While You Were Sleeping Chords
      tabbed by michael diaz. I'll tab the first verse and the second and last is the same.


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

  C          G                Am                    F
Oh Bethlehem, what you have missed while you were sleeping
 C                G
For God became a man
             Am             F
And stepped into your world today
C            G             Am         F
Oh Bethlehem, you will go down in history
     C            G             Am
As a city with no room for its King
F                  C G Am F
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

About the artist behind While You Were Sleeping Chords:

Casting Crowns is a Grammy award and Dove Award winning Christian band that employs a soft rock music style. The band was created in 1999 by youth pastor Mark Hall at First Baptist Church in Downtown Daytona Beach, Florida as part of a Youth Group. He also serves as a lead vocalist. Later they moved to McDonough, Georgia and more members joined creating the band now known as Casting Crowns. Some members of the band currently work as ministers for Eagles Landing First Baptist Church in McDonough, Georgia.

Discovered by, among others, contemporary Christian music legend Steven Curtis Chapman, Casting Crowns received a recording contract and vaulted to popularity in 2003 with their self-titled debut album Casting Crowns. The album quickly made them one of the fastest selling debut artists in Christian music history. Lifesong followed in 2005, debuting at #9 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart. Both albums have been certified Platinum. The band's third album The Altar and the Door debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart and #1 on the Hot Christian Albums chart upon its release in August of 2007. Ten weeks after it came out it was certified Gold.

Casting Crowns has enjoyed tremendous success in the United States. They have released eight singles to date, seven of which have become consecutive number one hits on various Christian music charts. "Voice of Truth" spent a record-breaking fourteen consecutive weeks at #1 beginning in 2003. “Lifesong” spent nine weeks in the top spot, with “Praise You In This Storm” remaining at #1 for seven weeks. Casting Crowns broke their own record in 2007 when the single "East To West" from The Altar and the Door hit sixteen consecutive weeks at #1. The song ended up enjoying the top spot for a total of nineteen weeks, now their most successful single to date.
