How Gentle God's Commands, again

As promised, here's the C version.  Actually, it's played very much like the A version, but uses more chords and a slightly different pattern pick.  For a really dynamite sound, start with the A version, play through the first verse, then do a key change by switching to the first verse of the C version, then switch back to the second verse of the A version, play the arpeggios in A, minus the final chord, and then change keys back to C again, for the last verse. Switching keys three times makes it sound hard, but it really is no harder than playing the whole song through once in each key.

I just stumbled through a hedge and found you, and boy am I glad! I've been looking everywhere for tabs for some hymns- I'm still a novice at guitar, but I love to play. Thanks for putting these links up!

I'll be checking back often now that I know you're here - and I'm sure to have lots of questions! Thank you so much!!

Hey Don,

I might make an MP3 out of this one next. I love this hymn. Also, I "think" the Am chords should be swapped out with F Maj. There's also a nice C7 just before transitioning to the F (specifically on the word "How" (C7) kind (F) His precepts are

Sure, MJ, go ahead! Either the way I wrote it, or with your changes. I put in the Am chords, for variety, so it wouldn't be just a copy of the earlier version, transposed to C. I like the C7 chords, too, and would use them for sure, especially for a vocal accompaniment.
