Am     C

[Verse 1]
Am                   F
Come in sir for you are weary
C                         C
And the night is cold out there
C                         C                             
Though our lives are very humble
Dm      Ab      C#m     F
What we have we have to share
C        Am           G       Em
There is wine here to revive you
Am           C
There is bread to make you strong
C                            C                     Em
There’s a bed to rest till morning
Dm               C#m          C                   C#m
Rest from pain and rest from wrong

[Verse 2]
C#m                     C#m
Let me eat my fill
C#m                     C#m
I have my lying share
C#m                     C#m
The silver in his hand 
C#m                C#m
cost twice what I had earned
F#m                  F#m                         
In all those nineteen years
F#m                  F#m
that lifetime of despair
Ab                                      Dm
And yet he trusted me
Dm                     Dm
The old fool trusted me
He’d done his bit of good
F                                                      Dm    
I played the grateful serf, and thanked him like I should
Eb                     G
But when the house was still
I got up in the night
F#m           Am
Took the silver
        Dm             C                F              C#m     G
Took my flight!

C                   G
C         B 

[Verse 3]
Em                      C      
Tell his reverence your story
Let us see if he’s impressed
You were lodging there last night
You were the honest Bishop’s guest.
And then, out of Christian goodness
When he learned about your plight
C#m                                           C        B
You maintain he made a present of this silver -That is right.

[Verse 4]
C               G         G
But my friend you left so early
C                             C
Surely something slipped your mind
G                       G
You forgot I gave these also
F                        B
Would you leave the best behind?
B            Em
So Messieurs you may release him
For this man has spoken true
Em                     Em
I commend you for your duty
Em                 B       Em
May God’s blessing go with you.

[Verse 5]
Am                 C   F           Am
But remember this, my brother
Am                   C
See in this some higher plan
C                          C      Eb      G
You must use this precious silver
Dm           C#m    F
To become an honest man
Am     F              Dm
By the witness of the martyrs
Am            Am       C
By the Passion and the Blood
C                         Dm
God has raised you out of darkness
C#m                         Am          F#m        Am
I have bought your soul for God!
