Song of Hope — Chords in G

Golly.  The world of worship songs needs more women songwriters.  All these guys sing in un-singable keys, like C#.  Until then, I’ll keep transposing*. 

I just thought I’d upload the words and guitar chords to my current fave, Song of Hope by the Robbie Seay Band, which I transposed to G.  It’s a PDF.


*Well, and I need to keep writing songs myself.  I constantly have ideas and snippets circling ’round my head, and on bits of paper stuck here and there.  But, I don’t often-enough sit down and make an actual song out of the ideas.  And, for anyone who knows me IRL, and who go to my church, and who’s curious about the songs we do there which have both Martin’s name and my name on them as authors — he’s generous.  It usually means that I contributed, oh, 2-10% of the melody and/or 10-30% of the words for a song he’s written.

About Karen Joy

I'm a partially-homeschooling mother of six -- 3 boys ages 19, 17 and 15 years old, and three girls: 11, 8, and 3. I like birding, reading, writing, organic gardening, singing, playing guitar, hiking, the outdoors, and books. I very casually lead a very large group of homeschooling families in the Phoenix area. I have a dear hubby who designs homes for a local home builder and who is the worship pastor of our church. I live in the desert, which I used to hate, but now appreciate.

  1. Are any of your songs available to hear someplace on the web? My church just started using one of my songs – I’m pretty happy about that and would like to write more. I’d like to be in touch with other writers/musicians/worship leaders… maybe try “talking shop”. 🙂

  2. Nope, njrondeau. One was recorded (by my husband and me and a friend with some really nice recording equipment) a few years ago, but that’s about it. We keep saying we’re going to record our songs, but it hasn’t happened yet. Soon, hopefully.

  3. Thank you Karen. I appreciate it. As worship leader, I’m always looking for the next song and my daughter informed that this is the one. Song of Hope. As a baritone singer, I’m constantly bringing the songs back into a more pleasing chord for the church. God Bless.

  4. I appreciate this song in G. Thanks so much. God Bless!
