Notes: "Intro" verses are without tempo

Intro 1:
Oh, a [C]man named [G]John the [D]Bap[Em]tist
Had been [C]herald[G]ing the [D]news
About the [C]coming [G]of a [D]Sav[Em]ior
For both the [C]Gentiles [G]and the [D]Jews[G].
Intro 2:
And it happened in Judea
In the town of Bethlehem,
With a bright star o'er the stable
Was born the Son of Man.
Verse 1:
Oh, the [G]angels were rejoicing
As the [C]tiny baby [G]cried,
For the [C]hope of man's sal[G]vation
In a [C]manger had ar[D]rived.
[G]Meek as a lowly shepherd,
But the [C]mightiest of [G]kings,
He gives [C]peace and life e[G]ternal[C]
To whoso[G]ever [D]calls His [G]name.
[G]Oh[D], Em[C]manu[G]el,
The [C]Father's [G]precious [Em]Son,[D]
Who forg[G]ives our [D]sins and [C]washes c[G]lean
The h[C]earts of [D]every[G]one.
Verse 2:
What a wonderful beginning
To the greatest story ever told;
His birth still rings with promise
As true as in days of old.
So let us sing His praises
And let us open up our hearts
And receive His timeless message
That gives us all a brand new start.
