Chords: A Thousand Years (The Millennium)

Text: Revelation 20:1- 10  --  Disc 2 Track 9  --  91 bpm (¾ time)

 

C                  F C

A thousand years to ponder

   C                  F

A thousand years to see

    G          Em              Dm Am

All the things that led to the darkest death

               F Gsus G

Or to brightest jubilee

-------

         C               F   C

Each soul will see God’s justice

      C                      F

His tender mercy, too

       G          Em        Dm      Am

And the countless tokens of His love

                F                 C

That poured down like morning dew

-------

       C                 F        C

Our enemy then bound by

  C         F

A holy angel’s chain

           G           Em          Dm              Am

While the martyrs and the end time saints

                   F     Gsus G

With their God will judge and reign

-------

        C             F     C

Oh! How the proud are humbled

        C            F

And how the weak are strong

    G       Em               Dm     Am

Poor become as priests, lowly rule the world

                      C

Right will triumph over wrong

-------

F        C    F        Am            F        G

A thousand years, a thousand years, and God will dry all tears

 G            C G

I want to be with Jesus

           C

I want to cry the tears

         D            Bm        Am          Em

That flow down for that which might have been

          C         D

For those one thousand years

     G               C         G

For when my Jesus dries them

            C

His hand will touch my eye

    D    Bm        Am     Em

And I’ll see up close those forever scars

      C        G       C

That do show His sacrifice

-------

A thousand years, a thousand years, and God will dry all tears
