{Intro}
D    Dsus   D   Dsus  
{Verse 1}
D                 G2                 D
O Holy Night, the stars are brightly shining
                       A        D          Dsus
It is the night of the dear Savior's birth 
D                     G2            D
Long lay the world in sin and error pining 
          F♯m/C♯         C♯            F♯m
'Til He appeared and the soul felt its worth 
  A                  D                 Dsus
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices
    A               D
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn
{Chorus 1}
Bm7          F♯m     Em                Bm7
Fall on your knees, oh, hear the angel voices 
 D   A    Bm7   G2   D    A             D           
O night divine,    O night when Christ was born
D   Dsus   D   Dsus
{Verse 1}
D                     G2        D
Truly He taught us to love one another
                        A        D      Dsus
His law is love and His gospel is peace
D                              G2              D
Chains He shall break, for the slave he is our brother
           F♯m/C♯     C♯            F♯m
And in His name all oppression shall   cease 
      A               D                 
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise 
Dsus    A             D
We let all within us, praise His holy name
{Chorus 2}
Bm7           F♯m       Em          Bm7
Christ is the Lord, and ever we shall praise Thee
   D   A      Bm7   G2     D   A            D    A/C♯
His power and glo   -   ry e  -  ver more proclaim 
Bm7        F♯m        Em               Bm7   A/C♯
Fall on your knees, oh, hear the angel voices
 D       Bm7    G2   D   A              D
O night divine,    O night when Christ was born
 A        Bm7   G2   D      A           D
O night divine,    O night,   O night divine
 A        D/F♯  Em7    D    A             D   Dsus   
O night divine,      O night,   O night divine! 
D   Dsus   D

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
‘Til 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
Oh, hear the angel voices
O night divine
O night when Christ was born

Truly He taught us to love one another
His law is love and His gospel is peace
Chains He shall break
For the slave he is our brother
And in His name all oppression shall cease
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we
Let all within us, praise His holy name


Christ is the Lord
And ever we shall praise Thee
His power and glory ever more proclaim
Fall on your knees
Oh, hear the angel voices
O night divine
O night when Christ was born;
O night divine, O night, O night divine!
O night divine, O night, O night divine!
