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

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