YuleUkes Lesson 1

Oh Christmas Tree and I Saw Three Ships are the first two songs for YuleUkers to learn. Each has just 2 chords (F & C7) and the music is on pages 12 and 13 in the 21 Easy Ukulele Songs for Christmas book. Once you’ve purchased the book you may also link to the video lessons which are here.

Here is an audio file of Oh Christmas Tree to practice with.

Mary’s boy child

Hark, now hear the angels sing, a new king born today,
And we shall live for evermore, because of Christmas Day
G C D7 G Em Am D7 / G G7 C Am G D7 G

Long time ago in Bethlehem, so the Holy Bible said,
Mary’s boy child Jesus Christ, was born on Christmas Day
G – C – D7 – G – / G G7 C Am G D7 G

Hark, now hear the angels sing, a new king born today,
And we shall live for evermore, because of Christmas Day
G C D7 G Em Am D7 / G G7 C Am G D7 G

While shepherds watch their flocks by night, they see a shining star,
they heard a choir sing a song, the music seemed came from afar
G – C – D7 – G – / G G7 C Am G D7 G

Hark, now hear the angels sing, a new king born today,
And we shall live for evermore, because of Christmas Day
G C D7 G Em Am D7 / G G7 C Am G D7 G

Now Joseph and his wife, Mary, came to Bethlehem that night,
they found no place to bear her child, not a single room was in sight
G – C – D7 – G – / G G7 C Am G D7 G

And then they found a little nook in a stable all forlorn,
and in a manger cold and dark, Mary’s little boy was born
G – C – D7 – G – / G G7 C Am G D7 G

Hark, now hear the angels sing, a new king born today,
And we shall live for evermore, because of Christmas Day
G C D7 G Em Am D7 / G G7 C Am G D7 G

Trumpets sound and angels sing listen to what they say
that Mary’s boy child Jesus Christ, was born on Christmas Day
G C D7 G Em Am D7 / G G7 C Am G D7 G

 

Silent Night


Silent night, Holy night,
All is calm, All is bright
Round yon virgin mother and child.
Holy infant so tender and mild,
Sleep in heavenly peace.
Sleep in heavenly peace.
Silent night, Holy night,
Shepherds quake at the sight,
Glories stream from heaven afar,
Heavenly hosts sing alleluia;
Christ the Savior, is born!
Christ the Savior, is born!
Silent night, Holy night,
Son of God, Love’s pure light
Radiant beams from thy holy face,
With the dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus, Lord, at thy birth.
Jesus, Lord, at thy birth.
