D                          D/F#
Oh, the snowflakes fell in silence
     Bm      A         D
Over Belleau Wood that night
      G                   D        
For a Christmas truce had been declared
   A
By both side of the fight
      D                D/F#
As we lay there in our trenches
    G
The silence broke in two
                    D
By a German soldier singing
  A                D       A
A song that we all knew


         D                D/F#
Though I did not know the language
    Bm        A      D
The song was "Silent Night"
       G              D
Then I heard my buddy whisper,
           A
"All is calm and all is bright"
         D                D/F# 
Then the fear and doubt surrounded me
           G
'Cause I'd die if I was wrong
                     D
But I stood up in my trench 
          A            D
And I began to sing along


	      A 
	Then across the frozen battlefield
	    G                  D
	Another's voice joined in
	      G               D/F#
	Until one by one each man became
	  Em            A
	A singer of the hymn




       D                  D/F#
Then I thought that I was dreaming
    Bm          A     D
For right there in my sight
G                D
Stood the German soldier
           A
'Neath the falling flakes of white
       D                   D/F#
And he raised his hand and smiled at me
 G  
As if he seemed to say
                      D
Here's hoping we both live
          A             D
To see us find a better way


	         A 
	Then the devil's clock struck midnight
	        G                D
	And the skies lit up again
	        G                 D/F#
	And the battlefield where heaven stood
	    Em             A
	Was blown to hell again


         D                D/F#
But for just one fleeting moment
    G
The answer seemed so clear
                 D
Heaven's not beyond the clouds
      A              Bm     A
It's just beyond the fear
    G                D
No, heaven's not beyond the clouds
         A             D
It's for us to find it here
