Original Key: Em


Verse 1:
Em        B7    Em
One shall tell another, 
    Am
And he shall tell his friend, 
B7
Husbands, wives and children 
         Em          B7
Shall come following on. 
     Em       B7       Em
From house to house in families 
      Am
Shall more be gathered in, 
    B7
And lights will shine in every street, 
   C             B7
So warm and welcoming.
Chorus:
Em        Am             Em
Come on in and taste the new wine, 
C       D           Em
    The wine of the kingdom, 
C       D           Em            B7
    The wine of the kingdom of God. 
Em         Am          Em
Here is healing and forgiveness, 
C       D           Em
    The wine of the kingdom, 
C       D           Em             B7   Em
    The wine of the kingdom of God. 
Verse 2:
Compassion of the Father 
Is ready now to flow, 
Through acts of love and mercy 
We must let it show. 
He turns now from His anger 
To show a smiling face,
And longs that men should stand beneath 
The fountain of His grace.
Verse 3:
He longs to do much more than 
Our faith has yet allowed, 
To thrill us and surprise us 
With His sovereign power. 
Where darkness has been darkest 
The brightest light will shine, 
His invitation comes to us, 
It's yours and it is mine.

ONE SHALL TELL ANOTHER,
And he shall tell his friend,
Husbands, wives and children
Shall come following on.
From house to house in families
Shall more be gathered in,
And lights will shine in every street,
So warm and welcoming.

Come on in and taste the new wine,
The wine of the kingdom,
The wine of the kingdom of God.
Here is healing and forgiveness,
The wine of the kingdom,
The wine of the kingdom of God.

Compassion of the Father
Is ready now to flow,
Through acts of love and mercy
We must let it show.
He turns now from His anger
To show a smiling face,
And longs that men should stand beneath
The fountain of His grace.

He longs to do much more than
Our faith has yet allowed,
To thrill us and surprise us
With His sovereign power.
Where darkness has been darkest
The brightest light will shine,
His invitation comes to us,
It's yours and it is mine.
