      C         G
While shepherds watched
      F         C
Their flocks by night
    C      D      G
All seated on the ground
    F            G         E
The angel of the Lord came down
    G     F       C
And glory shone around

"Fear not," he said,
For mighty dread
Had seized their troubled minds
"Glad tidings of great joy I bring
To you and all mankind."

"To you in David's
Town this day
Is born of David's line
The Savior who is Christ the Lord
And this shall be the sign."

"The heavenly Babe
You there shall find
To human view displayed
And meanly wrapped
In swathing bands
And in a manger laid."

Thus spake the seraph,
And forthwith
Appeared a shining throng
Of angels praising God, who thus
Addressed their joyful song

"All glory be to
God on high
And to the earth be peace;
Goodwill henceforth
From heaven to men
Begin and never cease!"

  C              F 
O little town of Bethlehem, 
    C        G        C
How still we see thee lie; 
 C                 F 
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep 
    C      G        C 
The silent stars go by. 
    C                    E 
Yet in the dark streets shineth 
    Am          E 
The everlasting light; 
    C                  F 
The hopes and fears of all the years 
    C      G      C 
Are met in thee tonight. 

For Christ is born of Mary; 
And gathered all above, 
While mortals sleep the angels keep 
Their watch of wond'ring love. 
O morning stars together 
Proclaim the holy birth; 
And praises sing to God the King, 
And peace to men on earth.

How silent, how silently 
The wondrous gift is giv'n! 
So God imparts to human hearts 
The blessings of His heav'n. 
No ear may hear His coming, 
But in this world of sin, 
Where meek souls will receive Him still, 
The dear Christ enters in.

O holy Child of Bethlehem, 
Descend to us, we pray; 
Cast out our sin and enter in, 
Be born in us today. 
We hear the Christmas angels 
The great glad tidings tell; 
O come to us, abide with us, 
Our Lord, Emmanuel.

D                A         D
Angels, from the realms of glory,

Shepherds, in the fields abiding,
Watching o'er your flocks by night,
God with man is now residing
Yonder shines the infant light.

Sages, leave your contemplations,
Brighter visions beam afar;
Seek the great Desire of nations,
Ye have seen his natal star.

All creation, join in praising
God, the Father, Spirit, Son,
Evermore your voices raising
To the eternal Three in One.

G             Em
Once in royal David's city,
G       Em    D       G
stood a lowly cattle  shed,
G              Em
where a mother laid her baby
G    Em     D       G
in a manger for His bed.
C    G        D      G
Mary was that mother mild,
C     G          D      G
Jesus Christ her little child

He came down to earth from heaven
Who is God and Lord of all
And His shelter was a stable
And His cradle was a stall
With the poor and mean and lowly
Lived on earth our Savior holy

And our eyes at last shall see Him
Through His own redeeming love
For that Child so dear and gentle
Is our Lord in heaven above
And He leads His children on
To the place where He is gone

"Glory to God, all glory in the highest!" 


Yea, Lord we greet Thee, 
Born that happy morning; 
Jesus, to Theee be all glory giv'n. 
Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing:

 G C 
Long time ago in Bethlehem, 
D G 
so the Holy Bible say, 
G C 
Mary's boy child Jesus Christ, 
G D G 
was born on Christmas Day. 
G C D G 
Hark, now hear the angels sing, 
Em C D 
a new king born today, and 
G D C 
man will live for evermore, 
G D G 
because of Christmas day. 

G C D G 
Trumpets sound and angels sing, 
Em C D 
listen to what they say, that 
G D C 
man will live for evermore, 
G D G 
because of Christmas Day. 
While shepherds watch their flocks by night, 
them see a bright shining star, 
them hear a choir sing that night, 
the music come from afar. 

Now Joseph and his wife, Mary, 
come to Bethlehem that night, 
them find no place to born the child, 
not a single room was in sight. 

By and by they find a nook, 
in a stable all forlorn, 
and in a manger cold and dark, 
the little baby was born. 

Long time ago in Bethlehem, 
so the Holy Bible say,
Mary's boy child, Jesus Christ, 
was born on Christmas Day.

Silent night, holy night
E            A 
All is calm, All is bright 
D                 A 
Round yon Virgin, Mother and Child 
D              A 
Holy Infant so Tender and mild, 
E                 A 
Sleep in heavenly peace, 
A        E        A 
Sleep in heavenly peace. 

Silent night, holy night 
Shepherds quake at the sight, 
Glories stream from heaven afar, 
Heavenly hosts sing Alleleulia 
Christ the Saviour is born! 
Christ the saviour is born. 

Silent night, holy night 
Son of God, love's pure light 
Radiant beams from Thy holy face 
with the dawn of redeeming grace, 
Jesus Lord at thy birth, 
Jesus Lord at thy birth.
