Verse 1:
     D          Em    D/F  G           D/F
Holy Child, who chose the  hearts of men 
   G      D/F♯  G   A
To be His favoured  home, 
        D        Em    D/F♯  G       D/F♯
Leaving heaven's gates for   Bethlehem, 
    Em      A        D
God came to call His own.
       F♯m     Bm Bm/A  G       D/F♯ 
Now to us, the highest  King is born;
  Em7      Gmaj7    Asus4  A
Behold the royal    Son.
      D         Em  D/F♯  G            D/F♯ 
Glory kneels to bind  up  all that's torn: 
    Em       A       D
The promised One has come.
Verse 2: 
        D       Em  D/F♯  G         D/F♯ 
Joy and pain as man He   knew on earth,
   G        D/F♯  G   A
No place to lay   His head.
     D       Em  D/F♯  G        D/F♯ 
As a servant He  embraced this world
    Em   A        D
And on a cross He bled.
       F♯m       Bm Bm/A   G       D/F♯ 
Having borne the deepest   grief of man
   Em7     Gmaj7    Asus4  A
He rose to heaven's throne;
        D         Em  D/F♯  G         D/F♯ 
Now I'm sheltered in  the   Father's hand
  Em     A        D
Until He calls me home.
Verse 3: 
        D       Em   D/F♯  G       D/F♯ 
May the gift of God  a - maze us still,
    G      D/F♯  G   A
The triumph of   all time.
       D       Em    D/F♯  G         D/F♯ 
As His child I kneel to    heaven's will 
   Em       A       D
To make His purpose mine.
            F♯m     Bm      Bm/A G         D/F♯ 
Though this road be scarred with trial and pain,
     Em7      Gmaj7    Asus4  A
It's paved with lavish grace.
        D        Em  D/F♯  G          D/F♯ 
Knowing Him will be   my   greatest gain,
    Em        A       D
His throne my resting place.

Holy Child, who chose the hearts of men 
To be His favored home,
Leaving heaven's gates for Bethlehem,
God came to call His own.
Now to us the highest King is born;
Behold the royal Son.
Glory kneels to bind up all that's torn:
The promised One has come.

Joy and pain as man He knew on earth,
No place to lay His head.
As a servant He embraced this world
And on a cross He bled.
Having borne the deepest grief of man
He rose to heaven's throne;
Now I'm sheltered in the Father's hand
Until He calls me home.

May the gift of God amaze us still,
The triumph of all time.
As His child I kneel to heaven's will
To make His purpose mine.
Though this road be scarred with trial and pain
It's paved with lavish grace.
Knowing Him will be my greatest gain,
His throne my resting place.
