Lyrics:

Listen close to this tale, my friend

Of a life that will never end

Freely given for you and me

Takes an open heart to see

He was born in the town of Bethlehem

Few men knew Christ even then

Still a legend He came

Soon we’ll see His final reign

 

Chorus:

A tender shoot of Jesse comes

And He shall be the chosen one

A robust boy from a Nazarene slum

A light to the gentiles, a mighty kingdom has come

He was no less than God, yet no more than man

So much like me, but from The Father’s hand

He feels my pain, yet never bowed by sin

And He shall come to end our suffering

Heaven and earth in one man did meet

The judgement throne became the mercy seat

The one who could cast the very first stone

Says I forgive you; go and sin no more

 

Bridge:

Listen, my friends it’s true

Jesus is coming back for you

Love, Peace, Joy will be made full when The Shoot of Jesse comes

Just can’t keep a good man down

Tender Shoot of Jesse come to your town

Bring the sick; bring the lame

Tender Shoot of Jess coming my way

Hey-ey, yeah, what a day

Tender Shoot of Jess coming my way
