[V1]
   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 ||
    B                   F#
 Yet in thy dark streets shineth
    G           F#
 The everlasting light
    D         D7       G                    
 The hopes and fears of all the years
    D      A      D
 Are met in thee tonight

[V2]
    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. ||
   B                F#
 No ear may hear His coming,
    G                F#
 But in this world of sin,
      D          D7     G
 Where meek souls will receive Him still,
    D           A      D
 The dear Christ enters in.

[V3]
  D             G
 Oh holy child of Bethlehem,
    D        A       D
 Descend on us we pray;
   B              Em
 Cast out our sin and enter in
    D         A      D
 Be born in us today. ||
   B                F#
 We hear the Christmas angels,
    G                F#
 Their great glad tidings tell,
      D          D7     G
 Oh come to us, abide in us,
    D           A      D
 Our lord, Emanuel.
