What A Saviour is a simple yet very powerful song from the Open Heaven / River Wild album. It’s quickly becoming one of my favorites from this album (which is very good all the way through). On the album it is in the key of B, which is suitable for most male vocalists. In our resources, we play it in the key of B (capo 4 using key of G chords)

This is a simple song with four basic chords, and a variation of the C chord (or E in the open B key) – a C6. To play the C6, simply bar your first finger and fret the D and G strings on the 2nd fret.
Chords used in this song
I’ve listed the basic strumming pattern below for this song, but you’ll really want to vary your strumming in this one. It’s a slow ballad so dynamics are very important. Especially in the slower/softer section, you’ll want to strum less. There are also quite a few chord changes that happen after one beat. In these cases, down-strums on the beat will be helpful.
