Verse 1:
C     C/E   F         G
Long ago, a mystery unfolded,
  C      C/E      F           G
A rescue plan for all of humankind:
Am     Em7        F             C/E
God Himself, born of the virgin Mary,
Dm         C/E        F6      F/G  C       G7sus4    G7
Lived this life, that life in Him we'd find.
Verse 2:
C         C/E   F               G
'Glory to God!' Hear the angels singing;
C        C/E   F                G
For this day a Saviour has been born.
Am     Em7     F                 C/E
Heaven opens! Shepherds watch in awe;
        Dm       C/E      F6   F/G    C
One day all will see the glory of the Lord.
Chorus:
     F  C/E
Hallelujah!
     F  C/E
Hallelujah!
    Dm7   C/E  Gsus4   G
All glory to  Your  name.
C/E     F           C/E          F   C/G  Am
God who walked with us, lived as one of   us;
    F       G         Am     C/G
For love, O Lord, You came,
1.
    F    C/E  Dm    F/G  C   F   C   F   C   F   C   F   F/G
For love, O  Lord,  You came.

Halleluj - ah!
    Dm7   C/E  Gsus4   G
All glory to  Your  name.
C/E     F           C/E          F   G   Am
God who walked with us, lived as one of  us;
     F      G         Am     C/G
For love, O Lord, You came,
    F    C/E  Dm    F/G  C
For love, O  Lord,  You came. 
Verse 3:
C        C/E     F           G
Come and see the baby in the manger,
    C       C/E    F           G
The King of kings, in a stable found.
Am       Em7     F          C/E
Lord of lords, humility You chose;
    Dm      C/E   F6        F/G       C
Now side by side, kings and shepherds bow.

Long ago, a mystery unfolded
A rescue plan for all of humankind
God Himself born of the virgin Mary
Lived this life, that life in Him we'd find

Glory to God! Hear the angels singing
For this day a Savior has been born
Heaven opens! Shepherds watch in awe
One day all will see the glory of the Lord

Hallelujah! Hallelujah! All glory to Your name
God who walked with us, lived as one of us
For love, O Lord, You came
For love, O Lord, You came


Come and see the baby in the manger
The King of kings in a stable found
Lord of lords, humility You chose
Now side by side, kings and shepherds bow
