About this tab version
I checked every other version on here and I couldn't find one that was exactly what I was looking for like this one I've created. Several chords are slightly different, and the chorus lyrics are different. Also added "verse" and "chorus" labels/formatting to help organize the song better. Was this info helpful? Yes No
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
[Verse 1]

C                 F                  C
O holy night, the stars are brightly shining;
                       G    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.
  G         G7        C            
A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices,
    G      G7       C                      G/B
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.

[Chorus 1]

Am           Em       Dm             Am      G/B
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!
  G  G7   C F      C  G7            F   C
O night divine!, O night, O night divine!

[Verse 2]

C                   F              C
Led by the light of faith serenely beaming,
                           G  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.
    G       G7        C  
The King of kings lay thus in lowly manger,
   G       G7      C                     G/B
In all our tri-als born to be our Friend!

[Chorus 2]

Am           Em           Dm             Am        G/B
He knows our need, to our weakness is no stranger!
   C    G7      C F     C  G7         C
Be-ho...ld your King, before Him lowly bend!
   G    G7      C F     C  G7         F     C
Be-ho...ld your King, before Him lowly bend!

[Verse 3]

C                     F          C
Truly He taught us to love one another;
                        G 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.
      G        G7     C  
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,
    G       G7    C                     G/B
Let all within us praise His holy name!

[Chorus 3]

Am            Em        Dm                  Am    G/B
Christ is the Lord! Oh, praise His name for-ever! 
    C  G7     C F   C G7            C
His pow'r and glory e...ver-more proclaim!
    G  G7     C F   C G7            F     C
His pow'r and glory e...ver-more proclaim!

I don't know who you are, but you just made my year! I hope we can look forward to more of your work, especially Christmas carols, and even the cheesy and non-traditional stuff.

Hey thanks for the encouragement! I'm so glad that I was able to help. :) Hopefully I can get around to submitting more chord charts. I enjoy it, but it's time-consuming. Thanks again.
