the two commandments

the eternal

This song is written in the first person because it is prophetic in nature. I received this revelation one day after having written 'confession' and I said jokingly to my husband "I like this song but I'd like to write something completely different". Then inspiration struck.

THE ETERNAL

Cm                                Bb
Men don't have the answers that I have
Cm                     Bb
Listen to my words not yours
Ab                              G
Swear not upon the idols of the earth
Ab                      Fm/D  Gm/D  Am/D  D
My Son gave you the new birth


CHORUS LEAD-IN:
F
Heaven awaits you
        G
But you can't forget living
F
I have given you life now
E
This is the eternal


CHORUS:
F#
Your treasures are with me my children
Db
Reach up and take them from my hands
F#
All you need is within me
Db             B - Bb
Just follow my plan


Cm                      Bb
Sometimes it seems I am gone
Cm                              Bb
But I haven't left, you're not alone
Ab                           G
I'm standing before you all around
Ab                                      Fm/D  Gm/D  Am/D  D
But you have to turn your gaze from the ground


CHORUS LEAD-IN REPEAT

CHORUS REPEAT


D
Take the treasure from my hands
    E                       F# - G#
And use it to build upon my plan


CHORUS (KEY CHANGE):
G#
Your treasures are with me my children
Eb
Reach up and take them from my hands
G#
All you need is within me
Eb            
Just follow my plan

REPEAT CHORUS TO FADE
