First Verse:

D               A    Bm              A
Children in the dark searching all a-round

D              A     Bm              A
Hidden in your spot, suddenly you're found

A         B7              D
This is a game we used to play

A             B7            D
But there are higher stakes these days

Chorus:

       D            F#m
Like a thief in the night

       D               F#m
In the place where you hide

        Bm          D            F#m
He will come like a thief in the night

       D            F#m
Like a thief in the night

        D            F#m
He will come for his bride

        Bm          D            F#m
He will come like a theif in the night


Second Verse:

"Where is Jesus now?" asked the man of learning
He will never show.  Logic won't allow him
These are the words that people say
What words will they use that day


Repeat Chorus


Bridge:

D
And when he's here he'll shout

A
Erasing every doubt

Bm
And then they'll all cry out

 A        A        A        D
"Save us, save us, save us"

Repeat Chorus

Fade out.....
