lyrics

VERSE 1:
Am Em E
O who is like the Lord our God,
C D E
Who sits enthroned on high,
Am Em D Am
Who turns his gaze on all below,
C E C Am
On all the earth and heav’ns?

Am Em E
He lifts the wretched from the dirt,
C D E
The poor from heaps of ash,
Am Em D Am
To make them sit in princely thrones,
C E C Am
In royal company.

CHORUS
D Am
Are You the Christ who is to come?
D G Em Am
Or should we still tarry on?

VERSE 3:
O who is He whose lowly birth,
In ill repute and shame,
Assumed the Virgin’s empty womb,
As Joseph’s common son?

VERSE 4:
O who is He whose wretched life,
In poverty and want,
Received the shepherd’s filth and praise,
Within the feeding trough?

CHORUS

VERSE 5:

O who is He whose words refused,
The reach of Satan’s power;
Who healed the blind and raised the lame,
And banished hellish throngs?

VERSE 6:
O who is He who stopped the feast,
With prayers and broken bread?
“This fractured bread—
my ruptured flesh,
“This wine—my bleeding wounds.”

CHORUS
Are You the Christ who is to come?
Or should we still tarry on?
