G C/G D G
>From a distance, the world looks blue and green
C D G D C/G
And the snow capped mountains white
G C D G
>From a distance, the ocean meets the stream
G/B C D G D
And the eagle takes to flight
G Cmaj7 D Em
>From a distance, there is harmony
C G/B G/D D
And it echoes through the land
C G/B C G/B
It’s the voice of hope, it’s the voice of peace
C D G D C/G G C G/D D
It’s the voice of every man

>From a distance, we all have enough

And no one is in need

There are no guns, no bombs, no disease,

No hungry mouths to feed

>From a distance, we are instruments

Marching in a common band

Playing songs of hope, playing songs of peace

They’re the songs of every man

G/C C D G Em
God is watching us, God is watching us,
Em7 Am7 C/D D G
God is watching us, from a distance

>From a distance, you look like my friend

Even though we are at war

>From a distance, I can’t comprehend

What all this war is for

>From a distance, there is harmony

And it echoes through the land

It’s the hope of hopes, it’s the love of loves,

It’s the heart of every man

G/C C D G Em
And God is watching us, God is watching us,
Em7 Am7 C/D D G
God is watching us, from a distance
G/B Am7 C/D Em7 G/B C Am7 D G
Oh God is watching us, from a distance
