Sidenote: I think that you'll notice that the chords to this song are very pretty! Especially the D/F#, A, D/C#, D/B, if you go to an E after that, its an awfully sweet tune.
(For anyone wondering, the radio version of "Be Near" is the same as the Cd version, just a little faster)
Intro to the song played slowly: Bm, G, Bm, G
Thats the same thing as the verse, played every eight counts.
Then the prechorus:
For dark is light to You
The Depths are height to You
Far is near, But Lord I need to hear from You
Be near O God
Be near O God of us
Is to us our good
Verse two is the same as verse one, then prechrous and chorus again, and you repeat the chorus at the end.
