Guitar chords and lyrics to O Holy Night.

C                    F                  C
   O holy night! The stars are brightly shining,
          C/E          G7             C  
It is the night of our dear Saviour's birth.
                      F             C  C7
Long lay the world in sin and error pining,
          Em/B           B7            Em
'Til He appear'd and the soul felt its worth.
  G7/B               C
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices,
    G7/B            C
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.
---------------------------------------------

Am           Em       Dm             Am
Fall on your knees! O hear the angel voices!
  C/G  G7/F    C/E  F   C/G  G7                 C    C/E C/G C
O night    div-ine,   O night   when Christ was born;
  G     G7/F     C/E  Dm/F   C/G    G7        C
O night      div-ine,      O night, O night Divine.
---------------------------------------------

C                      F              C
   Led by the light of Faith serenely beaming,
             C/E           G7        C  
With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand.
                     F            C    C7
So led by light of a star sweetly gleaming,
              Em/B          B7     Em
Here come the wise men from Orient land.
    G7/B              C
The King of Kings lay thus in lowly manger;
   G7/B           C
In all our trials born to be our friend.

---------------------------------------------
Am           Em           Dm             Am
He knows our need, to our weakness is no stranger,
  C/G  G7/F     C/E  F  C/G  G7          C    C/E C/G C
Behold     your King! Before   Him lowly bend!
  G    G7/F     C/E  Dm/F   C/G  G7        C
Behold     your King,     Before Him lowly bend!
---------------------------------------------

C                        F          C
   Truly He taught us to love one another;
          C/E           G7        C  
His law is love and His gospel is peace.
                              F            C  C7
Chains shall He break for the slave is our brother;
           Em/B       B7             Em
And in His name all oppression shall cease.
      G7/B            C
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,
    G7/B          C
Let all within us praise His holy name.
---------------------------------------------

Am            Em      Dm                 Am
Christ is the Lord! O praise His Name forever,
    C/G  G7/F    C/E F    C/G G7           C    C/E C/G C
His power    and glo - ry ev  -  ermore proclaim.
    G    G7/F    C/E  Dm/F   C/G  G7        C
His power    and  glo -   ry ev - ermore proclaim.
