D/A  Dmaj7/A             D6/A   G/A                 [ D/A ]
       My poor heart was heavy,   my poor heart was stone
D/A    Dmaj7/A                D6/A     G/A             [ D/A ]
Then I heard them - they were angels,    and they were singing:
D/A  Dmaj7/A         D6/A   G/A
        'You're not alone',  
            D/A   Dmaj7/A        D6/A   G/E          [ D/A ]
'There is a peace   you've never known'
 
D/A  Dmaj7/A        D6/A     G/A                [ D/A ]
       I could hear trumpets,  I could hear them blow
D/A      Dmaj7/A         D6/A     G/A         [ D/A ]
Then the angels summoned chariots,  the angels told them
D/A  Dmaj7/A          D6/A   G/A
        'Swing, swing low'
           D/A       Dmaj7/A          D6/A   G/E
The angels told them   'swing, swing low'
 
G            D/F#

D/A     Dmaj7/A              D6/A     G/A          [ D/A ]
May you hear them - they are angels,    they may be singing 
D/A  Dmaj7/A    D6/A   G/A
        About a throne,
        D/A    Dmaj7/A         D6/A   G/E
