Notes:  This is a pretty easy little song, but you really need to listen to
the CD to get that Dwight feel for bass runs and vocalization.  Otherwise,
nothing fancy to worry about.

G                   C           G
The darkest hour is just before dawn.
The narrow way leads home.
    G                 C      G
Lay down your soul at Jesus’ feet.
                     D           G
The darkest hour is just before dawn.

G                   C
The saddest soul is thinking,
     G                 D
Of a day that’s almost gone.
      G               C
Still darkness falls around us,
    G       D       G
And we must journey on.

[Chorus] x3
G                          C
Like a shepherd out on the mountain,
  G                         D
A-watching his sheep down below,
     G              C
He’s coming back to claim us.
     G      D        G
Will you be ready to go?
