When A Child is Born  Misc. Christmas

A ray of [C]hope f[G]lickers in the [C]sky [F]    [C]
A tiny star l[Am]ights up way up h[G]igh [F]    [G]
All acr[F]oss the land, da[G]wns a brand new m[Em]orn  [Am]
This comes to p[G]ass [C]when a [D]child is b[G]orn

A silent w[C]ish sa[G]ils the seven se[C]as  [F]    [C]
The winds of change wh[Am]isper in the t[G]rees[F]    [G]
And the w[F]alls of doubt cr[G]umble, tossed and t[Em]orn  [Am]
This comes to pa[G]ss w[C]hen a ch[D]ild is b[G]orn

A rosy hue settles all around
You've got the feel you're on solid ground
For a spell or two, no one seems forlorn
This comes to pass when a child is born
( Spoken over verse chords )
And all of this happens because the world is waiting
Waiting for one child
Black, white, yellow, no one knows
But a child that will grow up and turn tears to laughter
Hate to love, war to peace and everyone to everyone's neighbour
And misery and suffering will be words to be forgotten, forever

It's all a dream, an illusion now
It must come true, sometime soon somehow
All across the land, dawns a brand new morn
This comes to pass when a child is born
A ray of h[C]ope fl[G]ickers in the s[C]ky  [F]    [C]
A tiny star l[Am]ights up way up h[G]igh [F]    [G]
All acr[F]oss the land, da[G]wns a brand new m[Em]orn
T[Am]his comes to p[G]ass w[Dm]hen a ch[G7]ild is b[C]orn
