The ToneWay® Project: helping people play music

Green Pastures

Trouble and tri- (5) als (1) often be- 4 tray those
All in the 1 weary body to 5 stray
But we shall 1 walk (5) be- (1) side the still 4 waters
With the good 1 shepherd 5 leading the 1 way

Going up home (5) to (1) live in green 4 pastures
Where we shall 1 live and die never 5 more
Even the 1 lord (5) will (1) be in that 4 number
When we have 1 reached that 5 heavenly 1 shore

Those who have strayed were sought by the master
He who once gave his life for the sheep
Out on the mountain still he is searching
Bringing them in forever to keep

We will not heed the voice of a stranger
For he will lead us all to despair
Following on with Jesus our savior
We shall all reach that country so fair

The ToneWay Project also offers songbooks, CDs, and a free online video series for learning to play music by ear.
