"God's Own Fool"
Michael Card
From the album "Scandalon"
---------------------------

     C                      G         C
It seems I've imagined Him all of my life
         F        C          G
As the wisest of all of mankind
        F           C         G         Am G-F
But if God's holy wisdom is foolish to man
                    Gsus-G      C
He must have seemed out of His mind
     F         C     G          C
For even His family said He was mad
          F              C         Gsus-G
And the priest said, "A demon's to blame,"
    F           C           G           Am  G-F
So God in the form of this angry young man
                      Gsus-G     C   --->(run to F)
Could not have seemed perfectly sane

Chorus:
     F           C           G              C
When we in our foolishness thought we were wise
Am                         F       
He played the fool and He opened our eyes
C                F         G              Am
When we in our weakness believed we were strong
             F         G            C   --->(run to F)
He became helpless to show we were wrong
    F       C     G         C
And so we follow God's own fool
      F        C         Gsus-G
For only the foolish can tell
   F         C - G - Am  G-F
Believe the unbelievable
              Gsus-G    C
And come be a fool as well

Verse 2:
So come lose your life for a carpenter's Son
For a madman who died for a dream
Then you'll have the faith His first followers had
And you'll feel the weight of the beam
So surrender the hunger to say you must know
And the courage to say I believe
Let the power of paradox open your eyes
And blind those who say they can see

Repeat Chorus (run to F)

End:
    F       C     G         C
And so we follow God's own fool
      F        C         Gsus-G
For only the foolish can tell
   F         C - G - Am  G-F
Believe the unbelievable
              Gsus-G    C
And come be a fool as well
