Interesting sample--you all are very right--there is no actually singing of the song. How is someone supposed to learn the tune to this beautiful, traditional Christmas carol from a simple guitar lesson on playing chords and strumming? I'm not sure if I ever thought that the lyrics to this old hymn were cute. The song depicts the joy of the birth of Jesus Christ of the Christian faith. "Glory to the newborn King!" Thanks, at least, for printing the lyrics!

Learned this song in elementary school. Kinda glad I went private, cause this song is not that difficult. Once you learn the first verse the other 2 are the exact same.
