                                                (A time for) 
              Em                    F
1. A time for us, some-day there'll be  
                    Em      C        Dm
   When chains are torn by cour-age born 
                     Am
   Of a love that's free
                 Em                F
   A time when dreams, so long de-nied
        Dm     Em 
   Can flour - ish 
      Am                         Em    Am
   As we un-veil the love we now must hide

           C       G      Dm     Am
Chorus: A time for us at last to see
           Bb          F       Em      Am
        A life worth-while for you and me

                 Em                       F
2. And with our love, through tears and thorns
               Em     C
   We will en-dure as we pass 
    Dm                     Am
   Sure-ly through ev'-ry storm
              Em                    F
   A time for us, some-day there'll be
      Dm    Em 
   A  new  world 
      Am                        Em      Am
   A world of shin-ing hope for you and me

           C       G      Dm     Am
Chorus: A time for us at last to see
           Bb          F       Em      Am
        A life worth-while for you and me

                 Em                       F
3. And with our love, through tears and thorns
               Em     C
   We will en-dure as we pass 
    Dm                     Am
   Sure-ly through ev'-ry storm
              Em                    F
   A time for us, some-day there'll be
      Dm    Em 
   A  new  world 
      Am                        Em      Am
   A world of shin-ing hope for you and me

   |  Em  |  Am  |
