THE NAZARENE 

    C                                           C/B
The Nazarene had come to live the life of every man
       Am           Em            F
And he felt the facination of the stars
                                G
And as He wandered through this weary world
   C           C/B Am   
He wondered and He wept   
          F                  G             F  C  C/B 
For there were so few who's listen to His call

Chorus:
Am          Em7          F       C C/B          
He came, He saw, He surrendered all
Am         Em7            F2
So that we might be born again
        F             G           C        C/B    Am
And the fact of His humanity was there for all to see
           F          G              F     G         C
For He was unlike any other man and yet so much like me

    C                                   
The Nazarene could hunger and the Nazarene could cry
    C/B      Am                  Em              F
And He could laugh with all the fullness of His heart
                      G             C         C/B     Am
And those who hardly knew Him, and those who knew Him well
       F              G                F     C  C/B
Could feel the contradiction from the start

Chorus 2x
