This week’s “Song of The Week” goes to Awakening, written by Chris Tomlin and Reuben Morgan. This song was first released on the Passion 2010 CD Awakening, performed by Chris Tomlin and the Passion Band. It is such a powerful song about this generation needing to be awoken by God. Awakening has recently been included in the Album Aftermath, by Hillsong United. I hope you enjoy this song, and may it help awaken your spirit.

Song Title: Awakening
By: Chris Tomlin and Reuben Morgan
Performed by: Chis Tomlin and the Passion Band (Key of Eb)| Hillsong United (Key of E)
Album(s): Awakening | Aftermath

||     Hillsong United – Awakening     ||      Chris Tomlin – Awakening     ||

These tabs are in the key of E to match Hillsong United’s version of the song. It is much easier to play their variation of the song. If you want to play it in Chris Tomlin’s version, simpling add a “flat” to each note (in other words, play each note a half step lower)

Intro: E - B - A - E

Verse 1:
         E                   B    A      E
In our hearts Lord, in this nation awakening
      E           B   A     E
Holy Spirit we desire awakening

            A           C#m            E                 B
For You and You alone, awake my soul, awake my soul and sing
          A                   C#m                    E               B
For the world You love, Your will be done, let Your will be done in me

Verse 2:
         E                B     A      E
In Your presence, in Your power, awakening

For this moment, for this hour, awakening

(Chorus x2)

Bridge (x2):
                A              F#m                  C#m
Like the rising sun that shines, from the darkness comes a light
E                    F#m        A      F#m     B
I hear Your voice and this is my awakening

Like the rising sun that shines, awake my soul, awake my soul and sing

Like the rising sun that shines, awake my soul, awake my soul and sing
              A             C#m            E                 B
Only You can raise a life, awake my soul, awake my soul and sing
