Verse 1:
G      Gmaj7      C6/G               G
O holy night, the stars are brightly shining,
   D/F♯     Em2          C6             G    D/G
It is   the night of the dear Saviour's birth.
G            Gmaj7      C6/G           G
Long lay the world  in  sin  and error pining,
             Bm/F♯          F♯            Bm
Till He ap – peared and the soul felt its worth.
  C/D         D        G
A thrill of hope,  the weary world rejoices,
    C/D            D  G                  D/F♯
For yon-der breaks a new and glorious morn:
Em           Bm       Am             Em      D/F♯
Fall on your knees, O hear the angel voi  -  ces!
  G    D         G    C2   G/D    D                  G
O ni - ght    di-vine,   O night     when Christ was born!

O night,  O  ho  -  ly  night, O night di – vine
Verse 2:
Em         G        C6              G
Led by the light of faith serenely beaming,
     D/F♯       Em2           C6           G    D/G
With glow - ing hearts by His cra - dle we stand;
G         Gmaj7       C6/G           G
So led by light  of a  star  sweetly gleaming,
               Bm/F♯         F♯     Bm
Here came the  wise men from Orient land.
    C/D         D     G
The King of kings lay thus in lowly manger,
    C/D          D    G                 D/F♯
In  all  our tri-als born to be our friend;
Em           Bm           Am              Em    D/F♯
He knows our need, to our weak-ness is no stranger.
   G    D       G     C2       G/D   D            G
Be-ho - ld your King;     be - fore     Him lowly bend!
   D    D7      G/B   C     G/D   D         G
Be-hold    your King;    be-fore  Him lowly bend!
Verse 3:
G        Gmaj7          C6/G         G
Truly He taught  us  to love one a - nother,
    D/F♯    Em2           C6        G    D/G
His law  is love  and His gospel is peace;
 G              Gmaj7          C6/G          G
Chains shall He break, for the slave  is our brother,
        Bm/F♯        F♯            Bm
And His name all opp-ression shall cease.
       C/D     D       G
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raising,
    C/D        D   G                 D/F♯
Let all within us praise His holy name.
Em            Bm      Am                  Em  D/F♯
Christ is the Lord, O praise His name for-ever!
    G  D       G     C2   G/D   D       G
His po-wer and glo - ry   ever-more pro-claim!
    D     D7      G/B  C      G/D   D           G    B♭maj7  G
His power    and  glo  -  ry   ev  - ermore pro-claim! 

O holy night, the stars are brightly shining,

It is the night of the dear Savior’s birth.
Long lay the world in sin and error pining,

Till He appeared and the soul felt its worth.

A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices,

For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn:

Fall on your knees, O hear the angel voices!

O night divine, O night when Christ was born!

O night, O holy night, O night divine!

Led by the light of faith serenely beaming,

With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand;

So led by light of a star sweetly gleaming,

Here came the wise men from Orient land.

The King of kings lay thus in lowly manger,

In all our trials born to be our friend;

He knows our need, to our weakness is no stranger.

Behold your King; before Him lowly bend!

Behold your King; before Him lowly bend!

Truly He taught us to love one another,

His law is love and His gospel is peace;

Chains shall He break, for the slave is our brother,

And in His name all oppression shall cease.

Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raising,

Let all within us praise His holy name.

Christ is the Lord, O praise His name forever!

His power and glory evermore proclaim!

His power and glory evermore proclaim!
