Couldn't find guitar chords for this carol anywhere, so I notated them myself. 
Original choral piece in Gb, transposed down 2 half steps to E, with optional key 
change to F. Progressions accurate to the original.



E          C#m         A           B

D#dim       G#m         C#m       F#m
How can you measure the love of a mother
   D           A            B            E
Or how can you write down a baby's first cry? 
F#m          E            B             E
Candlelight, angel light, firelight and star glow
A            E           C#m      F#7 B
Shine on his cradle till breaking of dawn
A       B      A           E
Gloria, Gloria in excelsis Deo!
A          E           B               E
Angels are singing the Christ child is born



                           

E             C#m           A          B
Shepherds and wise men will kneel and adore him

Seraphim round him their vigil will keep
D#dim      G#m             C#m            F#m
Nations proclaim him their Lord and their Savior
    D         A            B           E
But Mary will hold him and sing him to sleep
F#m          E            B             E
Candlelight, angel light, firelight and star glow
A            E           C#m      F#7 B
Shine on his cradle till breaking of dawn
A       B      A           E
