A E Longing for a Savior A hopeless world would wait D A E B Sin demanded justice At a price we could not pay; A E But God displayed his mercy The greatest gift of love D A When we could not reach heaven E B Heaven came to us. Chorus: E A E He made a way in a manger B E A way through the Son A E Messiah the promised Fm B Before time had begun; A E For God so loved this world C#m F# Though he knew what love would cost F#m E A He made a way in a manger B A E To make a way to the cross. A E In Bethlehem a stable Became a throne of grace D A As God himself our Savior E B Drew near to take our place; A E His mother smiled in wonder As shepherds stood in awe D A The sacrifice of heaven E B Lay sleeping in the straw. Bridge: A E He is the life that died our death F#m E The precious Lord Jesus C#m D E Laid down his sweet head. Bridge 2: E A E Away in a manger, no crib for a bed B E The little Lord Jesus A B C#m B Laid down his sweet head E A E The stars in the sky looked down where He lay F#m E F#m A B A The little Lord Jesus, asleep on the hay.
