I used CowManJones' version and added and changed some Chords.
It should sound quite good, although I can't comletely guarantee for accuracy.
The original song seems to be played like this in Half-Step-Down-Tuning.

If you like it, check out my GP5 Acoustic Version including Vocals!
 
Have fun :)



  Intro like one Verse


Verse 1:

Em                                               D
All my life, I've waited and watched through the eyes of faith
   Em                     C D Em
To see the consolation of Israel
Em                                          D
And even though the flame of my life is now growing dim
  Em                          C D Em
I know I'll see the Savior of Israel
        G                      D
For the Spirit of the Lord has promised unto me
     G                               C         D    Em
That I would not see death before my eyes have seen Him
    G                     D
The promise is alive, for through this little child
      G                        C D Em
God's holy light illuminates Jerusalem

Verse 2:

     Em                                         D
This child will cause the falling and rising of many souls
  Em                         C D Em
A sign for all the people of Israel
     Em                                      D
This child will be the way and the life unto every soul
   Em                         C  D     Em
To every generation shall the Gentiles tell
        G
For the way has been prepared
       D
in the sight of every man
    G                             C   D Em
The Son of God Himself is born in Bethlehem
  G                        D
A sacrifice is made in the temple on this day
  G                             C D Em
Redemption reaches far beyond Jerusalem

         G                 D            Em
Has this little child come to redeem us all?
                    C
To save us from the fall
  Bm             C
Redemption is in sight

Behold, the Son shines bright

In Bethlehem tonight


Chorus 3 is played three times, but the G in the beginning is only used for the 
first time. For the last two times of it you can add these Backing Vocals:


A                               E
When all the world was sleeping deep in darkness
F#m                     
A child in Bethlehem fulfilled the promise
D                         C#m
The ancients prophesied a great deliverer
D                             E                             
The one to break the curse of sin forever
A                       E
He didn't come with any worldly fanfare
F#m
No royal treatment, just a dark cross to bear
D                        C#m
In Bethlehem a brand new dawn is rising
D                           E
A star to guide the way, forever shining
D                            E
New hope was born for all creation that night
A 
For though the darkness came the brightest light

Thanks for your comment :)
Today I made an update, because the G-D-Em-Part sounds really better, when I replace it by C-D-Em. The change should be approved soon.
Merry Christmas!
