  O Little Town of Bethlehem
Lyrics

O 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.

 

O morning stars, together
proclaim the holy birth
and praises sing to God the King
and peace to men on earth.
For Christ is born of Mary
and, gathered all above
while mortals sleep, the angels keep
their watch of wondering love.

 

How silently, how silently,
the wondrous 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,
where meek souls will receive Him,
still the dear Christ enters in.

 

O holy child of Bethlehem,
descend to us, we pray
cast out our sin, and enter in,
be born in us today.
We hear the Christmas angels,
the great glad tidings tell
O come to us, abide with us,
our Lord Emmanuel!
