Lyrics

Saint Patrick

Intro
Bb Am C Am
Bb Am C F

Vs 1
Bb Am C Am
He was only a lad on that fateful cruel day
Dm Am C G
When in an act of sheer violence he was stolen away
Bb Am C Am
And taken by pirates on the cold misty sea
Bb Am C F
To serve a new master was his life’s destiny
-----------------------------------------------------------
Bb Am C Am
Enslaved in a land that was dripping in blood
Dm Am C G
Darkened by demons and devoid of God’s love
Bb Am C Am
Filled up with terror and wicked with vice

Bb Am C F
Where druids forced maidens to be sacrificed


Chorus

Bb Am
He was more than an Englishman
Bb Am C G
More than a captive or a slave on the run
Bb Am C Am
For the love of God’s Son chased the darkness away
Bb Am C F
And so we remember Saint Patrick this day




vs2
Bb Am C Am
For years tending swine on the emerald green hills
Dm Am C G
Desperate for hope in a god who was real
Bb Am C Am
He reached up for Him and found His love that day
Bb Am C F
When God’s Holy Son took all of his sins away
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Bb Am C Am
Struck by a vision his ship at the shore
Dm Am C G
He fled to the harbor his freedom in store
Bb Am C Am
And finally found passage on a ship heading home
Bb Am C F
And sailed to freedom through the white caps of foam


CHORUS
VS3

Bb Am C Am
Burning inside for God’s call would not fade
Dm Am C G
Return to the dying go run to their aide
Bb Am C Am
Rescue the perishing captives of sin
Give them the gospel and new life within
------------------------------------------------------------
Bb Am C Am
So with the love of his father above
Dm Am C G
He went back to Ireland sharing God’s love
Bb Am C Am
Chasing old Satan the serpent away
Bb Am C F
And so we remember Saint Patrick this day

CHORUS


BRIDGE

Dm C Am Bb
Like Jesus his savior who sacrificed
Am Bb C Dm
He left his home and gave up his life He was more……
