707 Hymn of Promise

Hymn Of Promise
Capo 3

In the bulb, there is a flower; 
in the seed, an apple tree;
in cocoons, a hidden promise:
butterflies will soon be free!
       G                D      
in the cold and snow of winter
there's a spring that waits to be,
unrevealed until its season, 
          Em   A        D    
something God alone can see.

  1. Can you make this to print out more fully — spaced as the other ones are? Thanks!

  2. Wonderful! Thanks!

  3. How about something like:
    D on “bulb”, Em on “seed”, A7 on “cocoons”, D on “…flies” (to D7 on “free”), G on “cold”, D on “winter”, Em on “spring”, F# (or F#7) on “waits”, Bm on “be”, G on “..vealed”, D on “season”, Em on “God”, A7 on “can”, resolve to D on “see”

    This is more playable with the hymnal version and puts the changes on the correct syllable. Thanks

  4. Thanks for your suggestions, I’ll take a look.

  5. I’ve updated the post with some of your suggestions. I really need to overhaul a lot of the older posts on this blog; some of them have some issues.
