O Little Town of Bethlehem

(Phillips Brooks, Lewis H. Redner)

      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 giv’n;
      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.
