While You Were Sleeping  Casting Crowns

      O[C]h little t[G]own of [Am]Bethlehem
Looks like anot[F]her silent n[C]igh[G]t [Am]   [F]
[C]Above your [G]deep and dreamless [Am]sleep
A giant s[F]tar lights up the s[C]ky[G]  [Am]   [F]
An[C]d while you're ly[G]ing in the d[Am]ark
There sh[F]ines an everlasting lig[C]ht[G]  [Am]   [F]
[C]For the [G]King has left His th[Am]rone
And is s[F]leeping in a manger t[C]on[G]ig[Am]ht [F]

Oh[C] Bethlehem,[G] what you have mi[Am]ssed while you were sl[F]eeping
F[C]or God became a m[G]an
And stepped i[Am]nto your world [F]today
[C]Oh Bethlehem,[G] you will go d[Am]own in hist[F]ory
As a [C]city with no [G]room for its K[Am]ing
[F]While you were slee[C]pi[G]ng[Am]   [F]
While you were slee[C]ping

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
