C G There's a story that started on Christmas C G When a baby was born in the night F C And those who came far, who followed the star Am F G G Were seeing a heavenly sight... Bb F F C Bb F F-G a heavenly sight. C Am G C Well the years hurried by, and the boy, now a man Am F Bb Could make the blind see with a touch of his hand Am F C He was born to be King -- he was Rabbi and Priest Am F G But the best that he had, he gave to the least... Bb F F C He gave to the least. F Am G C He was born and he died, almost 2,000 years ago F Am G C He laughed and he cried, he felt all the fears we know F Am G A2 But what does it matter? A story so strange... Bb G Even if it is true, what does it change? Bb F Bb F What does it change? C Am G C Well he spoke like a prophet -- like no one they'd heard Am F Bb This simple young carpenter -- crowds hung on every word Am F C He hated injustice -- He taught what is right Am F G He said "I'm the way, and the truth, and the light." F Am G C His friends soon believed that truly he was the one. F Am G C The Savior, Messiah, God's one and only son. F Am G A2 But others, they doubted, they did not agree Dm So they took him, they tried him, F G He died on a tree... C He died on a tree. F C God has made a way G Am for all who mourn and grieve F C Am G Death will never be the end F G C if you just believe. C There is nothing left to fear Am G C nothing Heaven knows F G Am G For he died for us to give us life F G C and to give us hope He rose F G Am G He died for us to give us life F G C And to give us hope He rose.
