Verse 1:
            E                          B
There was a day the sky was turned to darkness
           F♯                         G♯m
And all creation groaned the greatest loss
              E                     B
The weight of all our sin upon His shoulders
            F♯                   C♯m9  C♯m
Our blessed Savior hung upon the cross

	       B        F♯     G♯m
	What a day, oh, what a day
	     E         B                G♯m    F♯
	When blood and mercy poured out saving grace
	          B         F♯        G♯m

There was a day, just as the dawn was breaking
              F♯                      G♯m
The earth was shaking, love was crucified
    F♯     E                       B
The angel called out, ‘Do not be afraid’
          F♯               C♯m
For He is risen, Jesus is alive
	Chorus 2:
	       B        F♯     G♯m
	What a day, oh, what a day
	E       B                 G♯m    F♯
	Oh what power, there’s an empty grave
	          B         F♯        G♯m           
	Hear the roar, our thundering praise
	E        B                  F♯     C♯m
	All the saints are singing, what a day

There'll come a day the heavens will be opened
             F♯                           G♯m
Just like He promised, Christ shall come again
          E                         B
We will behold the King in all His glory
             E                        B
And we’ll forever rule and reign with Him

	Hear the roar, our thundering praise

	E        B                  F♯     B
	All the saints are singing, what a day

There was a day the sky was turned to darkness

And all creation groaned the greatest loss

The weight of all our sin upon His shoulders

Our blessed Savior hung upon the cross

 

What a day

Oh what a day

When blood and mercy poured out saving grace

Hear the roar

Our thundering praise

All the saints are singing what a day

 

There was a day just as the dawn was breaking

The earth was shaking, Love was crucified

The angel called out do not be afraid

For He is risen Jesus is alive

 

What a day

What a day

Oh what power there’s an empty grave

Hear the roar

Our thundering praise

All the saints are singing what a day

 

There'll come a day the heavens will be opened

Just like He promised Christ shall come again

We will behold the King in all His glory

And we’ll forever rule and reign with Him

We’ll forever rule and reign with Him

 

What a day

Oh what a day

We will shout the Name above all names

Hear the roar

Our thundering praise

All the saints are singing what a day

All the saints are singing what a day
