            ***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 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!
