Immanuel Waltz

Recording as featured on the album Favoured Chick.

Encore sheet music - melody only.


Intro: Eb, Bb, Ab, Eb, Ab, Eb, Bb, Eb


Verse 1

        Eb               Bb            Ab             Eb

The silence of a hillside, a Bethlehem night

     Ab              Eb/G       F7           Bb

is rent by the chorus of angels in flight.

          Eb                 Bb           Ab             Eb

From shepherding duties surprises and jolts,

     Ab           Eb/G                Bb       Eb

inspires the watchers in Immanuel waltz.


Verse 2

So rushing excited to the ramshackle sty

they see a baby, a crude place to lie.

A place for the poultry, donkeys and colts

becomes the place for Immanuel waltz



     Eb         Bb            Ab            Eb

Immanuel waltz, letís join in the ball!

       Ab                   Eb               F7           Bb

We dance and we twirl, round candle-lit hall.

     Eb         Bb            Ab             Eb/G

Immanuel waltz, God with us! Amen!

          Ab                        Eb/G

Letís waltz around the world with

    Bb            Eb     Bb   Ab   Eb

Immanuel  again


Verse 3

Sages came from the East, observed the new sign,

followed the star, sought the King most divine.

Oíer the childís dwelling place the royal star halts.

There they join in the Immanuel waltz


Verse 4

Immanuel, Son of God with us on earth.

Amazing He stooped to a most humble birth!

Most Royal lamb without blemish or faults

dips once and rises in Immanuel waltz.
