Original Key: Gm


Verse 1:
Gm                                B♭/F
  Beneath ev'ry doubt there's redemption
E♭                            Gm    B♭/F
  Beyond what we see, He's at work
E♭                      Gm                  B♭/F
  Before we believe, He hurt's when we're hurting
E♭                     Gm    B♭/F
He works in mysterious ways
Verse 2:
Gm                              B♭/F
  Above all the chaos, there's order
E♭                      Gm    B♭/F
  After the fire, He restores
E♭                            Gm        B♭/F
  At the end of the pain, His promise remains
   E♭                  Gm    B♭/F
He works in mysterious ways
Chorus:
   E♭                           Gm       B♭/F
So blessed are the poor and the powerless
E♭                            Gm         B♭/F
All the weak and wounded made whole again
    E♭                      Gm             B♭/F
And even what the enemy has tried to use against me
E♭                                       Gm    B♭/F
God will use it for my good and for His glory
             E♭                   Gm         B♭/F
Sometimes He works in reverse, He works in reverse
   E♭                   Gm         B♭/F
He works in reverse, He works in reverse
Verse 3:
Gm                                   B♭/F
  What looks like the end is the beginning
E♭                          Gm    B♭/F
  His kingdom's not of this world
E♭                     Gm             B♭/F
  When we surrender is when He takes over
   E♭                  Gm    B♭/F
He works in mysterious ways
Bridge:
E♭                            Gm   F
  And when it looks like it's over
                  E♭                       Gm      F
He's just getting started, it's just the beginning
Coda:
   E♭                    Gm
He works in reverse,  He works, He works in reverse

Beneath every doubt, there’s redemption
Beyond what we see, He’s at work
Before we believe, He hurts when we’re hurting
He works in mysterious ways

Above all the chaos, there’s order
After the fire, He restores
At the end of the pain, His promise remains
He works in mysterious ways

So blessed are the poor and the powerless
All the weak and wounded made whole again
And even what the enemy has tried to use against me
God will use it for my good and for His glory

Sometimes He works in reverse
He works in reverse
He works in reverse
He works in reverse

What looks like the end is the beginning
His kingdom’s not of this world
When we surrender, that’s when He takes over
He works in mysterious ways

And when it looks like it’s over
He’s just getting started
It’s just the beginning

Impossible - Greg Sykes - Song Devotional

Some days I feel like a little boy in the face of a taunting giant as I look at my finances, my calendar or even a person at work with whom I need to have a difficult conversation.
