G Bm C G He can turn the tides and calm the angry sea; Am Em Am B7 He alone decides who writes a symphony. C Cm G Bm Em He lights ev'ry star that makes the darkness bright, D7 Bm Am D7 He keeps watch all through each long and lonely night. G Em Am7 D7 He still finds the time to hear a child's first prayer; Am7 D7 G9 G Saint or sinner calls and always finds him there. Gdim Cm G G/F# Bm Though it makes him sad to see the way we live, Am D7 G He'll always say "I forgive." G Bm C G He can grant a wish or make a dream come true; Am Em Am B7 He can paint the clouds and turn the gray to blue. C Cm G Bm Em He alone knows where to find the rain - bow's end, D7 Bm Am D7 He alone can see what lies beyond the end. G Em Am7 D7 He can touch a tree and turn the leaves to gold; Am7 D7 G9 G He knows every lie that you and I have told. Gdim Cm G G/F# Em Though it makes him sad to see the way we live, Am 7 D7 G G/F# He'll always say "I forgive, C Cdim G "I for - give."
