Strumming

I saw the video of Phil Wickham singing this unreleased song and wanted to learn to play
it, but when I searched for the chords, the only tab I found was totally inaccurate.  I
ended up making a tab that's almost, if not completely, accurate to the video.  Every
little variation of every chord is here.  I learned quite a few new ways to play E, Cm, B,
and A while making this tab.

Tuning
All strings one whole step down from standard tuning

Key
The one-step-down tuning makes it D, but if you play with standard tuning it would be E.

Chords
There are quite a few variations of chords in this song, so it took me a few hours to
get them all down.  I'm pretty sure I'm at least almost exactly right.  One thing to
remember is that almost all the chords in the first verse, chorus and bridge are power
chords, with some of the strings muted—it's pretty easy to figure out which strings to
mute once
you know all the chords.  The asterisks are for whenever there are two different
versions of a chord, and you need to play different one of the versions listed in the charts
here.  Okay now, so I'll put down the chords that are used, and then I'll do the full 
chart with the lyrics.  I probably don't have all of the 5's and 2's right, but here here they
are (you play them as if you were playing with standard tuning in the key of E):

This is a great song. And thanks for all the work you put in to get these chords for people. There's also a really great tutorial from Phil Wickham on youtube on how to play his acoustic version (not sure how much it's different from the original). In that, he uses a DADGAD tuning but dropped down half a step so it's actually Db-Ab-Db-Gb-Ab-Db. Chords are fairly easy once you get used to them and I find it a lot of fun. Check out the vid here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cTGqf1ZBIW8
