In The Beginning Was The Word

(based on John 1:1-14)

By Elton Smith and Larry Holder

CCLI Number: 2773911

We've had a short break due to the prison concerts and my work to make the new album, but we're back now with new music. John provides such an inspiring backdrop for a song with his majestic and lofty language. - Elton August 8, 1999

(Introduction)

(Verse 1)
In the beginning was the Word
And the Word was with God.
In the beginning was the Word
Now He dwells within my heart.

(Chorus 1)
And the Word came down as flesh.
Taking form in lowly birth.
He's the very Son of God
Who created heaven and earth.

(Verse 2)
In the beginning was the Word
And the Word Himself was God.
In the beginning was the Word
Now He dwells within my heart.

(Chorus 2 - hold "And" for two beats)
And in the Word is Life
Which became the Light of men
That the world can't overcome;
In His life, we live again!

(Bridge)
To all who will receive the Word,
To those believing in His Name,
He empowers to be sons of God...

(Repeat chorus 1)
And the Word came down as flesh.
Taking form in lowly birth.
He's the very Son of God
Who created heaven and earth.

(Repeat chorus 2)
And in the Word is Life
Which became the Light of men
That the world can't overcome;
In His life, we live again!

(Repeat chorus 1 and 2 again)

(Ending)
In the beginning was the Word,
Now He dwells within my heart.
