    F                         C
The people that walked in the darkness have seen a great light
          F                        C         Am
They that dwell in the land of the shadow of death
  D7                            G7
Upon them hath the light shined bright
    C    E    F              G7               C
For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given
                   E         F
And His name shall be called Wonderful
C                  G7              C
Prince of Peace to show the way to Heaven

Oh praise the Lord, praise the Lord, praise the Lord


And He said to come unto me now
Your burden will be easier with me
Blessed are the meek and pure in heart
And those in mourning, I’ll set the souls of prisoners free
Yes, it came to pass that the light did shine
And never did a man speak like this man
And His name is called Wonderful
He’ll give you life if you’ll believe He can

Chorus
