Garments (Cory Asbury)

Artist: Cory Asbury
Words and Music: Cory Asbury, Nate Moore & Tony Brown
Album: Reckless Love
Release: 2018
Tempo: 79 beats per minutes
Key: F#
Details: The song telling us that despite how negative we see things, still God will make it positive beyond we can imagine. Because God is God of positivity even in sacrifice He saw it as triumph for us.

Regarding with this song and just like with any of his songs, it is easy to play with only 4 chord progression. What I found difficult Cory Asbury’s songs are being on key of B. For beginners, it is not easy to play a song with F# and B throughout the song. It requires finger endurance to keep the song of chords accurate. To make it easier to play you can put a capo on 2nd fret and play the song in D-E-F#m-A chord progression.

Verse 1
F#                                 B
And I saw my ashes, but You saw Your dream
F#                                    B
And I saw an orphan, You were my family
F#                                   B
And I saw my frailty, but You saw Your might
F#                                        B
And I saw my blindness, but You were the light

Chorus
                       F#                               G#m
You give me garments of praise, fullness of joy
Bbm                           B
Unending mercy, new every morning
F#                                  G#m
Garments of praise, fullness of joy
Bbm                          B                                 
Unending mercy, new every morning

Verse 2
F#                                   B
And I saw the water, but You saw the wine
F#                                            B
And I saw dead branches, but You were the vine
F#                                          B
And I saw my weakness, but You saw Your blood
F#                                    B                                       G#
And I saw my failure, but You were enough

*Repeat Chorus

Bridge
                       F#                                                 G#m
‘Cause I was lost, ’til You called me out by name
                   Bbm                                           B
And I was down, ’til You picked me up again
                   F#                                                       G#m
And I was wrong, ’til Your love it made me right
           Bbm                                              B
I was dead, ’til You sang me back to life
                   F#                                                G#m
And I was lost, ’til You called me out by name
           Bbm                                          B
I was down, ’til You picked me up again
           F#                                                      G#m
I was wrong, ’til Your love it made me right
           Bbm                                              B
I was dead, ’til You sang me back to life
