C             G
Long ago He blessed the earth
     F              Bb
Born older than the years
    F                 C
And in the stall the cross He saw
             F             G
Through the first of many tears
C                   G
A life of homeless wandering
     F               Bb
Cast out in sorrow's way
     F                C
The Shepherd seeking for the lost
     F                 G
His life the price He paid

       C         G
Love crucified arose
     F               C
The risen One in splendor
   F              C
Jehovah's sole Defender
    F            G
Has won the victory
       C         G
Love crucified arose
         F               C
And the grave became a place of hope
          F                 C
For the heart that sin and sorrow broke
    F       G     C
Is beating once again

VERSE 2 (the same chord progression as VERSE 1)

Throughout Your life You've felt the weight
Of what You'd come to give
To drink for us that crimson cup
So we might really live
At last the time love and die
The dark appointed day
That one forsaken moment when
Your Father turned His face away

Repeat Chorus several times

I hope I got the chords right. It sounds okay to me, but to make it sound
Michael Card's version you'll have to work a little on the chords. If you
corrections, feel free to mail me.
