Splinters And Stone (Hillsong)

Artist: Hillsong United
Words and Music: Joel Houston, Matt Crocker
Album: Wonder
Release: 2017
Tempo: 75 beats per minute
Key: D
Details: Reading the lyrics, I realized yeah it is right that God offered His love in return of our worst. Most of us  come to God when we experience difficulties, yes in our worst in our heavy heart. And God without a question, He do help us every time. In our weaknesses God shows His greatness.

I like the song on appreciating God’s helping hand in our worst. This is the reason why we experience bad things. It is common to hear a word of, “why God let bad things happen to good people” this is the reason. Because the only way for us to appreciate help is when we need it. Though God is always helping us either asking or not asking for it but the only way we can appreciate His presence is if we acknowledge our weakness and surrender everything to him. 

Intro
B

Verse 1
B                                                                       G#m
Fate, holds nothing on the providence I know
                                                                          E
No longer bound to things of wood and stone
                                                          B
When all I had to offer was my worst
B
You saw my heavy heart and loved me first
                                                              G#m
Your beauty staring down my brokenness
                                                                        E
You chose to throw Your heart into the mess
                                                                B
Compassion crashing down upon my debt
                          F#
You were there

Pre-Chorus 1
B              G#m
All this time
            E                                                           B
Like a river running through my failure
         F#                             G#m
You carried me all this time
                E                                           B
Like the splinters buried in Your shoulders
                          F#
You carry me now

Chorus 1
           B
Hallelujah
                                                            G#m
If ever now my heart cries Hallelujah
                                                                 E
If ever now in the wonder of Your grace
                                                                          B
A thousand times, a thousand years my soul

Will say

Verse 2
B                                                                                     G#m
Grace, You saw the crushing weight my flesh deserved
                                                                    E
You kneeled and wrote forgiveness in the dirt
         B
And one by one the stones fell where they lay
                                                                        G#m
‘Cause one by one my accusers walked away
                                                                         E
With nothing left to throw they made a cross
                                                                   B
And knowing only love could count the cost
                          F#
You were there

Pre-Chorus 2
B              G#m
–All this time
            E                                                    B
Like a river running through my failure
        F#                              G#m
You carried me all this time
                E                                          B
Like the splinters buried in Your shoulders
          F#                             G#m
Your love carried all my shame
       B
Jesus, how my soul will praise You
        F#                             G#m
You carried me all this way
            E                                                 B
Like a diamond in the scars upon Your crown
                          F#
You carry me now

Chorus 2
          B

                                                            G#m
If ever now my heart cries Hallelujah
                                                                E
If ever now in the wonder of Your grace
                                                                         B
A thousand times, a thousand years my soul

Will say
           B

Forever now in the brightness of Your name
                                                         B          F#
Jesus on this rock I’ll sing Your praise
