From: "Neil" firstname.lastname@example.org This is the melody that is popular in the UK O little town of Bethlehem (UK version) C F G Dm G C O little town of Bethlehem, how still we see thee lie! Dm G Dm G C Above thy deep and dreamless sleep, the silent stars go by. Em Am G Am Dm G Yet in thy dark streets shineth the everlasting Light; C F G Dm G C The hopes and fears of all the years are met in thee tonight. C F G Dm G C For Christ is born of Ma- ry, and gathered all above, Dm G Dm G C While mortals sleep, the angels keep their watch of wond'ring love. Em Am G Am Dm G O morning stars, together proclaim the holy birth, C F G Dm G C And praises sing to God the King, and peace to men on earth. C F G Dm G C How silently, how silently the wondrous Gift is giv'n! Dm G Dm G C So God imparts to human hearts the blessings of His Heav'n. Em Am G Am Dm G No ear may hear His coming, but in this world of sin, C F G Dm G C Where meek souls will receive Him still, the dear Christ enters in. F G Dm G C O holy Child of Bethlehem, descend to us, we pray; Dm G Dm G C Cast out our sin and enter in, be born in us today. Em Am G Am Dm G We hear the Christmas angels the great glad tidings tell; C F G Dm G C O come to us, abide with us, our Lord Emmanuel.Home
