A Strange Way To Save The World

Key   : G

                      G        A     G/B               D            Asus A
I'm sure he must have been surprised    at where this road had taken him
                  G        A   G/B               D              Asus A
'Cause never in a million lives   would he have dreamed of Bethlehem
     D/F#            G         A/C#             D
And standing at the manger  He saw with his own eyes
    Bm               E              Em7       A
The message from the angel come to life   and Joseph said…

    D  A/C#               Bm            D/A
Why me,       I'm just a simple man of trade
    G                  D/F#         Em7   A
Why Him, with all the rulers in the world
    D   A/C#              Bm                 D/A
Why here,     inside this stable filled with hay
    G                  D/F#     Em7  A
Why her, she's just an ordinary girl
    Bm             F#/A#             D/A            E/G#
Now I'm not one to second guess what angels have to say
                    Em7        A             G    A   D/F#   G
But this is such a strange way   to save the world

                   G          A   G/B              D            Asus A
To think of how it could have been,   if Jesus had come as He deserved
                         G      A  G/B           D              Asus A
There would have been no Bethlehem     No lowly shepherds at His birth
    D/F#            G           A/C#            D
But Joseph knew the reason Love had to reach so far
    Bm             E/G#          Em7       A
And as he held the Savior in his arms, he must have thought…
