Death in His Grave (orginal key of D)
Capo 2

Verse: C G Am F
Chorus: C G F C
part2 of chorus: Am G F C

C                      G
Though the Earth Cried out for blood
Am                   F
Satisfied her hunger was
    C                 G
Her billows calmed on raging seas
        Am               F
for the souls on men she craved

C                 G
Sun and moon from balcony
Am                   F
Turned their head in disbelief
      C                             G
Their precious Love would taste the sting
   Am          F
disfigured and disdained


   C        G
On Friday a thief
   F        C
On Sunday a King
C            G
Laid down in grief
    F          C
But awoke with keys
   Am           G
Of Hell on that day
          F           C
The first born of the slain
    Am        G
The Man Jesus Christ
     F            C         Turn-Around (play verse chords) C G Am F
Laid death in his grave

C                         G
So three days in darkness slept
    Am             F
The Morning Sun of righteousness
    C                 G
But rose to shame the throes of death
    Am            F
And over turn his rule

    C                 G
Now daughters and the sons of men
      Am            F
Would pay not their dues again
    C                  G
The debt of blood they owed was rent
         Am           F
When the day rolled a new


He has cheated
Hell and seated
G            F
Us above the fall
In desperate places
He paid our wages
G                     F
One time once and for all
