This song was the last of four tracks released on "Music as a Weapon - EP" by Flyleaf in 2006.
The EP was part of the Music as a Weapon III tour, and is not being sold anymore (there 
were only 1000 cds made).
The entire song is a standard four chord progression, with two beats of each chord in 
4/4 at about 82 bpm.
The original key is Am, but I tabulated this in Em for easier singing.
If you want to play it in the original key, transpose the song up 5 half steps, so the 
chord progression is Am, F, C, and G.


Intro
| Em   | C   | G   | D   :||  (x2)

Verse 1
Em       C           G        D
  A frightened virgin teenage girl
Em         C            G
Receives a message that defies the laws
D       Em         C             G        D
Of this world; All she can do is weep and nod
Em       C               G
She's to bring into this world
    D      Em    C    G    D
The Son of God


Chorus 1
Em       C                  G
   God's angels sound their trumpets
    D          Em
And blow their horns
            C            G               D
Tonight the long awaited Savior is to be born
Em           C          G
The goodness bound by Satan
            D
It has been torn
Em          C               G
  With this baby's precious brow
D         Em      C    G    D
Ready for thorns


Verse 2
Em          C                G             D
   A star appears fulfilling ancient prophecy
Em                  C
There's an ounce of fear
            G              D
As wise men follow faithfully
Em         C           G                  D
The virgin Mary brings forth the human Savior
Em         C                  G                 D
  And this future king sleeps soundly in the manger
Em    C                G   D
        Soundly in the manger


(Chorus 1)


Verse 3
Em        C             G              D
  Tonight He is born so one day He can die
Em               C                 G                D
  To heal hearts that are torn and live the perfect life
Em          C           G
  So He can hang upon a cross
           D        Em
And we can take His life
          C                   G              D
So we can live as sinners and He can pay the price
Em        C             G              D
  Tonight He is born so one day He can die
Em   C           G      D      (Chorus)
     But He will rise again


Chorus 2
Em       C                  G
   God's angels sound their trumpets
    D          Em
And blow their horns
            C            G               D
Tonight the long awaited Savior is to be born
Em           C          G
The goodness bound by Satan
            D
It has been torn
Em          C               G
  With this baby's precious brow
D         Em      C    G
Ready for thorns
D         Em
Ready for thorns

I agree, playing it with Am instead of Em sounds better.
