The days of our age    (video)

 

             F                                C

1. The days of our age are threescore years and ten,

               F                          Bb                     C       - C7

    and though men be so strong that they come.

          Bb                            F                        Dm

    To fourscore years, yet is their strength then,

           A                A7              Bb    C                Bb

    but labour and sorrow, so soon passeth it away,

           Bb   C    D        - F

    and we are gone.

 

      F                            C

2. And as for me, my feet are almost gone,

            Dm                Bb  F       C

    my treadings are well nigh slipped,

          Bb                                           F               Dm

    But let not the water flood drown me, neither let

             E                       Am                        F - G

    the deep swallow me up (swallow me u..........p).

 

           C                                             G

3. So going through the Vale of Misery,

                                 Dm                                              G

    I shall use it for a well, till the pools are filled with water.

             D#                           Bb

    For Thou hast made the North and the South,

     Cm                                     D                G

    Tabor and Hermon shall rejoice in thy name.
