Born a king on Bethlehem\'s plain,

Gold I bring to crown him again

King forever, ceasing never,

Worship him God most high

The "F" on "To save us all..." (and similar parts) should be a "Dm".

   Dm               C
To save us all from Satan's power


Between the "F" and the "E" over "still proceeding guide us..." (and similar parts) should be a "Dm".

Am       G        C     F
Westward leading, still proceeding.
Dm E Am E Am E
Guide us to thy perfect light.


Otherwise, I think it's spot on.

Because of this I figured it out quite quickly. Thanks!

Great tabs for sure. A possible alternative to Eagle-Man's amendment, I prefer the following

G D D7
To save us all from Satan's power
