O Holy Night (traditional)
Written by: Adolphe Adam

*I have written this out in the key of C, if you want to make it higher or
lower use a capo or see my lesson under "Capo conversion/transposing" to 
change the key to suit your voice. (I added the key of G at the bottom)

General idea for picking pattern:
E-----------------------------
B--------1-----------1--------
G------0---0-------0---0------
D----2-------2---2-------2----
A--3-----------3--------------
E----------------------------

Intro: C

C                 F                   C
O holy night, the stars are brightly shining 
                        G              C
It is the night of our dear Saviour's birth 
C                     F              C
Long lay the world in sin and error pining 
          Em             B7            Em
Til He appeared and the soul felt its worth 
   G                  C
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices 
    G                C
For yonder breaks, a new and glorious morn 
Am            Em       Dm             Am
Fall on your knees, oh hear the angel voices 
   C  G    C  F
O night divine 
   C   G                C 
O night when Christ was born 
   G       C Dm   C    G           C
O night, O holy night, O night divine 

Verse 2:
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
He knows our need, our weakness is no stranger
Behold, your king
Before Him lowly bend
Behold, your king before Him lowly bend

Verse 3:
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 grateful chorus raise we
Let all within us praise His holy name
Christ is the Lord, O praise His name forever
His power and glory ever more proclaim
