E  [ch]G#m7/D#[/ch]        C#m7        E/B
There, out in the darkness
           A          F#m7
A fugitive running
Fallen from god
            E         [ch]G#m7/D#[/ch]
Fallen from grace
          C#m7        E/B
God be my witness
              A       F#m7
I never shall yield
Till we come face to face
Till we come face to face

He knows his way in the dark
B7                     E
Mine is the way of the Lord
                         F#m7                 B
And those who follow the path of the righteous
                   E        E7
Shall have their reward
And if they fall
As Lucifer fell
The flame
The sword!

[Same as first half]
In your multitudes
Scarce to be counted
Filling the darkness
With order and light
You are the sentinels
Silent and sure
Keeping watch in the night
Keeping watch in the night

You know your place in the sky
You hold your course and your aim
And each in your season
Returns and returns
And is always the same
And if you fall as Lucifer fell
You fall in flame!

              E                 [ch]G#m7/D#[/ch]
And so it has been and so it is written
       [ch]Bm7/D[/ch]      A/C#
On the doorway to paradise
               Am/C                 E/B
That those who falter and those who fall
     [ch]F#/A#[/ch]   B
Must pay the price!

G       Bm7/F#     Em7     G/D
            C          Am7
Lord let me find him
That I may see him
            G          Bm7/F#
Safe behind bars
       Em7             G/D
I will never rest
     C         Am7
Till then
This I swear
This I swear by the stars!
