Good King Wenceslas


             [Verse 1]
G         Em    G           D
Good King Wenceslas looked out
C               G
on the feast of Stephen
G         Em      G      D
When the snow lay round about
C                  G
deep and crisp and even
G                  G         Em
Brightly shone the moon that night
C                    G
though the frost was cruel
G      C        Em      D
When a poor man came in sight
G            D   Em   C   G
gathering winter fu   -   el

[Verse 2]
G         Em    G           D
"Hither, page, and stand by me,
C                   G
If thou know'st it, telling,
G      Em       G      D
Yonder peasant, who is he?
C                  G
Where and what his dwelling?"
G                 G           Em
"Sire, he lives a good league hence,
C              G
Underneath the mountain;
G     C           Em     D
Right against the forest fence,
G          D     Em     C   G
By Saint Agnes'  foun   -   tain."

[Verse 3]
G         Em    G           D
"Bring me flesh, and bring me wine,
C                   G
Bring me pine logs hither:
G      Em       G      D
Thou and I will see him dine,
C                  G
When we bear them thither."
G                 G           Em
Page and monarch, forth they went,
C               G
Forth they went together;
G         C           Em   D
Thro' the rude wind's wild lament
G       D      Em    C   G
And the bitter wea   -   ther.

[Verse 4]
G          Em       G      D
"Sire, the night is darker now,
C                  G
And the wind blows stronger;
G        Em       G        D
Fails my heart, I know not how,
C           G
I can go no longer."
G                  G       Em
Mark my footsteps, good my page;
C                  G
Tread thou in them boldly:
G          C        Em       D
Thou shalt find the winter's rage
G          D          Em    C  G
Freeze thy blood less cold  -  ly."

[Verse 5]
G      Em       G        D
In his master's steps he trod,
C                  G
Where the snow lay dinted;
G        Em     G    D
Heat was in the very sod
C                   G
Which the saint had printed.
G          G                 Em
Therefore, Christian men, be sure,
C                 G
Wealth or rank possessing,
G         C        Em        D
Thou  who now will bless the poor,
G                D    Em   C  G
Shall yourselves find bles -  sing.
