part2 of chorus Am G F C


C                                         G
Though the Earth Cried out for blood
Am                                F
Satisfied her hunger was
        C                               G
Her billows calmed on raging seas
             Am                          F
for the souls on men she craved

C                                   G
Sun and moon from balcony
Am                                 F
Turned their head in disbelief
           C                                                    G
Their precious Love would taste the sting
     Am                F
disfigured and disdained


      C             G
On Friday a thief
      F                C
On Sunday a King
C                      G
Laid down in grief
        F                   C
But awoke with keys
      Am               G
Of Hell on that day
                 F                  C
The first born of the slain
        Am             G
The Man Jesus Christ

Laid death in his grave


C                                            G
So three days in darkness slept
        Am                        F
The Morning Sun of  righteousness
       C                               G
But rose to shame the  throes of death
         Am                  F
And over turn his rule

         C                                G
Now daughters and the sons of men
             Am                   F
Would pay  not their dues again
        C                               G
The debt of blood they owed was rent
                   Am                 F
When the day  rolled a new

He has cheated
Hell and seated
G                     F
Us above the fall
In desperate places
He paid our wages
G                                       F
One time once and for all
