Well, that's it, this is a really great song. Have fun playing it.

If you have an acoustic in the background to strum inversions of the chords listed,
it can sound really neat.

but ill leave that to you.

Here are the entire words:

O holy night, the stars are brightly shining;
It is the night of the dear Saviour's birth.
Long lay the world in sin and sorrow pining,
Till He appeared and the soul felt its worth.
A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices,
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.

Fall on your knees,
O hear the angel voices.
O night divine,
O night when Christ was born.
O night divine,
O night when Christ was born.


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

Fall on your knees,
O hear the angel voices.
O night divine
O night when Christ was born.
O night divine
O night when Christ was born.


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

(USE THE CHORUS RIFF FOR THIS PART)

Christ is the Lord,
His name forever praise ye,
His power and glory ever more proclaim
His power and glory ever more proclaim
