The Little Boy from the Carpenter Shop  Misc. Gospel

He was [Eb]born in a stable, His [Cm]mother a virgin;
[Ab]raised in a carpenter [Eb]shop.
His [Eb]people were slaves, His [Cm]parents were poor;
His [Ab]friends were a lowly [Bb7]lot.
His [Ab]chances in life, [Bb7]seemed so slim; why,
He's [Ab]expected to be a [Bb7]slave.

But the [Eb]people in darkness [Ab]saw light in Him;
as [Eb]hope for [Bb7]freedom He [Eb]gave.
[Eb]All of the power of [Cm]heaven and earth;[Ab]
God has invested in[Eb]Him.
[Eb]He's to die on the cross, [Cm]descend into hell;
meet the [Ab]devil, take the keys from [Bb7]him.

He [Ab]yielded His life to the [Bb7]death on the cross;
cried it's [Ab]finished and then He [Bb7]died.
In the [Eb]regions of hell, the [Ab]devil celebrated;
we've [Eb]destroyed the [Bb7]King, he [Eb]cried.
In the [Eb]midst of the celebration, [Cm]footsteps were heard;
walk-[Ab]ing the corridors of [Eb]hell.
Then the [Eb]shouting stopped, as a [Cm]voice rang out;
a [Ab]voice as clear as a [Bb7]bell.
[Ab]Satan then trembled as he [Bb7]recognized Him;
who [Ab]came to deliver His [Bb7]own.
Oh, [Eb]shut and lock the [Ab]gates he cried;
don't [Eb]let Him [Bb7]ascend to His [Eb]Throne.
Then the [Eb]gates swung shut in the [Cm]face of our LORD;
to [Ab]prove salvation [Eb]untrue.
But, He [Eb]shook hell's gates, cried [Cm]lift up your heads;
the [Ab]King is coming [Bb7]through.
Then [Ab]out of the devil's [Bb7]prison house
came a proc-[Ab]ession led by our [Bb7]King.
Crying [Eb]out oh grave, where [Ab]is thy victory;
and [Eb]death where [Bb7]is thy [Eb]sting?
[Eb]Who is the [Ab]King of Glory?
The LORD GOD ALMIGHTY; that is [Eb]He.
[Eb]Who is the [Ab]King of Glory?
He's the master of the host of heaven [Eb]supreme.
[Eb]Who is the [Ab]King of Glory?
He's the one that not even death could [Eb]stop!
[Eb]Who [Bb7]is the King of Glory?
The Little Boy from the Carpenter [Eb]Shop[~Ab~Eb]
[Eb]The Little [Bb7]Boy from the Carpenter [Ab]Shop![~~Eb]
