How He Loves: chord chart and more

This is the most requested song by far. The Ironic thing is that is it also the easiest song that I’ve ever written. Here is a PDF chord chart:

  • Here are a couple different versions:
    (why haven’t more guys done this song?)

    Kim Walker

    1. hey man! Love your music. Especially your lyrics. How ’bout some help with skeleton bones? I can get the root notes but can’t seem to figure out your chord fingering to give it “that sound”. I’ve watched a vid on YouTube of it over and over but to no avail. Nick

    2. Hey. Can you put out the chord chart for Ten Thousand? That’d be great.

    3. Hey John,BTW, I did your song (How He Loves) at my sisters wedding. She and her groom never heard it before and it made them cry. So I’m a guy that has done your song.

    4. Totally dig your sound–I'll be at MorninStar for the New Year's shindig, and I was totally stoked when they added you'n'Sarah to the musicians =)I'd like to second the requests for Skeleton Bones & Ten Thousand, and add The Medicine, Carbon Ribs, Dress Us Up, and Death In His Grave to that 😉

      I sing your song all the time during worship at FCC. and being a guy, I think it’s a sweet song. haven’t heard many other guys sing it. but i think it sounds good either way. Although Kim Walker’s version blows me out of the water.

    10. Those are my friends in the Uke video haha, I’m so proud!

      Hi John Mark,Where can I find the video of you performing How He Loves, with you telling the story and everything? I see that it's no longer available on YouTube.I am just starting to hear your music, and learning about your music… it's great. Thank you for sharing your talent. Also thanks for writing about water and sanitation in Africa… I'm on my way there, to continue doing watsan aid work in Sudan. Such a need…
