There are a lot of versions up on the site, but, sadly, most are incorrect. Here
are the real chords (of course, Sufjan changes it up with interesting pull-offs
and hammer-ons with his banjo, but just toy with it and you can get it)

Tuning - Standard

Capo - 8

Chords used - Em C G D

Verse 1:

Em                C         G                 D    Em               C
I have called you children, I have called you son. What is there to answer if 
G            D    Em               C          G                D      Em                     
I'm the only one? Morning comes in paradise - morning comes in light. Still I 
      C            G      D
must obey, still I must invite.
           Em          C               G           D              Em           
If there's anything to say, if there's anything to do. If there's any other 
C           G            D
way, I'd do anything for you.

And that's it. It's 100% accurate - or, at least, as accurate as can be expected
when transcribing it from banjo to guitar. Have fun with the pull-offs and hammer-
ons. If you've listened to any of Sufjan's other stuff, you'll know what to do. Enjoy.

here are the rest of the lyrics

I've have called you children
I have called you son
What is there to answer
If I'm the only one
Morning comes in Paradise
Morning comes in light
Still I must obey
Still I must invite

If there's anything to say
If there's anything to do
I there's any other way
I'd do anything for you

I was dressed in embarassment
I was dressed in white
If you had a part of me
Will you take your time
Even if I come back
Even if I die
Is there some idea
To replace my life

Like a father to impress
Like a mother's mourning dress
If we ever make a mess
I'll do anything for you

I have called you preacher
I have called you son
If you have a father
Or if you haven't one
I'll do anything for you
I'll do anything for you
I'll do anything for you
I'll do anything for you
I'll do anything for you

I did everything for you
I did everything for you
I did everything for you
I did everything for you
I did everything for you
I did everything for you
I did everything for you
I did everything for you
I did everything for you
I did everything for you
I did everything for you
I did everything for you
I did everything for you
I did everything for you
