G                  Am
Oh little town of Bethlehem, how
|G            D7|           G
still we see thee lie!
     |G                E|               Am
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep, the
|G         D7 |        G
silent stars go by.
|G               Am|                   B7
Yet in the dark streets shineth the

The hopes and fears of all the years are
|G           D7|        G
met in thee tonight.

G                         Am
For Christ is born of Mary, and
|G              D7|    G
gathered all above
               |G             E |             Am
While mortals sleep, the angels keep
            |G               D7 |           G
their watch of wond’ring love.
       |G           Am|        B7
O morning stars, together pro-
  |Em            C|    B7
claim the holy birth
              G                      Am
And praises sing to God the King, and
|G                 D7 |        G
peace to men on earth.

G                     Am
Oh holy Child of Bethlehem, de-
    |G          D7|          G
scend to us, we pray.
   |G                    E |         Am
Cast out our sin and enter in; be
  |G         D7 |     G
born in us to day.
          |G                Am |         B7
We hear the Christmas angels the
|Em               C |         B7
great glad tidings tell.
         G                     Am
Oh come to us, abide with us our
|G              D7 |        G
Lord. Im-ma-nu-el!
