Thanks for the post T-Block, I have a question. I was playing this while trying to understand the chior parts. Would these chords for the chior parts as well (EVERYBODY, FEEL FREE TO ANSWER)
If so the soprano part seems a bit high, what do you think. Again Im just getting into this chior part stuff and Im still learning. Please advise.

Wow, thanks for bringing this back up. I have been trying to get this song for a week now. God bless you.

Sorry i can't help with the choir parts.

Looking at this post, I just realized that I don't even play this song like this anymore. Here's an updated version:

"Praise Is What I Do"
Key Eb  LH/RH

Part 1:

Eb / Bb-Eb-G  Praise is what I
G / F-Bb-Eb  do, when I
Ab / Eb-Ab-C  wanna be
Bb / F-Bb-D  close to
C / G-C-Eb  You,
C / G-C-Eb  I
Bb / F-Bb-D  lift
Bb / Eb-G-C  my
Bb / D-F-Bb  hands
Bb / C-Eb-Ab  in
Eb / Bb-Eb-G  praise,
F / Eb-Ab-C
Bb / Ab-C-Eb
(repeat)


Part 2:

Eb / G-Bb-Eb  I
F / Ab-Db-F  vow
G / Bb-Eb-G  to
Ab / Bb-Eb-G  praise You, through the
G / F-Bb-Eb  good and the
C / G-Bb-Eb  bad,
Bb / Ab-Db-F  I'll
Ab / Bb-Eb-G  praise You, whether
G / F-Bb-Eb  happy or
C / G-Bb-Eb  sad,
Bb / Ab-Db-F  I'll
Ab / Bb-Eb-G  praise You, in
G / F-Ab-B-D  all that I go
C / G-C-Eb  through,
E / Bb-Db-E-G  because
F / C-Eb-Ab  praise
G / Bb-Eb-G  is
Bb / Ab-C-Eb  what I
Eb / G-Bb-Eb  do,
G / F-Bb-D  or  D / F-Bb-D
C / G-Bb-Eb  'cause I
F / C-Eb-Ab  owe   or    Db / Ab-C-Eb  owe
G / Bb-Eb-G  it       or    Eb / Bb-D-F  it
                                     F / C-Eb-Ab  all
Bb / Ab-C-Eb  all to       Bb / F-Bb-D  to
Eb / G-Bb-Eb  You,


Part 3:

Eb / G-Bb-Eb  praise
Db / Ab-Db-F  is
Cb / Bb-Eb-Gb  what
Bb / Db-F-Ab  I
Ab / Cb-Eb-Gb-Bb  do-
Db / Db-F-Ab  oo,
Bb / Ab-Db-F  is what I do,

Eb / Ab-Bb-Eb (bounce chord)    or    G / F-Bb-Eb
Eb / G-Bb-Eb  (bounce chord)            F / Ab-Bb-C-Eb
                                                         Eb / G-Bb-Eb
(repeat as many times as you like)

T-Block,

This is SOOO timely.  Our MOM wants our combined choirs  to do this song.  The pianist that normally plays for the combined choirs WILL NOT play anything that is not in sheet music form and she WILL NOT vary one note or even a 1/8th rest from what is written.  Not a complaint, just the way it is. 

My son can play this from your chord charts and we'll all be happy!

Thanks!
