72. First Days

by Mark Ungar

E       A E         A
Just as surely as the tree putteth forth its leaf
E         A           B7
The days of all mankind were ones of grief.
E         A
In the East and in the West
E         A
People tried to do their best,
E A                  B7
The search for Life became an endless quest.
A E/G# F#min B7 E
But now the search is at an end
A E/G# F#min B7 E

A   E/G# F#min B7 E
God has sent His Son again.

  And I'd lie awake at night
And knew that things weren't right
Only that someday I'd find the light.
La la la...

Something happened I expected least.
My heart was given peace
I fell upon my knees
I'd been invited to the wedding feast.
La la la...
Now as surely as the vine up the rock begins to climb
The Truth that God has sent will claim the earth.
And with His Son we'll bind, Heaven never will decline
And the cosmos will forever ring with mirth.
And these are the first days
The evil world will pass away
Let him hear the Truth who may
