O Holy Night Chords
Roquemaure / Adams

C                 F                  C
O holy night, the stars are brightly shining;
                       G7            C
It is the night of the dear Savior’s birth!
C                     F             C
Long lay the world in sin and error pining,
          Em             B7            Em
Till He appeared and the soul felt its worth.
  G7                  C            
A thrill of hope, the weary soul rejoices,
    G7              C                
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.

Am           Em       Dm             Am
Fall on your knees, O hear the angel voices!
  C G7  C  F      C   G7                C
O night divine, O night when Christ was born!
  G7       C F  C    G7          C
O night, O holy night, O night divine!

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

Am           Em       Dm             Am
Fall on your knees, O hear the angel voices!
  C G7  C  F      C     G7              C
O night divine, O night when Christ was born!
  G7       C F  C    G7          C
O night, O holy night, O night divine!

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

Am           Em       Dm             Am
Fall on your knees, O hear the angel voices!
  C G7    C F      C   G7               C
O night divine, O night when Christ was born!
  G7       C F  C    G7          C
O night, O holy night, O night divine!
