Am

Away in the east shines a star in the sky

Am F E

That leads us to where He is born

Am

Bearing good tidings and gifts we shall give

C E Am

To Him on this first Christmas morning

C E Am

To Him on this first Christmas morning

Holy our journey and holy our love

That takes us to find and adore Him

And blessed the baby that sleeps in His bed

And wakes on this first Christmas morning

And wakes on this first Christmas morning

Bridge:

F E Am

Ah - ah - ah - ah - alleluia

F E Am

Ah - ah - ah - ah - alleluia

F E F E

Ah - ah - ah - ah - Ah - ah - ah - ah -

F E Am

Ah - ah - ah - ah - alleluia

The Lord in His wisdom, the Lord in His grace

Has given to man a redeemer

To save us from sin and to show us the light

That shines on this first Christmas morning

And will shine ever each Christmas morning
