                         Michael Card

chords: Marek Vit (marek@geocities.com)
(from the 'Brother to Brother' CD that Michael did w/ J.M.Talbot
- it may differ slightly from the original M. Card's version)

Am          G      Am
Why did it have to be a friend
      Dm        G        Am
Who chose to betray the Lord
Am         G      Am
Why did he use a kiss to show
        Dm         G       Am
That's not what a kiss is for
 C                    G
Only a friend can betray a friend
    Am                      E
A stranger has nothing to gain
    Am      G           Am
And only a friend comes close enough
   Dm         G        Am
To ever cause so much pain

    Dm             C      Dm
And why did there have to be thorny
Gm              C       Dm
Crown pressed upon His head
   Dm           C        Dm
It should have been the royal one
         Gm         C      Dm
Made of jewels and gold instead
C               G
It had to be a crown of thorns
   Am                         E
Because in this life that we live
Am             G       Am
All who would seek to love
            Dm            G         Am
A thorn is all that this world can give

(use the same chords as in the first verse)
And why did it have to be
A heavy cross He was made to bare
And why did they nail His feet and hands
His love would have held Him there
It was a cross for upon a cross
A thief was supposed to pay
And Jesus had come into the world
To steal every heart away
Yes, Jesus had come into the world
To steal every heart away

This is how I play it. If you have any corrections, please send them to
