  C              F              C        G        C  
O little town of Bethlehem, how still we see thee lie!  
 C    C/A# A        Dm                   C/G    G        C  
Above thy  deep and dreamless sleep, the silent stars go by.  
C          G/B   Am      E            Am     Dm/F  E   
Yet in thy dark  streets shineth  the everlasting  Light;  
    C                  F                 C      G    C  
The hopes and fears of all the years are met in thee tonight.  
  
  
  
(verse 2)  
C             F       C           G            C  
For Christ is born of Ma- ry, and gathered all above,  
 C    C/A#    A          Dm                 C/G      G         C  
While mortals sleep, the angels keep  their watch of wond'ring love.  
C          G/B   Am  E        Am        Dm/F  E   
O morning stars, together  proclaim the holy birth,  
    C               F                 C        G      C  
And praises sing to God the King, and peace to men on earth.  
 
 
  
  
(verse 3)  
C                 F             C        G       C  
How silently, how silently  the wondrous Gift is giv'n!  
 C    C/A#  A     Dm                C/G       G      C  
So God imparts to human hearts  the blessings of His Heav'n.  
C          G/B   Am  E           Am      Dm/F     E   
No ear may hear His coming, but in this world of sin,  
      C                 F                    C           G      C  
Where meek souls will receive Him still, the dear Christ enters in.

O holy Child of Bethlehem, descend to us, we pray;  
 C    C/A#   A       Dm           C/G     G    C  
Cast out our sin and enter in, be born in us today.  
C           G/B   Am  E           Am    Dm/F         E   
We hear the Christmas angels  the great glad tidings tell;  
  C             F                  C      G    C  
O come to us,  abide with us,  our Lord Emmanuel.
