O Little Town Of Bethlehem

Lewis H. Redner /Phillips Brooks



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

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

3. How silently, how silently
   The wondrous gift is giv!
   So God imparts to human hearts
   The blessings of His heav.
   No ear may hear His coming,
   But in this world of sin,
   Where meek souls will receive Him, still,
   The dear Christ enters in.

4. 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 Immanuel!
