WORDS

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 thy 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
wondering 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 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
recieve 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--
Oh, come to us, abide with us,
Our Lord Immanuel!
