Hesus Was An Only Son  Misc. Gospel

[D]   [G]  [D]  [A]  [D]                            
[D]Well Jesus was an only [G]son     [D]
As he walked up Calvary [G]Hill
[D]His mother Mary walking besid[G]e him       [D]
In the path where his bl[A]ood spilled     [D]

Jesus was an only son
In the hills of Nazareth
As he lay reading the Psalms of David
Held at his mother's feet

His mother prayed sleep tight, my child, sleep well
For I'll be at your side
Let no shadow, no darkness, no tolling bell
Shall pierce your dreams this night

In the garden at Gethsemane
He prayed for the life he'd never live
He beseeched his heavenly Father
To remove the cup of death from his lips

Now there's a loss that can never be replaced
A destination that can never be reached
A light you'll never find in a mother's face
The sea whose distance cannot be breached

[D]   [G]  [D]  [A]  [D]                            
Well, Jesus kissed his mother's hands
And whispered, mother please still your tears
For remember the soul of the universe
Willed a world and it appeared.
