                             Christmas Medley - Theocracy
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: CowManJones

Tuning: Standard (EADGBe)

**********************************************************************************
** So for this chord submission, I got the chords for each of these songs from  **
** other chord submissions here on UG and I listened to find the appropriate    **
** key for this medley and transposed them as needed. These chords are intended **
** for acoustic guitar and only offer an approximation of the original sound,   **
** as such, I didn't specify instructions for the parts that really rely on the **
** power metal sound.                                                           **
**********************************************************************************

[Angels We Have Heard on High]
E              B7       E
Angels we have heard on high
E               B7       E
Sweetly singing o'er the plains
E                 B7    E
And the mountains in reply 
E             B7     E
Echoing their joyous strains.

REF:
E  C#7  F#m  B7  E  A  B
Glo---------------------ria
E  B E  A   E   B
in excelsis De--o,
E  C#7  F#m  B7  E  A  B
Glo---------------------ria
E  B E  A   E B7 Em
in excelsis De---o.


[Carol of the Bells - Instrumental]
Note: This section is simplified a bit.  Also, the bass notes are impossible
to play with the lead the way I have it.  Sorry about that!  Maybe someone
smarter than me can figure that out.

[We Three Kings]
Em                 Bm         Em                Bm       Em
We three kings of Orient are; bearing gifts we traverse a-far
G          D/F#       Em       C         Am       B      Em
field and fountain, moor and mountain, following yonder star.

Em               Bm         Em                     Bm       Em
Born a king on Bethlehem's plain, gold I bring to crown Him again,
G      D/F#      Em     C      Am     B      Em
King forever, ceasing never, over us all to reign.

D      G               C       G                     C       G
O-oh star of wonder, star of light, star with royal beauty bright,
Em        D         C       D         G               C       G 
westward leading, still proceeding, guide us to thy perfect light.

[Verse Chords Once Through -- End on first Em of What Child Is This]


[What Child Is This - Instrumental]
     Em       G         D       Bm
What Child is this who, laid to rest
   Em     C      B
On Mary's lap is sleeping?
     Em     G          D       Bm
Whom Angels greet with anthems sweet,
      Em        Bm        Em
While shepherds watch are keeping?

G             D          Bm
This, this is Christ the King,
     Em        C         B
Whom shepherds guard and Angels sing;
G                D         Bm
Haste, haste, to bring Him laud,
    Em        B      Em
The Babe, the Son of Mary.

Was born on Christmas Day
E  Am      D7       G       B7
To save us all from Satan's power
     Em      A7     D
When we were gone astray

Oh  tidings of comfort and joy,
A7          D7
Comfort and joy,
Em  G          B7         
Oh  tidings of comfort and...

[O Holy Night]
E                  A                  E
O holy night, the stars are brightly shining; 
E                      B             E
It is the night of the dear Savior's birth. 
E                     A             E
Long lay the world in sin and error pining, 
          G#m            D#            G#m
Till he appeared and the soul felt its worth. 
  B                   E
A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices, 
    B               E
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.

Truly He taught us to love one another, 
E                       B            E
His law is love and His gospel is peace. 
E                              A              E
Chains shall he break, for the slave is our brother. 
            G#m       D#               G#m
And in his name all oppression shall cease. 
B                     E
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we, 
B                 E
Let all within us praise His holy name.

Fall on your knees,

Glad tidings brought and angel bright.
