First verse:

        Dm	          G
Through your love and through the ram,

           C         F
You saved the son of Abraham;

        Bb           E/D
Through the power of your hand,

       Am           A
Turned the sea into dry land.

   Dm	         G
To the outcast on her knees,

         C           F
You were the God who really sees,

            Bb 
And by Your might,

           E/D     C
You set Your children free.


Repeat Chorus:
 

Second Verse:

Through the years You've made it clear,

     C           F
That the time of Christ was near,

       Bb	      E/D
Though the people couldn't see

     Am	      A
What Messiah ought to be.

            Dm	      G
Though Your Word contained the plan,

           C	    F
They just could not understand

       Bb         E/D 
Your most awesome work was done

        Am	     A
Through the frailty of Your Son.


Repeat Chorus twice:
