CAPO 1

Intro:  |  D  |  G/D  :||

Verse 1:
          D                                 G/D
In these times in which we live, where the worst of what we live
    G/D                                        D
Is laid out for all the world on the front page
         D                                  G/D
And the sound of someone's heartbreak is a soundbite at the news break
        G/D                                         D
With a close shot of the tears rollin' down their face
D7                        G
Blessed be the child who turns a loving eye
     Bm7      A                                   D    G/D
And stops to pray, for these times in which we live


Verse 2:
          D                              G/D
In these most uncertain hours where the balance of power
       G                          D
Is a fight that is fought every day
      D                         G/D
And freedom is a word, some cry out and some whisper
     G                                 D
And some are just too quick to give away
D7                       G
Blessed be the one who stands by the one
        Bm7      A                               D
On the battle line, for these times in which we live


Chorus 1:
      Em7  G        Bm7          A 
Well give  me a heart full of ten-der mercy
     G   Bm7     Em7   G
And arms I will open wide


Verse 3:
            D                                   G/D
For these times in which we live seems like the only answer is
 G                            D
Givin' up on findin' one at all
        D                            G/D
And we hide behind unsure, pull the blinds and lock the doors
     G                               D
And hang a pleasant picture on the wall
D7                                  G
Blessed is the believer who knows love is our redeemer
        Bm7              A                                   D
And the only breath of life, for these times in which we live


Chorus 2:
      Em7  G        Bm7          A 
Well give  me a heart  full of ten-der mercy
     G   Bm7     Em7   G
And arms I will open wide
      Em7   G  Bm7            A 
Yeah, give me words full of loving kindness
     G     Bm7      Em7        G
And hands ready to hold up a light
                               D   G/D
For these times in which we live
                               D   G/D
For these times in which we live


Ad-lib with outro:
D                 G/D      D      G/D
  Blessed be the child oh-oh
D                G/D                D     G/D
Yea-yea-yea-yea-yeah-ah, for these times
      D         G/D                D    G/D
Everybody just stop and pray, yea-yeah
D
  For these times in which we live.
