Chords

For the sake of organization, I’ll have this page dedicated to chords. For those playing instruments, you understand the rarity of written chords available for African Gospel songs: Precisely why I’ve avoided this task for so long … But We have to start somewhere, might as well be here…

      I’ll post the chords here but the format isn’t so good so the chords might not be in the right place: it’s in Eb so i play in C capo 3 = Eb
      so in C:

      [C]
      .C G C
      Oh! How I love Him
      .G C
      Oh, how He cares!
      . F
      Oh, How I love Him
      . C G C
      Because He first loved me

      [1]
      .C G C
      UnguJehova wena, (You are Jehovah)
      .C G C
      Isiphephelo sam’ nguwe (My shield is you)
      .F G Am
      Ungumelusi wam’ wena, (My shepherd, is you)
      .F G C
      Ukuthula kwam’ nguwe (You are my peace)

      [2]
      .C G C
      Ungumthokozisi wena
      (You are the bringer of all joy)
      .C G C
      Ukuphila kwam’ nguwe
      (My life belongs to you)
      .F G Am
      Ungenzel’okuhle wena
      (You do great things) (Njalo, Njalo) (Always)
      .F G C
      El Shaddai Adonnai nguwe
      (You are God Almighty, our Lord)

      Hi Sandra, so I think I worked out the chords though it’s a bit tricky as the first two progressions are very melodic, working on the melody more than the bass note; anyway, hope you can make sense of what I’ve done, and it’s pretty much the same the whole way except the last bit of the song; also I know that in this format none of the chords will be in the right place but I can email you the chart if you’d like..

      G
      Ichokwadi mwari varipo- call out
      .G C2 D/F#- G (ON THE KEYBOARD A&C AS A CHORD WORK FOR C2)
      Ichokwadi mwari var – ipo REPEAT TWICE
      . C — G D/F# G
      Ichok wadi mwari varipo
      . C — G D/F# G
      Ichok wadi mwari varipo
