G / / 2 / / Am / / 2 / / D7 / / 2 / / G / / 2 / /
The garment of life, be it tattered and torn
    D7                      G
The cloak of the soldier is withered and worn
    Em                          Am
But what child is this that was poverty-born
    D7                 G
The peace of Christmas Day

CHORUS (same pattern as verses):
The branch that bears the bright holly
The dove that rests in yonder tree
The light that shines for all to see
The peace of Christmas Day

Verse 2:
The hope that has slumbered for 2000 years
The promise that silenced 1000 fears
A faith that can hobble an ocean of tears
The peace of Christmas Day


Verse 3:
Add all the grief that people may bear
Total the strife, the troubles and care
Put them in columns and leave them right there
The peace of Christmas Day

(chorus twice; 2nd time, decelerate on last line)
