verse: use short quick strums like the intro throughout
C                 F                  C
o holy night the stars are brightly shining it is the night
       G             C                           F
of our Dear Saviours birth long lay the world in sin and

error pining til He appeared and the soul felt its worth
G                    C                        G
the thrill of hope a weary world rejoices for yonder breaks
  C
a new and glorious morn

Chorus: picked until "o night..." then strum pattern
Am           Em       Dm             Am       C  G    c
Fall on your knees! o hear the angel voices o night divine
F C G                   C
o night when Christ was born

AWESOME job tabbing this song! Here are a few minor corrections i've found..
The last part of the intro should be
-0-0-0- instead -0-0-0-
-0-0-0- of -0-0-0-
-2-2-2- -0-0-0-

When you hit that Am during the "angel voices" part of the chorus, there's a walk to the C for "night" (Am - B - C), so the tab would be
Am (B) C
------------------
------1-----1--1--
------2-----0--0--
----2-----0----2--
--0-----2------3--
------------------

Also, i think the chord for "divine" in the chorus is an Am instead of a C

The second verse's chords are
C F C
C C G Am (B) -- same walk as above
C F C
Em B7 Em
G C G C

Great job again for the tab. This is definitely my favorite version of this song i've ever heard. It's sung with emotion and the music dynamics are awesome! God bless!
