1. A ray of hope flickers in the sky,

                     Am                     G       (FG)

    a tiny star lights up way up high,

              F                   G                            Em

    all across the land dawns a brand-new morn ,

     Am                    G       Dm      G7        C 

    this comes to pass when a child is born.

2. A silent wish sails the seven seas,

                                      Am                  G       (FG)

    the winds of change whisper in the trees,

                    F                    G                          Em

    and the walls of doubt crumble tossed and torn,

     Am                   G       Dm       G7        C

    this comes to pass when a child is born.

3. A rosy dawn settles all around,

                                    Am                    G        (FG)

    you got the feeling, you`re on solid ground,

             F               G                     Em

    for spell or two no-one seems forlorn,

     Am                   G       Dm       G7        C

    this comes to pass when a child is born.

4. ( spoken) It`s all a dream and illusion now,

                                 Am                              G      (FG)

    it must come true, sometime soon somehow,

              F                   G                            Em

    all across the land dawns a brand-new morn,

    Am                     G       Dm       G7        C

    this comes  to pass when a child is born.
