What type of progression is this?

I have the original sheet music to this song but, it is so hard for me
get the beat of it. Do anybody got any suggestions?
I would surely appreciate it. Thanks,

Hey sis (Rshay),

Do you know where I can get the sheetmusic? I've been looking all over for it.
I need to study this song for a service somewhere mid-december, but I'm expected to play it with all the runs, all the passing chords.
So I'll really need it.

Blessings,

David
