O Little Town of Bethlehem

Author: Phillips Brooks (1831-1893) Meter: Appears in 738 hymnals Scripture: Luke 2:1-20 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 wondering love. O morning stars, together proclaim the holy birth, and praises sing to God the King, and peace to all on earth. 3 How silently, how silently, the wondrous Gift is given as love imparts to human hearts the blessings of God's 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. 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 Emmanuel. Topics: Christmas; Epiphany Used With Tune: ST. LOUIS

[Refrain] 3 And by the light of that same star, Three wise men came from country far; To seek for a King was their intent, And to follow the star wherever it went. [Refrain] 4 This star drew nigh to the northwest; O'er Bethlehem it took its rest; And there it did both stop and stay, Right over the place where Jesus lay. [Refrain] 5 Then entered in those wise men three, Full reverently upon the knee, And offered there, in His presence, Their gold, and myrrh, and frankincense. [Refrain] 6 Then let us all with one accord Sing praises to our heavenly Lord; That hath made Heaven and earth of naught, And with His blood our life hath bought.
