C#                Bbm                C#                 Bbm
In the time of my confession, in the hour of my deepest need
         C#            Bbm                   Ab   Absus   Ab
When the pool of tears beneath my feet flood every newborn seed
          C#          Bbm       C#               Bbm
There's a dyin' voice within me reaching out somewhere,
C#             Bbm           Ab      Asusb  Ab
Toiling in the danger and in the morals of despair.
                 Ab7                C#             Ab
Don't have the inclination to look back on any mistake,
                 Ab7                   C#                  Ab
Like Cain, I now behold this chain of events that I must break.
       C#           Bbm         C#                Bbm
In the fury of the moment I can see the Master's hand
     C#             Bbm          Ab     Absus      C#
In every leaf that trembles and, in every grain of sand.
C#                 Bbm                C#             Bbm
Oh, the flowers of indulgence and the weeds of yesteryear,
C#                        Bbm                   Ab       Absus
Like criminals, they have choked the breath of conscience and good
Ab
cheer.
C#                Bbm               C#                Bbm
The sun beat down upon the steps of time to light the way
  C#                Bbm              Ab    Absus  Ab
To ease the pain of idleness and the memory of decay.
Ab              Ab7        C#                 Ab
I gaze into the doorway of temptation's angry flame
Ab              Ab7              C#             Ab
And every time I pass that way I always hear my name.
    C#            Bbm       C#          Bbm
Then onward in my journey I come to understand
C#                 Bbm           Ab             C#
That every hair is numbered like every grain of sand.
C#                       Bbm           C#           Bbm
I have gone from rags to riches in the sorrow of the night
C#                   Bbm                     Ab     Absus    Ab
In the violence of a summer's dream, in the chill of a wintry light,
       C#              Bbm        C#          Bbm
In the bitter dance of loneliness fading into space,
       C#               Bbm          Ab   Absus    Ab
In the broken mirror of innocence on each forgotten face.
Ab                 Ab7                C#           Ab
I hear the ancient footsteps like the motion of the sea
Ab                        Ab7                  C#             Ab

Sometimes I turn, there's someone there, other times it's only me.
C#                  Bbm          C#               Bbm
I am hanging in the balance of a perfect finished plan
      C#           Bbm           Ab              C#
Like every sparrow falling, like every grain of sand
