He Sent a Carpenter 


G            C                   G                    C
In a manger filled with hay       The Virgin Mother's baby Lay 
G                             C               D
While shepherds stood there trembling at the sight
G                   C
This child was the King of Kings
G                     C
But God who knows and sees all things
         G            D                  G
Sent a simple man to show the world the light


Chorus:
          C           C            Am                G
He sent a carpenter, a carpenter to build His kingdom here
C                       C
A carpenter, He sent a carpenter
    Am                 D
To build on faith not fear
Em                            C
The proof lay in those nail scarred hands
Em                     C
So every heart could understand
            G           D                 C
He sent a carpenter to build His kingdom here


G              C 
His father's house here on earth
G                      C
Was built on faith and by His works
G                          C            D
Grew strong just like the rock it stood upon
G                      C
Then God spoke to His only Son
G                              C
And told him that his job was done
           G              D              G
When that last nail was finally driven home.


Chorus; Instrumental


Em                           C
The proof lay in those nail scarred hands
   Em                    C
So every heart could understand
            G           D                C
He sent a carpenter to build His kingdom here
           G            D                 G
He sent a carpenter to build His kingdom here
