God Is My Refuge Chords
This Christian song was written by Deborah Kay Harrah of Centerpoint Music Co./BMI
It's one of my favorite songs and even though it is actually played on piano,
I finally figured out the chords on guitar :D
There's an outstanding version performed by Joseph Larson of Jimmy Swaggart Ministries.
This tab is inspired by that performance which made more famous this song at Church.
Hope you like it and God bless you!

*Capo on 1st fret --> as matching the common versions
NOTE: You can also use it without capo or with it on the 2nd or 3rd fret
(Whichever sounds good and it will depend on your vocal range).

[Chords used]:
C    - 032010
C/E  - 032013
C*   - xxx010
Cmaj7- 032000
C/G  - 332010
G    - 320030
G*   - 320033
G6   - 320000
D    - 000232
Dsus4- 000233
Asus4- 002230 or 002233

Note: Chords in parenthesis are optional. To keep it simple you could overlook them.
However, the effect with the chords in parenthesis sounds nice :)

[Intro]: (as with with Capo on the 1st fret)
        G                          C              D


[Verse 1]:
 G             (G*)   G        (G*)   C                (C/E)   C            (C/E)     
When clouds of doubt hover over me,  and the storms of life   toss me to and fro
   G        (G*)      G     (G*)       D     (Dsus4)   D   (Dsus4)
Oh there?s a place of refuge...    that I  can go
   G   (G*)       G     (G*)    C           (C/E)                  C        (C/E)    
He?s a shield for every tempest, and He?s an anchor, Oh that?s so sure and true
   G          (G*)        D      (Dsus4)  G    (G*)    D
In times like these It?s good for me  to know...

      G     C*   G6       C/G      (C/E)  (C/G) (C/E)
That God... I... is... my refuge... (thank you Lord Jesus!)
          D   (Dsus4)         D     (Dsus4)    C     D     C   Cmaj7 Cmaj7 C
He?s so strong... and mighty tower tha-a-t... I... can... run  to
      G     C*    G6     C/G       (C/E)  (C/G) (C/E)
That God... Is... ... my refuge...
   D5      (Dsus4)      D  (Dsus4)  C
Without Him    tell me what would I do

[Verse 2]:
 G             (G*)   G        (G*)   C                (C/E)    C             (C/E)     
Well, once I wandered far from His shelter? and just ahead I could not see,
    G        (G*)      G     (G*)          D    (Dsus4)  D    (Dsus4)
Oh those dark clouds, they were heavy and so full      with rain
    G    (G*)       G     (G*)    C           (C/E)                  C        (C/E)  
But when the winds blew hard and the bellows did roll in from the raging sea
   G          (G*)        D      (Dsus4)   G  (G*)    D
Peace came in the moment I called on Jesus?  name...

(Dsus4) G     C*    G6          C/G     
Now... God... I... is... ... my refuge (thank you Lord Jesus!)
          D   (Dsus4)          D   (Dsus4) C    D      C   Cmaj7 Cmaj7 C
He?s so strong... and mighty tower that... I... can... run   to
      G     C*    G6     C/G  
Well God... Is... ... my refuge
   D5      (D*)          D   (Dsus4)  C     D
Without Him     tell me what  would I do... Ye-e-s...
 G     C*    G6     C/G     
God... Is... ... my refuge (thank you Lord Jesus!)
          D   (Dsus4)          D   (Dsus4) C    D5      C   Cmaj7 Cmaj7 C
He?s so strong... and mighty tower that... I... can... run   to
      G     C*    G6     C/G  
That God... Is... ... my refuge
   D5      (Dsus4)      D   (Dsus4)  C
Without Him    tell me what  would I do
   D5                Asus4

About the artist behind God Is My Refuge Chords:

Contemporary Christian Music (or CCM; also by its religious neutral term "inspirational music") is a genre of popular music which is lyrically focused on matters concerned with the Christian faith. The term is typically used to refer to the Nashville, Tennessee-based pop, rock, and worship Christian music industry, currently represented by artists such as Aaron Shust, Amy Grant, Avalon, Chris Tomlin, David Crowder Band, Jars of Clay, Jeremy Camp, MercyMe, Michael W. Smith, Natalie Grant, Petra, Rebecca St. James, Steven Curtis Chapman, Third Day, and a host of others. The industry is represented in Billboard Magazine's "Top Christian Albums" and "Hot Christian Songs" charts,[1] and by Radio & Records magazine's Christian AC (Adult Contemporary), Christian CHR (Contemporary Hit Radio), Christian Rock, and Inspirational (INSPO) airplay charts,[2] as well as the iTunes Store's "Christian & Gospel" genre.

The term "Contemporary Christian Music" originated in the late 1960s in reference to the emerging pop and rock "Jesus music", the musical product of the Jesus Movement of the time.[3] The Mind Garage is considered the first Christian Rock band, with documentation going back to 1967 in local media and national magazines and newspapers such as The Village Voice, Billboard and Rolling Stone magazine. The Electric Liturgy (RCA Victor LSP-4319), recorded 1969 and released 1970, was the first Christian Rock album recorded in Nashville in RCA's "Nashville Sound" Studio A, on Music Row which was under the management of Chet Atken. Studio A is now a museum.

There is also a great deal of popular music which lyrically identifies with Christianity but is not normally considered Contemporary Christian Music.[3] For example, many punk, hardcore, and holy hip-hop groups deal explicitly with issues of faith but are not a part of the Nashville industry[citation needed] (e.g., Seattle-based Tooth and Nail Records). Also, several mainstream music artists sometimes deal with Christian themes in their work, such as Creed, Lifehouse, and Switchfoot, but fall outside of the CCM genre though they may receive airplay on CCM radio stations.[3]
