Nicholas Jonas - Joy To The World A Christmas Prayer chords

      
Okay. I never thought I'd learn to play something by any artist that had
anything to do with the name "jonas", but this has to be their only good
song. It's amazing. I've simplified it some because this was originally
written for piano, and some of the chord changes aren't necessary. Yes,
they sound nice, but with how hard I found it, myself being maybe at a low
intermediate level, they aren't really needed and don't change the way the
song sounds much if at all. If you would like the chords for the "more
advanced" version, email me and I'll send it to you when I get the
chance. :]

P.S. I know these chords are accurate because I have the sheet music.
