, e.g. the G is actually a G5.
But for simplicity of displaying them over the lyrics...

   G  D/F# Em G/B  C   D   Am (for coda)
e|-3---3---3---3---3---3---0-----------------------|

D|-0---0---2---0---x---0---2-----------------------|

E|-3---2---0---------------------------------------|


Chorus:
G                                  D/F#
 Would you dare, would you dare to believe
Em                            G/B
 That you still have a reason to sing
C
 Cause the pain that you’ve been feeling
D
 It can’t compare to the joy that’s coming
G                               D/F#
 So hold on, you gotta wait for the light
Em                           G/B
 Press on and just fight the good fight
C
 Cause the pain that you’ve been feeling
D
 It’s just the dark before the morning

Verse 2:
G                           C
My friend you know how this all ends
                      Em
You know where you’re going
                               C
You just don’t know how you’ll get there
         D
So say a prayer
    G                                        C
And hold on cause there’s good for those who love God
                  Em
But life is not a snapshot
                       C                       D
It might take a little time but you’ll see the bigger picture

 That you still have a reason to sing
C/G [332010]
 Cause the pain that you’ve been feeling

Em                           G/B

 Cause the pain that you’ve been feeling

 It’s just the hurt before the healing
