Lyrics and Chords

His gift was love From the album, ‘Stir into Flame’

During a bleak and desperate night, when the darkness of depression threatened, I cried out for help, and was given strength in

the chorus of this song; the first I’d ever written. Avril

Intro: 2G . . .

2G C D

He only wanted peace, oo-oo-oo-oo

G Em

He only wanted peace, oo-oo-oo-oo

Am D

He only wanted peace. oo-oo-oo-oo

G

But they fought Him all the way

Chorus:

C D

His gift was love, oo-oo-oo-oo

G Em

His gift was love, oo-oo-oo-oo

Am D

His gift was love, oo-oo-oo-oo

G

and He gave it all away.

He only wanted truth, oo-oo-oo-

He only wanted truth, oo-oo-oo-

He only wanted truth, oo-oo-oo-

But they scoffed Him all the way. Chorus

He bought us innocence, oo-oo-oo-

He bought us innocence, oo-oo-oo-

He bought us innocence, oo-oo-oo-

But they nailed it to the tree. Chorus

Final chorus:

His gift is still love, oo-oo-oo-

His gift is still love, oo-oo-oo-

His gift is still love, and He’s giving it away.

Take it now and make it yours. ©1985 Avril Pease
