Verse 1:
A                  B2/A    B/A
    Born where the shadows lie, 
E/A           A2    A   E/G♯  F♯m
    To answer every cry  of   man, 
               C♯m/E
This child who formed all life 
D                    Esus4    E
    Now breathes our breath.
A                  B2/A    B/A
    Born where the Father loved, 
E/A               A2   A E/G♯   F♯m
    Born helpless to a mother's arms, 
                 C♯m/E
She smoothed the tears upon 
D       Bm7     Esus4    E
    The face of God.
    Chorus:
    A                Dmaj7  D6    E
       Born now with man to dwell, 
                A       E/G♯
    Our Lord, Immanuel, 
         E/F♯    F♯m       A/B    Bm  D         Esus4  E
    Come see the King, the Christ child born to us.
    A                Dmaj7  D6  E
       Born now with man to dwell, 
        C♯sus4 C♯    E/F♯  F♯m  F♯m  E   D2
    Our Lord,       Immanuel, 
       Bm7      C♯m     F♯m Bm7     Esus4  E    A
    My soul can finally know    the God      of heaven.
Verse 2: 
Born with a road ahead,
Alone, these blameless feet would tread
The path God chose to walk,
Before all time.
Born holding life and death,
Born bearing heaven's wealth of peace
That fills where none can fill
Our living stream.
  

BORN WHERE THE SHADOWS LIE
To answer every cry of man,
This child who formed all life
Now breathes our breath.
Born where the Father loved,
Born helpless to a mother's arms,
She smoothed the tears upon
The face of God.

Born now with man to dwell,
Our Lord Immanuel,
Come see the King, the Christ Child born to us.
Born now with man to dwell,
Our Lord Immanuel,
My soul can finally know the God of Heaven.

Born with a road ahead,
Alone these blameless feet would tread
The path God chose to walk,
Before all time.
Born holding life and death,
Born bearing heaven's wealth of peace
That fills where none can fill
Our living stream.
