Courageous Chords
Song: Courageous
By: Casting Crowns
Album: Come To The Well (Scheduled to be released late 2011. Date not yet set.)
Theme Song from the upcoming movie "Courageous: Honor Begins at Home"
Submitted by: Nicholas Zamora

Note: This is the first time I have ever submitted any sort of tab to any website.  I 
probably never will again but there are some lyrics that have been
posted on the web that are incorrect and as my church prepared to do this song there 
were no tabs available.  As far as I can find this is the
first chord sheet or tab for this song on the web.  In the bridge most lyrics online 
state "Walk on. Be with your God".
However, we believe the lyrics actually are "Walk humbly with your God". Check it out 
for yourself.

Intro:
                       F#m7
We were made to be courageous
                         D
We were made to lead the way
                     Asus2
We could be the generation
                         E (hold)
the finally breaks the chains

Chorus 1:
                       D  Asus2  F#m7  E
We were made to be courageous
                       D  Asus2  E (hold)
We were made to be courageous

Verse 1:
                         F#m7
We were warriors on the front lines
                D
Standing, unafraid
                             Asus2
But now were watchers on the sidelines
                          E
While our families slip away
                        F#m7
Where are you men of courage?
                          D
You were made for so much more
                          Asus2
Let the pounding of our hearts cry
                  E
We will serve the Lord

Chorus 2:
                        D
 We were made to be courageous
          Asus2           E
And were taking back the fight
                       D
We were made to be courageous
          F#m7           Asus2
And it starts with us tonight

D               Asus2
The only way we'll ever stand
            F#m7                E
Is on our knees, we're lifting hands
            D  Asus2  F#m7
Make us courageous
E                 D  Asus2  E (hold)
Lord, make us courageous

Verse 1:
This is our resolution
Our answer to the call
We will love our wives and children
We refuse to let them fall
We will reignite the passion
That we buried deep inside
May the watchers become warriors
Let the men of God arise

Instrumental:  D  Asus2  F#m7  E  D  
Asus2  F#m7  E

Bridge 1
D            Asus2       F#m7         E
Seek justice. Love mercy. Walk humbly with your God.
D            Asus2       F#m7         E
Seek justice. Love mercy. Walk humbly with your God.

Bridge 2
In the war of the mind I will make my stand
In the battle of the heart and the battle of the hand

About the artist behind Courageous Chords:

Casting Crowns is a Grammy award and Dove Award winning Christian band that employs a soft rock music style. The band was created in 1999 by youth pastor Mark Hall at First Baptist Church in Downtown Daytona Beach, Florida as part of a Youth Group. He also serves as a lead vocalist. Later they moved to McDonough, Georgia and more members joined creating the band now known as Casting Crowns. Some members of the band currently work as ministers for Eagles Landing First Baptist Church in McDonough, Georgia.

Discovered by, among others, contemporary Christian music legend Steven Curtis Chapman, Casting Crowns received a recording contract and vaulted to popularity in 2003 with their self-titled debut album Casting Crowns. The album quickly made them one of the fastest selling debut artists in Christian music history. Lifesong followed in 2005, debuting at #9 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart. Both albums have been certified Platinum. The band's third album The Altar and the Door debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart and #1 on the Hot Christian Albums chart upon its release in August of 2007. Ten weeks after it came out it was certified Gold.

Casting Crowns has enjoyed tremendous success in the United States. They have released eight singles to date, seven of which have become consecutive number one hits on various Christian music charts. "Voice of Truth" spent a record-breaking fourteen consecutive weeks at #1 beginning in 2003. “Lifesong” spent nine weeks in the top spot, with “Praise You In This Storm” remaining at #1 for seven weeks. Casting Crowns broke their own record in 2007 when the single "East To West" from The Altar and the Door hit sixteen consecutive weeks at #1. The song ended up enjoying the top spot for a total of nineteen weeks, now their most successful single to date.
