Intro: Bm G Bm G Bm   F# Bm F# Bm F# Bm

  Bm                                 F#m                     Bm
Brother, there's a man at the gate, he has something in his hand,
                                                    G
He says it fell down from the sky, should I let him in?
                                                 Bm
Maybe it's an omen, maybe it will take away our sin, our sin.....

  Bm                             F#m                   Bm
'Tis a diamond that he has, the biggest one I've ever seen,
                                                         G
And when he holds it in his hand, it's shining like the sun,
                                                                A
He says it's from another world, he calls it the mirror of the soul,

          D      Bm     G      A     D        Bm  G        A
We must place it on the altar high, send the Devil to the fire,
 E          D                        A       G      G        A       Bm
Power over men we'll have when they see it shine, when they see it shine,

  Bm                           F#m                        Bm
Brother, fetch the Abbot now, tell him of this wondrous thing,
                                                             G
Tell him that we'll have control of all the riches it will bring,
                                                            Bm
When people come to see it, for money we will purify their souls, their souls,

 Bm                                     F#m                      Bm
With my knife I'll kill this man, I'll send him to the Promised Land,
      G                                                       A
And when we take the diamond, we will have the future in our hands, in our hands,

          D      Bm     G      A     D        Bm  G        A
When we place it on the altar high, send the Devil to the fire,
 Em         D                        A       G      G        A       D  Bm G A D Bm G A D
Power over men we'll have when they see it shine, when they see it shine!

Bm
                Bm                         D         A            G
That's how it started, that whole new religion, and people everywhere,
        G                       D           Em           F#
Had to give up all their possessions at the Abb St. Pierre,
                Bm                      D                  A                    E
But with their gold they could buy a redemption, and the promise of eternal life,
         G                      D         A
And the centre of it all was a diamond divine,

       D        Bm     G      A        D       Bm       G          A
It was up there on the altar high but for the monks it would not shine,
 Em            D                  A            G           A    Bm
So with subterfuge they used the light of the sun, fooling everyone,

        Bm                         D      A                   G
It was late at night when a young boy was in there with his friends,
          G                     D       Em                 F#
And they dared him up to the altar, to touch the famous gem,
             Bm                      D             A                  E
And when he did, the whole place exploded with a great and wonderful light,
         G               D               A
And the people came from everywhere to see,

         D               G      A    D               G        A
When he took it from the altar high, everyone could make it shine,
   Em            D                  A       G
Except the Abbot and his men, for them, no light,
                A        D   Bm G A D Bm G A Em D A G A D
They could not make it shine.

Dm Bb C
F           C   F                 Bb    Dm           Gm
 And in the end, many heard the brothers, making confession of the,
   Bb             C
 Things they had done,
F               C F             Bb               F   
 And the Abbot led that sad procession, as they went through the,
  C              Bb            C     F
 Gate past the place where it had begun

     C           Dm        Bb                C            Bb
 And all their dreams of glory, all their schemes and stories,
F               Gm           C
 Would come to nothing after all,
            Dm     Bb              Am          Bb
 Because a power greater from the world's creator,
          F                 C             Dm  Bb
 Gave us love to light the mirror of the soul,
       F                  C             F
 Only love can light the mirror of the soul,

F                 C    F               Bb     F            Gm
 All through the world, there are many others, who always follow
        Bb            C
 Everything they are told,
F             C   F         Bb        F              C    
 By men with rules and regulations, using old superstitions and
  Bb         C        F
 Tales to assume control,

     C           Dm        Bb                C          Bb
 But all their dreams of glory, all their schemes and stories,
F              Gm           C
 Will come to nothing after all,
            Dm     Bb              Am          Bb
 Because a power greater from the world's creator,
          F                 C             Dm  Bb
 Gave us love to light the mirror of the soul,
       F                  C             F   Dm Bb C Bb
 Only love can light the mirror of the soul,
F              Gm           C  
 They come to nothing after all,
            Dm     Bb              Am          Bb
 Because a power greater from the world's creator,
          F                 C             Dm  Bb
 Gave us love to light the mirror of the soul,
       F                  C             F
 Only love can light the mirror of the soul.
