O LITTLE TOWN OF BETHLEHEM: LYRICS & CHORDS


VERSE 1:

      D                 G
Oh little town of Bethlehem

         D         A            D
How still we see thee lie

    B                          Em
Above the dark and dreamless sleep

       D       A           D
The silent stars go by

       Bm                  F#m
For in the dark sky shineth

       G                F#7
The everlasting light

       D                D7        G
The hopes and fears of all the years

       D        A        D
Are met in thee tonight


VERSE 2:

       D                       G
For Christ is born of Mary

        D             A     D
And gathered all above

          B                          Em
While mortals sleep the angels keep

         D            A               D
Their watch of wondering love

    Bm                      F#m
O morning stars together

        G                  F#7
Proclaim the holy birth

       D           D7      G
And praises sing to God the King

        D            A          D
And peace to men on earth


VERSE 3:

         D                 G
How silently, how silently

       D               A      D
The wondrous gift is given

      B                      Em
So God imparts to human hearts

       D              A       D
The blessings of His heaven

     Bm                        F#m
No ear may hear His coming

      G                      F#7
But in this world of sin

            D                D7    G
Where meek souls will receive Him still

       D                 A       D
The dear Christ enters in


VERSE 4:

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