G                C     Am          D          G 
Long time ago in Bethlehem, so the Holy Bible says,  
G                C     Am          G       D         G 
Mary`s boychild, Jesus Christ, was born on Christmas Day.

G         C        D      G       Em       Am     D 
Hark now! Hear the Angels sing, a King was born today, 
    G                C    Am     G        D         G 
and man will live forever more because of Christmas Day. 
  
#2.   
G                           C         Am 
While shepherds watch their flocks by night, 
           D                  G 
they see a bright new shining star. 
                  C      Am 
They hear a choir sing a song,  
          G         D          G 
the music seemed to come from afar.  
  
CHORUS:
G         C        D      G       Em       Am     D 
Hark now! Hear the Angels sing, a King was born today, 
    G                C    Am     G        D         G 
and man will live forever more because of Christmas Day.  
  
#3.   
G                  C     Am            D              G 
Now Joseph and his wife, Mary, came to Bethlehem that night. 
G                      C        Am 
They found no place to bear the child,  
      G      D           G 
not a single room was in sight.      
  
CHORUS:
G         C        D      G       Em       Am     D 
Hark now! Hear the Angels sing, a King was born today, 
    G                C    Am     G        D         G 
and man will live forever more because of Christmas Day. 
  
#4.   
G                     C      Am         D             G 
And then they found a little nook, in a stable all forlorn. 
G                C        Am           G      D       G 
And in a manger, cold and dark, Mary`s little boy was born. 
  
CHORUS:
G         C        D      G       Em       Am     D 
Hark now! Hear the Angels sing, a King was born today, 
    G                C    Am     G        D         G 
and man will live forever more because of Christmas Day. 


#5. 
G        C         D      G      Em        Am        D 
Trumpets sound and Angels sing...listen to what they say, 
D    G                C    Am     G        D         G 
that man will live forever more because of Christmas Day. 

CHORUS:(x2)
G         C        D      G       Em       Am     D 
Hark now! Hear the Angels sing, a King was born today, 
    G                C    Am     G        D         G 
and man will live forever more because of Christmas Day.
