Originally a poem written in 1848, this popular Christian Christmas carol is a nice challenge for beginners on any musical instrument :)

Once in  royal  Davids   city,

Bb      D ^F#-^D ^D-^C-Bb-A Bb
Stood a lowly   cattle   shed,

Where a mother laid her Baby,

In a manger for His bed.

Jesus Christ, her little   ~   Child.
