Verse:
AbAb chord              BbBb chord
Two months is too little
EbEb chord               GmGm chord
They let him go, they had no
AbAb chord        BbBb chord
Sudden healing
AbAb chord             BbBb chord
To think that providence would
EbEb chord                   GmGm chord                AbAb chord
Take a child from his mother while she prays
     BbBb chord        BbBb chord
Is appalling


AbAb chord              BbBb chord
Who told us we'd be rescued
EbEb chord               GmGm chord                    AbAb chord 
What has changed and why should we be saved
     BbBb chord
From nightmares
AbAb chord              BbBb chord
We're asking why this happens
EbEb chord        GmGm chord              AbAb chord 
To us, who have died to live
       BbBb chord     
It's unfair

Chorus:
BbBb chord            EbEb chord           GmGm chord         AbAb chord
This is what it means to be held, how it feels
         BbBb chord        EbEb chord              GmGm chord
When the sacred is torn from your life
AbAb chord          
And you survive
BbBb chord            EbEb chord           GmGm chord         AbAb chord
This is what it is to be loved, and to know
         BbBb chord        EbEb chord              GmGm chord
That the promise was when everything fell
AbAb chord         BbBb chord    BbBb chord
We'd be held


AbAb chord              BbBb chord
This hand is bitterness
EbEb chord               GmGm chord                    AbAb chord 
We want to taste it, let the hatred numb
     BbBb chord
Our sorrow
AbAb chord              BbBb chord
The wise hand opens slowly
EbEb chord         GmGm chord              AbAb chord 
To lillies of the valley and 
     BbBb chord
Tomorrow

Chorus:
BbBb chord            EbEb chord           GmGm chord         AbAb chord
This is what it means to be held, how it feels
         BbBb chord        EbEb chord              GmGm chord
When the sacred is torn from your life
AbAb chord          
And you survive
BbBb chord            EbEb chord           GmGm chord         AbAb chord
This is what it is to be loved, and to know
         BbBb chord        EbEb chord              GmGm chord
That the promise was when everything fell
AbAb chord         BbBb chord    BbBb chord
We'd be held

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
