Lyrics:

  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 wond’ring 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’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, still
    The dear Christ enters in.
