            [Verse 1]
  C                                 Am
I heard a voice that called me to attend a wedding feast,
    F                G                C
But only frowned and said I could not come.
                                    Am
I had no cloak to wear, no shoes to dance in on my feet,
  F                  G              C
I thought that I had better stay at home.

[Chorus]
             F                            Am
But, Oh, the music that I heard a-seeping through the Bridegroom's door;
    F                                 Am
The cymbal and the harp all join'd in praise.
             F                                          Am
The smell of new wine like on earth there's none, fresh venison and more;
    F                                  Am
But most of all I saw the Bridegroom's face.

[Verse 2]
  C                                  Am
Almost embarrassed, still I crept up to the Bridegroom's door,
    F                G             C
And ventured just to take a look inside.
                                 Am
But no one even glanced upon the garment that I wore,
      F                 G                C
Their eyes were fixed upon the groom and bride.

[Chorus]
             F                            Am
But, Oh, the music that I heard a-seeping through the Bridegroom's door;
    F                                 Am
The cymbal and the harp all join'd in praise.
             F                                          Am
The smell of new wine like on earth there's none, fresh venison and more;
    F                                  Am
But most of all I saw the Bridegroom's face.

[Verse 3]
   C                             Am
So many things they told me of a new and golden time,
   F              G                C
So beautiful that tears came to my eyes.
                                 Am
But I refused to listen; I could work some other time.
     F                   G             C
Then someone said, "Just try it on for size."

[Chorus 2]
             F                                Am
And, Oh, the music that you'll hear a-seeping through the Bridegroom's door;
    F                                 Am
The cymbal and the harp all join'd in praise.
             F                                          Am
The smell of new wine like on earth there's none, fresh venison and more;
    F                                  Am
But most of all I saw the Bridegroom's face.

[Verse 4]
    C                               Am
Now you must understand that all my life I had been blind,
     F               G                C
With all the world I struggled in the pit.
                                      Am
And now they brought a garment that restored man's flesh and mind;
  F                    G             C
I know they weren't mistaken when it fit.

[Chorus 3]
             F                            Am
And, Oh, the music that I heard a-seeping through the Bridegroom's door;
    F                                 Am
The cymbal and the harp all join'd in praise.
             F                                          Am
The smell of new wine like on earth there's none, fresh venison and more;
    F                                  Am
But most of all I saw the Bridegroom's face.

[Verse 5]
     C                               Am
This is no fable friend, the time of feasting is at hand;
    F             G                 C
And even now they play outside your door.
                                   Am
If you have eyes to see or ears to hear you'll let them in;
    F                   G             C
And you will share that feast forever more.


[Chorus 4]
             F                                Am
And when the tambourines are playing all will sing a brand new song;
    F                              Am
The plowshare evil's weapon will replace.
            F                                       Am
All clad in white, each man will raise his heel and crush the head of wrong;
    F                                       Am
But most of all, we'll see the Bridegroom's face!
