INTRO
    D

VERSE 1
    D                      A              Bm7           G
    Though the Earth cried out for blood, satisfied her hunger was
    D                  A                   Bm7              G
    Billows calmed on raging seas, for the souls of men she craved
    D                  A      Bm7                  G
    Sun and moon from balcony turned their head in disbelief
    D                    A                  Bm7            G
    Precious Love would taste the sting, disfigured and disdained

CHORUS
       D         A        G        D
    On Friday a thief, on Sunday a King
                 A          G             D
    Laid down in grief, but woke with the keys
       Bm7          A              G           D
    Of hell on that day, the first born of the slain
        Bm7       A           G            D
    The Man Jesus Christ laid death in his grave

VERSE 2
    D                A                  Bm7            G
    So three days in darkness slept the Morning Son of righteousness
        D                 A                   Bm7          G
    But rose to shame the throws of death and overturn his rule
        D                 A                 Bm7           G
    Now daughters and the sons of men would pay not their dues again
        D                  A                      Bm7          G
    The debt of blood they owed was rent when the day rolled a new
