Oh, Holy Night

 

G                         C                        G
O holy night, the stars are brightly shining;
                              D                 G
It is the night of the dear Savior’s birth!
G                              C                 G
Long lay the world in sin and error pining,
             Bm                  F#             Bm
Till He appeared and the soul felt its worth.
    D                        G            
A thrill of hope, the weary soul rejoices,
      D                      G                
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.

Em              Bm       Am                 Em
Fall on your knees, O hear the angel voices!

O night divine,    O night when Christ was born!

O night divine!, O night,   O night divine!

G                          C              G
Led by the light of faith serenely beaming,
                          D        G
With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand.
G                    C             G
So led by light of a star sweetly gleaming,
            Bm             F#    Bm
Here came the wise men from Orient land.
   D                G  
The King of kings lay thus in lowly manger,
  D             G  
In all our trials born to be our friend!

Em           Bm       Am             Em
Fall on your knees, O hear the angel voices!

O night divine, O night when Christ was born!
 D    G   C       G     D          G
O night divine!, O night,   O night divine!


G                     C          G
Truly He taught us to love one another;
                       D        G
His law is love and His Gospel is peace.
G                             C            G
Chains shall He break for the slave is our brother
           Bm        F#             Bm
And in His Name all oppression shall cease.
      D             G  
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,
    D           G  
Let all within us praise His holy Name!

Em            Bm         Am         Em
Christ is the Lord! Then ever, ever praise we,
  G   D      G  C       G  D     G
His power and glory ever more proclaim!

His power and glory ever more proclaim!

Fall on your knees, O hear the angel voices!

O night divine, O night when Christ was born!
