Lyrics for O Little Town of Bethlehem:

 

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

 

For Christ is born of Mary
And gathered all above
While mortals sleep, the angels keep
Their watch of wondering love

 

O morning stars together
Proclaim the holy birth
And praises sing to God the King
And Peace to men on earth

 

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 His coming
But in this world of sin
Where meek souls will receive Him still
Dear Christ enters in

 

O holy Child of Bethlehem
Descend to us, we pray
Cast out our sins and enter in
Be born to us today

 

We hear the Christmas angels
The great glad tidings tell
O come to us, abide with us
Our Lord Emmanuel
O come to us, abide with us
Our Lord Emmanuel
