Whole Heart (Hold Me Now) by Hillsong

Artist: Hillsong United
Words and Music:  Joel Houston & Aodhan King
Album: People
Release: 2019
Details: The song is easy to play once you listen to it a couple of times. When I used to learn the chords, I noticed that there was a part that I really don’t need to play the entire chords. Just of for the intro, we can play an E for the entire bar and let the lead guitar play his part. But if you are going to play this song, with acoustic guitar, you should play the family chord of A or E-A-C#m-B so it will complete the harmony of the song.

In instrumental part, you need to play the intro part six times and for the seventh you need only to play E-A while the C#m and so on will proceed to chorus. See that the first chord in chorus is C#m. You can also listen to the song carefully to check the progress of the song. Also take note that Hillsong has different version so expect that there will be difference in how the song progress with verse, chorus etc. But regarding with the chords, they usually use the same chord progression so there is nothing to worry with the chords we indicated below.

Intro
E-A-C#m-B x2

Verse 1
                 A
Hold me now
            E                                        B
In the hands that created the heavens

Find me now
                     E                                               B
Where the grace runs as deep as Your scars

                            C#m        A
You pulled me from the clay

Set me on a rock

Called me by Your Name

And made my heart whole again

Verse 2
             A
Lifted up
                E                                                B
And my knees know it’s all for Your glory
                     A
That I might stand
                     E                                        B
With more reasons to sing than to fear

Verse 3
                  A     -E
And that grace
                                                     B
Owns the ground where the grave did
                      A                             E
Where all my shame remains
                                        B
Left for dead in Your wake
                                                 A
You crashed those age-old gates
         E                                   B
You left no stone unturned
          C#m                           A
You stepped out of that grave
E                                                B
And shouldered me all the way
