D D/F# Oh, the snowflakes fell in silence Bm A D Over Belleau Wood that night G D For a Christmas truce had been declared A By both side of the fight D D/F# As we lay there in our trenches G The silence broke in two D By a German soldier singing A D A A song that we all knew D D/F# Though I did not know the language Bm A D The song was "Silent Night" G D Then I heard my buddy whisper, A "All is calm and all is bright" D D/F# Then the fear and doubt surrounded me G 'Cause I'd die if I was wrong D But I stood up in my trench A D And I began to sing along A Then across the frozen battlefield G D Another's voice joined in G D/F# Until one by one each man became Em A A singer of the hymn D D/F# Then I thought that I was dreaming Bm A D For right there in my sight G D Stood the German soldier A 'Neath the falling flakes of white D D/F# And he raised his hand and smiled at me G As if he seemed to say D Here's hoping we both live A D To see us find a better way A Then the devil's clock struck midnight G D And the skies lit up again G D/F# And the battlefield where heaven stood Em A Was blown to hell again D D/F# But for just one fleeting moment G The answer seemed so clear D Heaven's not beyond the clouds A Bm A It's just beyond the fear G D No, heaven's not beyond the clouds A D It's for us to find it here
