O Little Town of Bethlehem Chords
Brooks and Redner

  D              Em
O little town of Bethlehem
    D        A7       D
How still we see thee lie
 D        B7       Em
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
    D      A        D
The silent stars go by
D          Em           F#
Yet in thy dark streets shineth
    Em  G       F#
The everlasting Light
    D                  Em
The hopes and fears of all the years
    D      A      D
Are met in thee tonight

For Christ is born of Mary
And gathered all above
While mortals sleep, the angels keep
Their watch of wondering love
O morning stars together
Proclaim the holy birth
And praises sing to God the King
And Peace to men on earth

How silently, how silently
The wondrous gift is given!
So God imparts to human hearts
The blessings of His heaven.
No ear may his His coming,
But in this world of sin,
Where meek souls will receive him still,
The dear Christ enters in.

O holy Child of Bethlehem
Descend to us, we pray
Cast out our sin and enter in
Be born to us today
We hear the Christmas angels
The great glad tidings tell
O come to us, abide with us
Our Lord Emmanuel
