The Huron Carol Chords

      Am     G       Dm     Em7       Am      Em7       Am
'Twas in the moon of winter-time when all the birds had fled, 
Am     G      Dm   Em7     Am     G        Am
That mighty Gitchi Manitou sent angel choirs instead; 
C          Em       Am         G        Am        G       Am        E
Before their light the stars grew dim, and wond’ring hunters heard the hymn: 
Am         G   F   E     Am   Em7 Am      Em   Am  E7   Am
"Jesus your King is born, Jesus is born, In excelsis gloria." 
Am    G       Dm     Em7      Am     Em7       Am
Within a lodge of broken bark the tender Babe was found, 
Am     G       Dm     Em7     Am         G      Am
A ragged robe of rabbit skin enwrapp'd His beauty round; 
C      Em     Am          G         Am    G         Am       E
But as the hunter braves drew nigh, the angel song rang loud and high... 
Am         G   F   E     Am   Em7 Am      Em   Am  E7   Am
"Jesus your King is born, Jesus is born, In excelsis gloria." 
Am       G      Dm     Em7     Am      Em7 Am
O children of the forest free, O sons of Manitou, 
Am   G        Dm        Em7       Am     G       Am
The Holy Child of earth and heaven is born today for you. 
C       Em       Am      G       Am         G       Am        E
Come kneel before the radiant Boy who brings you beauty, peace and joy.
Am         G   F   E     Am   Em7 Am      Em   Am  E7   Am
"Jesus your King is born, Jesus is born, In excelsis gloria." 
Am       G       Dm     Em7     Am     Em7       Am
The earliest moon of winter-time is not so round and fair,
Am      G       Dm    Em7    Am       G      Am
As was the ring of glory on the helpless infant there;
C           Em    Am       G          Am       G       Am     E
The chiefs from far before him knelt with gifts of fox and beaver pelt.
Am         G   F   E     Am   Em7 Am      Em   Am  E7   Am
"Jesus your King is born, Jesus is born, In excelsis gloria."
