They Stood In Silent Prayer
Recorded by Charley Pride
Written by Alex Zanetis

C G7 Em C Am
The little lambs were standing there beside the holy babe
C G7 C
They gazed with awe upon the child while shepherds knelt to pray
Em Am G7 C
They seemed at once to understand the wonder lying there
Em Am G7 Em Am
And all around the manger they stood in silent prayer

F G7 C F G7 C
Oh yes the Lord is come oh yes the King is here
Em Am G7 Em Am
And all around the manger they stood in silent prayer
G7 A7 G7 A7 F
(Hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah)

C G7 Em C Am
The cattle grazing in the fields could hear the shepherds pray
C G7 C
They turned and slowly came to find the stranger in the hay
Em Am G7 C
They bowed their heads in silence there was no sign of fear
Em Am G7 Em Am
And all around the manger they stood in silent prayer

Repeat #2

G7 Em C Am
The ass the oxen soon appeared for they had been afraid
C G7 C
They could not understand the gatherin' everyone had made
Em Am G7 C
And then they saw the Christ Child sleeping in his bed
Em Am G7 Em Am
At once they knew the meaning and slowly bowed their heads

F G7 C F G7 C
Oh yes the Lord is come oh yes the King is here
Em Am G7 Em Am
And all around the manger they stood in silent prayer
G7 A7 G7 A7 C D7 E7
(Hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah)
