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.
