Especially the questionable chord below (something like a G7?)

When Love Came Down

Bb         F        Eb        Bb     
Close your eyes and share the dream

Let everyone on earth believe
    Bb        F         Eb          Bb   
The Child was born, the stars shone bright

Bb
Christmas Eve, 2 am
      Bbsus2  F7           
Heavy snow is falling down
Bb                             
And the streets clothed in white
     Bbsus2           F7            
Echo songs that were sung by candlelight 

Bb        F        Eb       Bb    (chorus               
F         Eb       Bb              chord

Bb                         
We're alive, we can breathe
          Bbsus2               F7    
But do we really care for this world in need?
       Bb                     Bbsus2    
There's a choice we must make each and 
      F7
every day 
Bb         F        Eb        Bb     
So close your eyes and share the dream
    F          Eb         Bb     
Let everyone on earth believe
    Bb        F         Eb          Bb  
The Child was born, the stars shone bright
    F         Eb       Eb       Bb    
And Love came down at Christmas time
    F         Eb       Eb       Bb     
And Love came down at Christmas time
