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
