By: Matthew West

Intro G / / / | Am / / / | D / / / | Gsus / G / | Vs 1 G Take me back to eight years old Am D C G The little church on a dead end road With a candle flicker in one hand and dad’s hand in the other G Take me back to Silent Night Am D C G Am D My heart was full and the world was right Cuz right now the world looks nothing like those innocent Decembers These days peace on earth is hard to find G C And I need you to remind me one more time Chorus G Am D G D/F# Em Am You’re still the hope of Christmas You’re still the light when the world looks dark You’re still the hope of Christmas D And You’re still the hope of my heart Turn G / / / | Am / / / | D / / / | Gsus / G / | Vs 3 G Watch the snow flakes falling down Am D C G Like a blanket on this town For a moment we can hardly see the pain this year has brought us G May the sick find healing’s touch Am D C G May hatred’s fight be won with love And may every heart make room for you the One who came to save us Chorus Turn G / / / | Am / / / | D / / / | Gsus / D / | G / / / | Am / / / | D / / / | G / / / | Vs 3 G I Bowed my head to pray tonight Am D C G Felt my little girl by my side She slipped her tiny hand in mine, and we both talked to you G And it took me back to 8 years old Am my daddy’s hand and a story told D C G About Heaven’s love in a manger low, and a promise that’s still true Chorus Turn G / / / | End Chorus G Am D G D/F# You’re still the hope of Christmas You’re still the light when the world looks dark Em Am You’re still the hope of Christmas / / / | D G And You’re still the hope of my heart
