            ***Here are the four chords used in the verse(s) and below is the
               order with lyrics...

          G          C                  G
You were cold as the blood through your bones
         C               G          G/F#   Em          (Walk down low E string)
And the light which led us from our chosen homes
   C        G
Well I was lost

           G
And now I sleep
           C              G
Sleep the hours and that I don't weep
        C                G     G/F#      Em
When all I knew was steeped in blackened holes
 C     G
I was lost


D   G     D    G
hm  hmm  hmm  hmm
C   Em   C   Em   D   G
hm  hmm  hm  hmm  hmm hmm


[Chorus]     ***Light pick

Em      C       G       D
Keep the earth below my feet
Em      C       G          D
For all my sweat, my blood runs weak
Em      C       G          D
Let me learn from where I have been
        C          Em     C           G
Keep my eyes to serve and hands to learn
        C          Em     C           G
Keep my eyes to serve and hands to learn


[Verse 2]

          ***This is slightly different.

         G
So I was still
     C              G
I was under your spell
       C             G   G/F#    Em
When I was told by Jesus all was well
     C          G
So all must be well

              G
Just give me time
         C                G
You know your desires and mine
         C         G     G/F# Em
Wrap my flesh in ivory and in twine
   C           G
For I must be well


REPEAT CHORUS x1

         ***Strumming the chords in the "hands to learn" part of chorus
            and from this point on!

For all my sweat, my blood runs weak

for anyone learning this song after the release of 'Babel', I tabbed this using video of live performances BEFORE the album was released. The lyrics may have changed/rearranged but the chords and intro are correct! Thanks!

This is pretty dang close! I tabbed it out after their performance on SNL and this is pretty spot on!
