Capo: Anywhere you like, depending on the singer’s vocal range. First note to sing matches open D string.
Strumming: Start with a single strum on each chord. Also try slow, serene fingerpicking (no specific pattern necessary).
DAll is calm, Gall is bright
CRound yon virgin Gmother and child,
CHoly infant so Gtender and mild,
DSleep in heavenly Gpeace!
Sleep in Dheavenly Gpeace! GSilent night! Holy night!
DShepherds quake Gat the sight;
CGlories stream from Gheaven afar,
CHeavenly hosts sing GAlleluia,
DChrist, the Saviour, is Gborn!
Christ, the DSaviour, is Gborn! GSilent night! Holy night!
DSon of God, Glove’s pure light
CRadiant beams from Gthy holy face,
CWith the dawn of reGdeeming grace,
DJesus, Lord at thy Gbirth,
Jesus, DLord at thy Gbirth.
