14 The Flight To Egypt (Matthew 2. 14-15)

D C Bm G

Journey on your way, Son of God, on a long, dusty road,

D Em A

Leaving far behind the town of Bethlehem.

G/A D C Bm G

Off into the cold, lonely night, while the stars twinkle on,

D G D G

Don't come back for a while, don't come back for a while,

D

Take your flight

D C Bm G

Journey on your way, Son of God, though the night closes in,

D Em A

Loving arms will hold you, keep you safe from harm.

G/A D C Bm G

You'll find shelter soon, little one, in a far distant land.

D G D G

You'll be there for a while, you'll be there for a while,

D

Sleep tight.

D C Bm G

Journey on your way, Son of God, You'll be back one fine day.

D Em A

When the time is right, your parents will be told.

G/A D C Bm G

In the meantime, shine little one, though the darkness has come.

D G D G

This world needs such a smile, this world needs your bright light,

D

Journey on.
