G Em G Em G Am Come down to the manger, see the little stranger D D G Wrapped in swaddling. Lo! the Prince of Peace G Am Wheels start turning, torches start burning D G Behold wise men journey from the East CHORUS: Em Am D G How a little baby boy bring the people so much joy Am Am/B C Am Am/B C Son of a carpenter, Mary carried the light Am D G This must be Christmas, must be tonight A shepherd on a hillside, while over my flock I bide Oh a cold winter night a band of angels sing In a dream I heard a voice say "fear not, come rejoice" It's the end of the beginning, praise the newborn King CHORUS I saw it with my own eyes, written up in the sky But why a simple herdsmen such as I? And then it came to pass, he was born at last Right below the star that shines on high CHORUS
