{Verse 1}
F#m9            A2/C#          Dmaj7
Long can be the night of our struggle
F#m9            A2/C#          Dmaj7
Deep can be the wounds of this life
    F#m9             A2/C#        Dmaj7
But hope lives on in spite of our trials
    Bm7    F#m7       Esus       Bm7    F#m7       Esus
And these  soon shall pass, yes, these  soon shall pass

{Chorus}
A                         D     A
You take the world off my shoulders
    F#m          Amaj7/E      Bm/D     A
The weight of it all off my   shoulders
A                           D     A
You breathe Your hope, You watch over
        F#m      Amaj7/E        D               A          D    A
And You take the world, all the weight of this world  [1.]

{Verse 2}
F#m9               A2/C#          Dmaj7
There are times of tears and of trouble
   F#m9               A2/C#       Dmaj7
We wander through the darkness of night
    F#m9             A2/C#         Dmaj7
But hope will shine inside of this battle
    Bm7    F#m7       E2/G#    A    Bm7   F#m7      Esus        E      E7/D
And this   too shall pass,     yes, this  too shall pass. But until it does

The weight of it all off my shoulders
