Verse One:
         Am7                    Fmaj7
I cannot tell why He whom angels worship
               C/E                   G6
Should set His love upon the sons of men
           Am7                         Fmaj7
Or why, as shepherd, He should seek the wanderers
               G                          F
To bring them back, they know not how or when
            C/E       Fmaj7         Am7   G 
But this I know, that He was born of Mary
           C/E          F          GsusF   G
When Bethlehem’s manger was His only home
             C         F          Am7  F
And that He lived at Nazareth and labored
           C/E      F     G               C/E   F  G
And so the Savior, Savior of the world is come

Verse two:
I cannot tell how silently He suffered
As with His peace He graced this place of tears
Or how His heart upon the cross was broken
The crown of pain to three and thirty years
But this I know, He heals the brokenhearted
And stays our sin, and calms our lurking fear
And lifts the burden from the heavy laden
For yet the Savior, Savior of the world is here

Verse three:
I cannot tell how He will win the nations
How He will claim His earthly heritage
How satisfy the needs and aspirations
Of East and West, of sinner and of sage
But this I know, all flesh shall see His glory
And He shall reap the harvest He has sown
And some glad day His sun shall shine in splendor
When He the Savior, Savior of the world is known

Verse four:
I cannot tell how all the lands shall worship
When, at His bidding, every storm is stilled
Or who can say how great the jubilation
When all the hearts of men with love are filled
But this I know, the skies will thrill with rapture
And myriad, myriad human voices sing
And earth to Heaven, and Heaven to earth will answer
"At last the Savior, Savior of the world is king!"
