You Have Prepared A Place

by Matt and Joanna Black



Words and Music by Matt Black


(Played on a tenor ukulele using simple chord voicings)

Oh [C] Lord I will praise you

When the sun is on my [C7] face

And [F] even in the shadows

When my hope is fading a-[C]-way

I’ll keep my [G7] heart set on the Kingdom that will [C] be 

For I [C] know You have [G7] prepared a place for [C] me [C7]


You have [G7] prepared a place 

A [F] glorious [C] place

Where the [G7] sorrows of the will pass

and [F] pain will be no [C] more

You have [G7] prepared a place

A [F] glorious [C] place 

Where we will [G7] live in love and harmo-[F]-ny [C]

Lord this [C] world is [G7] filled with so much [C] trouble

In our [C] lives and [G7] up on every [C] screen

But You’ve [F] promised there’s a better land a-[C]-comin

Until [C] then we'll live to [G7] bring Your peace to [C] earth [C7] 



Wipe every [F] tear from each eye

Oh send Your [C]comfort oh comfort

Meet us [F] here in this darkness

Bring Your [C] light, bring Your [G7] light 


Bring Your [F] li—ight

Bring Your [C] li—ight

Bring Your [F] li—ight

Bring Your [C ]li—ight Bring Your [G7] li—ight
