[Verse 1]
B                                  
Follow the star to a place unexpected
B/G#                              
Would you believe after all we’ve projected
C#m7
A child in a manger
B                                
Lowly and small, the weakest of all
B/G#                                        
Unlikeliest hero, wrapped in his mother's
C#m7                                                              F#
shawl, just a child, is this who we’ve waited for?

[Chorus]
B
How many kings, stepped down from their thrones?
B/G#
How many lords have abandoned their homes?
C#m7                                                             F#
How many greats have become the least for me?
B
How many Gods have poured out their hearts
B/G#
To romance a world that has torn all apart?
C#m7                                                         F#
How many fathers gave up their sons for me?

[Verse 2]
B                                    
Bringing our gifts for the newborn savior
B/G#
All that we have whether costly or meek
C#m7
Because we believe
B                                              
Gold for his honor and frankincense for his
B/G#
pleasure and myrrh for the cross he’ll suffer
C#m7                                                          F#
Do you believe, is this who we’ve waited for?
                     backing vocal ---- (It’s who we’ve waited for)

[Chorus]
B
How many kings, stepped down from their thrones?
B/G#
How many lords have abandoned their homes?
C#m7                                                              F#
How many greats have become the least for me?
B
How many gods have poured out their hearts
B/G#
To romance a world that has torn all apart?
C#m7                                                         F#
How many fathers gave up their sons for me? - only One did that for
