From "Not Of This World", Petra

Transcription by Jason Brown (


Intro: Dm C2 Dm C2 (Someday Iíll tab the opening lick)

Dm Dm/C Bbmaj7 C Asus4 A7

1.There's a step that we all take alone, an appointment we have with the great unknown.

2. Many still mourn, many still weep for those that they love who have fallen asleep

Dm Bbmaj7 C Asus4 A7

Like a vapor this life is just waiting to pass, like the flowers that fade like the withering grass.

But we have this hope, though our hearts may still ache, just one shout from above and they all will awake.

(To @ 2nd time)


Dm Bbmaj7 C Asus4 A7

But life seems so long, and death so complete, and the grave an impossible portion to cheat.

Dm Bbmaj7 C Asus4 A7

But there's One who has been there, and still lives to tell. There is One who has been through both heaven and hell.


Am F G

And the grave will come up empty-handed that day. Jesus will come and steal us away.

@ And in the reunion of joy we will see, death will be swallowed in sweet victory.


C G Am G

Where is the sting, tell me where is the bite when the grave robber comes like a thief in the night?

C G Am F G Dm (intro 1stx)

Where is the victory, where is the prize, when the grave robber comes, and death finally dies?

Am G Am Bb F

When the last enemy is gone, from the dust will come a song.

Am G Am Bb F G

Those asleep will be awakened, not a one will be forsaken.

Am G Am Bb F

He shall wipe away our tears, He will steal away our fears.

Am G Am Bb F G

There will be no sad tomorrow, there will be no pain or sorrow. ( To Chorus, out)
