lyrics

Oh, little town of Bethlehem
How still we see thee lie
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
The silent stars go by
Yet in thy dark streets shineth
The everlasting light
The hopes and fears of all the years
Are met in thee tonight.

For Christ is born of Mary
And gathered all above
While mortals sleep, the angels keep
Their watch of wondering love
Oh, morning stars together
Proclaim thy holy birth
And praises sing to God the King
And peace to men on earth.

How silently, how silently
The wonderous gift is given
So God imparts to human hearts
The blessings of His heaven
No ear may hear His coming
But in this world of sin
When meek souls will receive Him still
The dear Christ enters in.

Oh, holy child of Bethlehem
Descend to us we pray
Cast out our sin and enter in
Be born to us today
We hear the Christmas angels
The great glad tidings tell
Oh come to us, abide in us
Our Lord, Emmanuel
