This song has long been one of our favorite songs for us to play together. Great song.


Enjoy playing along with the chords to this song!

Their (C)chains were fastened (G)tight, (F)down at the jail that (C)night
Still (F)Paul and Silas (G)would not be dis(C)mayed (G)
They said, “It’s (C)time to lift our (G)voice, (F)sing praises to the (C)Lord
Let’s (F)prove that we will (G)trust Him come what (C)may” (G)

God (C)wants to hear you (G)sing
When the (F)waves are crashing (C)’round you
When the (F)fiery darts su(C)rround you
When (F)despair is all you (G)see
God (C)wants to hear your (G)voice
When the (F)wisest man has (C)spoken
And says, “Your (F)circumstance is as (C)hopeless as can (G)be”
That’s when (F)God wants to (G)hear you (C)sing ((Am))

He loves to hear our praise on our cheerful days
When the pleasant times out weigh the bad, by far
But when suffering comes along, and we still sing Him songs
That is when we bless the Father’s heart.

I don't know who to give credit for anything about this track except maybe the people who put together a cd with this song on it.

As sisters, we've known eachother since, well, forever. We've always enjoyed messing around musically, and in 2011 Bethany picked up the mandolin and we played our first bluegrass-gospel-y gig.
