The Night Before Christmas 
Brandon Heath 
Key = E 

Intro : 
A E B F#m A E B 
(Repeat x2) 

Verse 1 : 
A      E       B      F#m         A    E         B 
Empty manger, perfect stranger, about to be born 
A           E  B   F#m         A   E       B 
Into darkness, sadness, desperate madness, creation so torn 
 A   E     B       F#m           A       E          B 
We were so lost on earth, no peace, no worth, no way to escape 
A       E        B         F#m  A       E 
In fear, no faith, no hope, no grace, and no light 
     Bsus4 
But that was the night before Christmas 

Interlude : A E B F#m A E B 

Verse 2 : 
A             E       B         F#m        A     E      B 
Warm hay, cold sweat, a mother, not yet, praying Godspeed the dawn 
A    E      B     F#m           A         E        B 
She looks to  her man, holding her hand, they wonder how long 
      A        E   B  F#m          A        E          B 
And the  shepherds, wise men  come to  find them, and bow to a king 
A         E         B      F#m         A      E       Bsus4         A          E  B  F#m 
One star above shining  on love, so bright it lit up the night before Christmas 

Chorus 1 : 
   A     E  B      A       E             Bsus4 
And the world didn’t know mercy was meek and so mild 
    A    E  B       A    E       B 
And the world didn’t know that truth was as pure as a child 
       A          E  B 
The night before Christmas 
       F#m       A          E  B 
The night before Christmas 

Interlude 

Chorus 2 : 
   A     E  B    A     E           Bsus4 
And the world didn’t know, redemption was sweet and so strong 
  A      E  B   A          E   B 
And the world didn’t know salvation was writing a song 
       A          E  B 
The night before Christmas 
        F#m       A          E  B 
The night before Christmas 
       A          E  B  F#m  A  E  B 
The night before Christmas 

A      E       B      F#m         A   E        B 
Empty manger, perfect stranger, about to be born
