Chords: That Little Horn Again

Text: Daniel 8  --  Track 24

 

A             Em D         A     Em D

In the third year of the reign of King Beshazzar

A             Em D         A     Em D

Daniel saw a crazy vision one day

A             Em D         A     Em D

He was standing in Suza by the Ulai Canal

A             Em D         A     Em D

There was a two-horned ram in the way

-------

         B            

It went west, he went north, he went south in his pride

    Em                 C  D

It was oh, so narcissistic in heart

A             Em D         A     Em D

Then a goat came from the west with a horn between his eyes

A             Em D         A     Em D

And shattered the ram’s horns all apart

-------

A             Em D         A     Em D

Now, walking on the ram the goat puffed himself up

A             Em D         A     Em D

But his horn broke to make way for four

A             Em D         A     Em D

Then out of one horn—there he was—that little one

A             Em D         A     Em D

He tried to knock, knock, knock down heaven’s door

-------

    B    

He climbed up to heaven, swept some stars to the ground

    Em                         C   D

He huffed and puffed and proudly said “I will”

A             Em D         A     Em D

He took away the daily, threw the sanctuary down

A             Em D         A     Em D

Then trampled on the truth, yet prospered still

-------

              B

That little horn again

        Em

That little horn again

-------

A             Em D         A     Em D

Now Gabriel the angel called the prophet “son of man”

A             Em D         A     Em D

But he passed out before his heavenly friend

A             Em D         A     Em D

Angel woke him up and told him, “I will help you understand

A             Em D         A     Em D

“For the vision pertains to the time of the end”

-------

A             Em D         A     Em D

He said, “The Ram is Medo-Persia, the two horns the kings

A             Em D         A     Em D

“And the goat’s four horns are kings too

A             Em D         A     Em D

“At the end of their rule there will be another king

A             Em D         A     Em D

“A manipulative destroyer through and through

-------

        B

That little horn again

        Em

That little horn again

-------

A             Em D         A     Em D

“Now all the other kings lifted up themselves

A             Em D         A     Em D

“But this one climbed up higher than them all

A             Em D         A     Em D

“And he fights Prince of princes with the arsenal of hell

A             Em D         A     Em D

“Until heaven’s forces push him off the wall

-------

A             Em D         A     Em D

The angel finished speaking, Daniel oh, so confused

A             Em D         A     Em D

He longed to see God’s people free at last

A             Em D         A     Em D

Now his hopes were interrupted by this little horn dude

A             Em D         A     Em D

He carried on, but kept thinkin’ ‘bout that bombast

-------

        B

That little horn again

        Em

That little horn again
