Could this be the song your looking for?   God Bless


The Beggar and King

What you see before you, I've not always been
I once was so broken and battered by sin
the story that I tell you is such a marvelous thing
how love brought together a beggar and king

I traded for riches the rags of my soul
I gave him the pieces and he made me whole
I brought to him nothing and he gave me everything
oh he found the beggar I found the king

You say its just so hard for you to believe
all that I can tell you is that I agree
of all the love stories this worlds ever seen
there will never be another greater
than how Jesus loved me

I traded for riches the rags of my soul
I gave him the pieces and he made me whole
I brought to him nothing and he gave me everything
oh he found the beggar I found the king
yes I am the beggar and he is the king

A King and a Beggar

A King met a beggar on a lonely road one day
A strange occurance took place as you will see
The beggar fell upon his knees and cried "Oh pardon me
I am unworthy in Thy presence to be"

Chorus:
  "Then the king looked at the beggar,
And He said, You've been set free,
Your sins are all forgiven, now You're born in royalty.
Then the King and the beggar walked on arm in arm, you see,
That King was Jesus, and the beggar was me."

He who was rich became so poor that a beggar rich might be
The Son of God became the son of man
That we poor fallen sons of man the sons of God might be
I can't explain it, God's wonderous saving plan
Chorus

I've had someone request that this be played at a celebration service for her mother who just went home to the Lord.  I would love to honor her wish, but need guitar chords.  Can anyone help?

Thank you.
