Words: Translated from German by Percy Dearmer Music: Traditional German carol From: Guitar Picker (www.gospelmusic.tk) UNTO US A BOY IS BORN! [D] Unto us a [A] boy is [D] born! King of [G] all cre[D]ation, came He [A] to a [G] world for[D]lorn, the Lord of [A] every [D] nation, the [A] Lord of every [D] nation. Cradled in a stall was He with sleepy cows and asses; but the very beasts could see that He all men surpasses, that He all men surpasses. Herod then with fear was filled: "A Prince," he said, "in Jewry!" All the little boys he killed at Bethlehem in his fury, at Bethlehem in his fury. Now may Mary's Son, who came so long ago to love us, lead us all with hearts aflame unto the joys above us, unto the joys above us. Alpha and Omega He! Let the organ thunder, while the choir with peals of glee doth rend the air asunder, doth rend the air asunder! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Unto Us a Boy is Born C F C Unto us a boy is born F G King of all creation C Dm G Am F G Em Came He to a world forlorn Am F G Am G C The Lord of every nation Cradled in a stall was He With sleepy cows and asses But the very beasts could see That He all men surpasses Heron then with fear was filled “A prince,” he said, “in Jewry” All the little boys he killed At Bethlehem in his fury Now may Mary’s Son, who came So long ago to love us Lead us all with hearts aflame Unto the joys above us Omega and Alpha He Let the organ thunder While the choir with peals of glee Doth rend the air asunderHome
