Marvelous Light Chords
Marvelous Light
Charlie Hall
Key: G

Capo 4

Verse 1:
G                      C
I once was fatherless, a stranger with no hope
G                        C
Your kindness wakened me, wakened me from my sleep
G                           C
Your love it beckons deeply, a call to come and die
G                             C
By grace now I will come and take this life, take Your life

Em                         D
Sin has lost it's power, death has losts its sting
Em                              C
From the grave You've risen victoriously

Into marvelous light I'm running
 C                             Em
out of darkness, out of shame, by the cross
    D                   C
You are the truth, You are the life, You are the way

Verse 2:
G                            C
My dead heart is now beating, my deepest stains now clean
G                             C
Your breath fills up my lungs, now I'm free, now I'm free

G                               C
Lift my hands and spin around, see the light that I have found
Em                       D         C
O the marvelous light, marvelous light

About the artist behind Marvelous Light Chords:

United States Live was the third album release by avant-garde singer-songwriter Laurie Anderson. Released as a five-LP box set (later reissued on four CDs), United States Live was recorded at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York City in February 1983.

United States was Anderson's magnum opus performance art piece featuring musical, spoken word, and animated vignettes about life in America. Segments ranged from humorous, such as "Yankee See" which gently chided Anderson's record label Warner Brothers for signing her in the first place, to the apocalyptic anthem "O Superman" which had been an unexpected Top 10 hit for Anderson on the UK music charts in 1981.

Originally, United States (which was originally titled America on the Move) was presented over the course of two nights, running some eight hours. The United States Live box set is a truncated rendering of the performance, omitting many segments that were solely of a visual nature.

Among the songs performed on the album was "Language is a Virus (from Outer Space)", a pop-like song based upon a phrase attributed to William S. Burroughs. Anderson would later perform a modified arrangement of the song in her 1986 concert film, Home of the Brave.

Although Anderson has since created numerous other major performance pieces (i.e. Moby-Dick, Stories from the Nerve Bible, Happiness, The End of the Moon), United States Live remains, to date, the only serious attempt at producing anything approaching a full-length recording of any of these performances, although her previous album Big Science and her segment of the compilation You're the Guy I Want to Share My Money With consisted of studio-recorded excerpts from United States.
