This is how Jon plays Only Hope live:

Chords for the verses (he picks through them):
(numbers with no parentheses = frets
      numbers in parentheses = fingers...
 ex: --(3)7-- means your 3rd finger goes on the 7th fret)

e|-------------------------------(4)3---(4)3---(4)3---------------|
b|------------0------------------(3)3---(3)3---(3)3------0--------|
g|--(4)7---(2)4---------------------0------0------0---(4)4--------|
d|--(1)5---(4)5---(1)7----(3)4---(1)2------0---(1)2---(3)4--------|
a|--(3)7---(3)5---(4)10---(1)2---(2)3---(1)2---(2)3---(1)2--------|
e|---------(1)3---(1)7-------0----------(2)3-------------0--------|


Picking for Verse and Out Chorus: (he slides between the chords...just kinda flowing 
it....you dont always hit the notes exactly like i typed them. Check out the live 
and the video i put at the end of the tab to figure out the strumming pattern)

 count::1.....2.......3......4::.....1.......2........3.....4.......::
|---------------------------------------3--------3-------3-----0-----|
|---------------------------------------3--------3-------3-----0-----|
|---------7------4------------------------0--------0-----0-----4-----|
|--------5----------------7-----4------2----------------------4------|
|-------7---7\--5-------10-----2-2---3---------2------2h3-3-2---2----|
|-------------3---3-3/7----7/0---------------3-----------------------|


Chords used in the Chorus:
(again, numbers in parentheses are fingers, numbers that arent are frets)

  ::E5::    ::B5::    ::A5::   ::C#m::    ::Cm::
|-----0--||-----0--||-----0--||-----0--||-----0--|
|-----0--||-----0--||-----0--||--(2)5--||-----0--|
|--(4)9--||--(2)8--||--(2)6--||--(4)6--||--(4)5--|
|--(3)9--||--(3)9--||--(3)7--||--(3)6--||--(3)5--|
|--(1)7--||--(1)x--||--(1)x--||--(1)4--||--(1)3--|
|-----0--||--(1)7--||--(1)5--||--------||--------|

The Chord progression for the chorus goes:
      E5     B5        A5     B5
So i lay my head back down
      E5      B5        A5
and i lift my hands and pray
       C#m           A5         C#m
to be only yours. I pray to be only yours
   Cm
i know now you're my only hope

Gadd2          E/B
 I give you my empathy
Gadd2          E/B
 I'm giving you all of me
Gadd2          E/B
 I want Your symphony
F#m                    E/B
 Singing in all that i am
         A             E/B      A          E/B
 at the top of my lungs     I'm giving it back.
