HOW CAN YOU REFUSE HIM NOW
Key of E            W


CHORUS:
(E7) How can (A) you refuse Him now, 
how can (E) you refuse Him now,
How can you turn away from His (B7) side,
With (E) tears in His eyes, 
on the (A) cross there He (E) died,
How  can  you  re-(B7)fuse jesus (E) now.


(E) There's a story old, 
that has (A) often been (E) told,
of how our Savior (B7) died, 
as they (E) nailed His hands,
He  cried  they  (A) don't  under-(E)stand,
as the blood flowed (B7) from His (E) side. (E7)

  REPEAT CHORUS

As He hung there on the tree, He prayed for you and me,
There was no one His pain to ease,
Be-fore  He  died,  He  faintly  cried,
Father  for-give  them  please.
