Verse 1: D Em D/F# G A Joy has dawned upon the world, Bm Em7 D/A A Promised from creation: D Em D/F# G A God's salvation now unfurled, Bm G A D Hope for every nation. D/F# G D/F# Em7 A Not with fanfares from above, Bm Em7 D/A A Not with scenes of glory, D Em D/F# G A But a humble gift of love: Bm7 Em7 A D Jesus born of Mary. Verse 2: Sounds of wonder fill the sky With the songs of angels, As the mighty Prince of Life Shelters in a stable. Hands that set each star in place, Shaped the earth in darkness, Cling now to a mother's breast, Vulnerable and helpless. Verse 3: Shepherds bow before the Lamb, Gazing at the glory; Gifts of men from distant lands Prophesy the story. Gold, a King is born today, Incense, God is with us, Myrrh, His death will make a way, And by His blood He'll win us. Verse 4: Son of Adam, Son of heaven, Given as a ransom, Reconciling God and man, Christ our mighty Champion! What a Saviour, what a Friend, What a glorious mystery: Once a babe in Bethlehem, Now the Lord of history.
