TEXT

O little town of Bethlehem,
How still we see the lie.
Above thy deep and dreemless 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

For Christ is born of Mary,
And, gathered all above
Whie mortals sleep, the angels keep
Their watch of wond'ring love.
O morning stars, together
Proclain the holy birth,
And praises sing to God and King,
And peace to men on earth.

How silently, how silently
The wondrousgift is giv'n!
So God imparts to human hearts
The blessings of his heav'n.
No ear may hear his coming;
But in this world of sin,
Where meek souls will receive him,
The dear Christ enters in.
