King of My Heart – Bethel Music // John Mark McMillan

Chord Charts

The chords are available here from Bethel Music. The chords there are in the album key of Ab, so to play in D (our videos are in D), you’ll need to transpose them.


Artist: Elevation Worship
Album: There Is A Cloud
album info: Album Key: A (male – high), 4/4 time, 80 bpm

In this play through and tutorial, I’m playing in the open key of D, which is suited for a male vocal. The Bethel Music version is in Ab, and suited for a female lead vocal (although G might be easier).
