[Verse 1]
        G            C           D         G
From a distance the world looks blue and green,
         C           D         G     C  D
and the snow-capped mountains white.
        G           C      D          G
From a distance the ocean meets the stream,
         C     D          G
and the eagle takes to flight.

[Refrain 1]
          C       D        Em
From a distance, there is harmony,
        C        G           D
and it echoes through the land.
           C       G             C          G
It's the voice of hope, it's the voice of peace,
          C        D     G    C 
it's the voice of every man.

[Verse 2]
       G          C      D    G
From a distance we all have enough,
     C     D      G      C
and no one is in need.                                                                                        
G          C           D     Em                   
And there are no guns, no bombs, and no disease,
C          D          G
no hungry mouths to feed.

[Refrain 2]
        C        D         Em
From a distance we are instruments
         C    G        D
marching in a common band.
         C        G               C      G
Playing songs of hope, playing songs of peace.
             C       D     G
They're the songs of every man.
          C      D          G       Em
God is watching us. God is watching us.
        Am               D    G
God is watching us from a distance.

[Verse 3]
      G         C        D          G
From a distance you look like my friend,
       C      D        G        C
even though we are at war.
        G       C             D     Em
From a distance I just cannot comprehend
C               D           G      C
  what all this fighting is for.

[Refrain/Outro]
        C        D       Em
From a distance there is harmony,
       C         G          D
and it echoes through the land.
             C         G               
And it's the hope of hopes, 
          C        G
it's the love of loves,
          C          D  Em
it's the heart of every man.
         C        G              C        G
It's the hope of hopes, it's the love of loves.
            C       D      G
This is the song of every man.
           C        D          G        Em
And God is watching us, God is watching us,
        Am           D           G
God is watching us      from a distance.
           C        D         G     Em
Oh, God is watching us, God is watching.
       Am          D       G
God is watching us from a distance.
