While You Were Sleeping

Casting Crowns

 CGAm
      Oh little town of Bethlehem
 FCGAmF
Looks like another silent nigh    
 CGAm
 Above your deep and dreamless sleep
 FCGAmF
A giant star lights up the sky      
 CGAm
And while you're lying in the dark
 FCGAmF
There shines an everlasting light      
 CGAm
 For the King has left His throne
 FCGAmF
And is sleeping in a manger tonight  

 CGAmF
Oh Bethlehem, what you have missed while you were sleeping
 CG
For God became a man
 AmF
And stepped into your world today
 CGAmF
 Oh Bethlehem, you will go down in history
 CGAm
As a city with no room for its King
 FCGAmF
 While you were sleeping    
 C
While you were sleeping

Oh little town of Jerusalem
Looks like another silent night
The Father gave His only Son
The Way, the Truth, the Life had come
But there was no room for Him in the world He came to save

Jerusalem, what you have missed while you were sleeping
The Savior of the world is dying on your cross today
Jerusalem, you will go down in history
As a city with no room for its King
While you were sleeping
While you were sleeping

United States of America
Looks like another silent night
As we're sung to sleep by philosophies
That save the trees and kill the children
And while we're lying in the dark
There's a shout heard 'cross the eastern sky
For the Bridegroom has returned
And has carried His bride away in the night

America, what will we miss while we are sleeping
Will Jesus come again
And leave us slumbering where we lay
America, will we go down in history
As a nation with no room for its King
Will we be sleeping
Will we be sleeping

United States of America
Looks like another silent night
