The Nativity By Jeff Gilpin


December 24th, 2011




Intro:


Strumming A




Verse 1


[A]There was a baby Jesus


Many years ago


Rooming with the animals


[G]Cold but not much [A]snow


Laying near his mama


A cradle filled with hay


Not too many babies


[G]Come out that way to[A]day




Chorus 1

[D]Not much [C]Christmas [A]cheer


When [G]Jesus was [D]born that [A]year


[D]Wonder what he [C]thinks to[A]day


[G]Wonder [D]what he [C]hears [A]




Verse 2


I wonder if he had an


Idea what was ahead


Cradled in a manger


[G]Hay mattress for a [A]bed


Simple scene before him



But with shepherds and with kings


Gifts they gave this baby


Or [G]so the carolers [A]sing




Chrous 2

A [D]simple [C]Christmas [A]scene


We [G]call the na[D]tivi[A]ty


[D]Hono[C]ring his [A]birth


And [G]what his [D]life would [C]be [A]




Verse 3


Today we shop for presents


To give both young and old


Forgetting where it came from


[G]The story we’d been [A]told


About a baby in a manger


A simple holy scene


Somehow put into this world


And [G]whom the carolers [A]sing




Chorus 3

[D]Away [C]in a [A]manger


[G]About [D]Jesus’ [A]birth


[D]Joy [C]to the [A]world


[G]And [D]peace on [C]earth[A]
