Beautiful arrangement of lyrics and chords on this traditional Christmas song. I 
hope I got the words right, I guessed on a few. Same with the chords - there may 
be a better chord fit in spots, if you have a suggestion shoot me a msg. Enjoy!

Intro Em G F#m G A

Bm7 G Bm7 G

D                Bm          G                   A
In the bleak mid  -  winter,  icy   wind   made    moan
Angels  and  arch - angels,   may have gathered there.
What then can I   give Him,   empty   as    I    am

D                    Bm         G      A       D
Earth stood hard as iron,      water  like a stone
Cherubim      and      seraphim rising in the air.
If   I   were   a   shepherd,  I would bring a lamb
                  
Em           F#m Gmaj7    A    Bm7     Em       Asus4 A
Snow on snow had fall  -  en,  snow on snow on snow
Oh   but   only   Ma  -  ry    in her maiden  bliss
If  I  were   a  wise  -  man, I would know my part

*
(1st)  G      Gm        D  E7   Em7      A    D   G D G
       In the bleak midwinter, long and long ago

(2nd)  G          Gm     D E7  Em7   A          D   Bm7 G A / D Bm7 Em A D
       Worshipped the beloved with a mother's kiss.

Em        F#m Gmaj7 A   Bm7     Em       Asus4 A
Heaven cannot hold Him, nor can earth sustain

G          Gm           D     E7  Em7     A       D     G D G
Heaven and earth shall fall away when He comes to reign

(3rd)  G      Gm        D    E7  Em7      A       D   G D G  - Em G F#m G A D
       What then can I give Him; I must give my heart

The words were written by Christina Rossetti, the great English poet. The melody was written by Gustav Holst.
