Chords: The Statue

Text: Daniel 2:26-49  --  Track 9

 

Am

Daniel came before the king

E            Am

And as he spoke that day

G                    Am

The king’s lost memory began to play

Am

He’d seen a statue in the night

E            Am

A towering column

G                Am

A prophecy of monarchies to come

-------

            G

(He saw a) Head of gold

Am

Chest and arms of silver

E

Belly and thighs of brass in the

    Am

dream appeared

G

Legs of iron

Am

Feet of clay and iron

E

It was scary, it was shocking

E

It was frightening, knees were knocking

E

The effect was to disquiet

E

Because no one could deny it

    Am    G    Am

It was weird


-------

Am

Daniel then interpreted

E            Am

“You are the head of gold”

G                    Am

This is what the king had oft been told  

Am

But Daniel bravely ventured on

E            Am

“Another king will come”

G                Am

Touching on the silver chest and arms

-------

            G

(He saw a) Head of gold

Am

Chest and arms of silver

E

Belly and thighs of brass in the

    Am

dream appeared

G

Legs of iron

Am

Feet of clay and iron

E

It was scary, it was shocking

E

It was frightening, knees were knocking

E

The effect was to disquiet

E

Because no one could deny it

    Am    G    Am

It was weird

-------

Am

“And then another” Daniel said

E            Am

Referring to the thighs

G                Am

And some would think his honesty not wise

Am

But Daniel said unflinchingly

E            Am

“The iron legs come next

G                Am

To trample out the power of the rest”

Am

Daniel’s narrative went on

E            Am

“The feet of iron and clay

G                Am

“Never have they merged, still to this day”

Am

And finally, the kingdoms’ end

E            Am

A stone, randomly hurled

G                Am

That crushed them all and grew to fill the world
