C                F                    C                    G7  
Shepherds in the field, they watching o'er their flocks by night.
C                F                     C          G7      C   
All was calm and all was clear and the stars were burning bright.
    C            F                      C                  G7
The angel of the Lord came down and the night was like the day.
     C             F                  C          G7      C    
They saw the glory of the Lord and it took their breath away.

Verse 2:
    C                F                  C              G7  
The angel said, "Now have no fear, come here listen to me.
    C               F                C       G7  C   
The news I bring to you tonight will bless humanity.
   C            F               C          G7  
In Bethlehem is born this day a little Baby Boy.
C                 F                      C         G7         C

    C                     F                    C               G7  
The shepherds said, "W've seen the light, come on, let's not delay.
   C               F                     C     G7     C    
In Bethlehem we'll find the Christ Child lying in the hay.
    C                   F              C                   G7  
Now when they found the Baby Boy, with joy they spread the news.
   C                F              C    G7      C    
So let the joy they found that day be inside of you!
