Oh little town of Bethlehem 
How still we see thee lie
 Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
The silent stars go by

Yet in they 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

Oh 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 coming 
But in this world of sin
 Where meek souls will receive Him still 
The dear Christ enters in

Oh 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 Emanuel
