O Little Town of Bethlehem

Author: Phillips Brooks Meter: D irregular Appears in 709 hymnals Scripture: Job 38:7 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 all 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 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: Biblical Characters Mary Used With Tune: ST. LOUIS

Songs of Praise the Angels Sang

Author: James Montgomery (1771-1854) Meter: Appears in 502 hymnals Scripture: Job 38:1-41 Lyrics: 1 Songs of praise the angels sang, heaven with alleluias rang when creation was begun, when God spoke and it was done. 2 Songs of praise awoke the morn when the Prince of Peace was born; songs of praise arose when he captive led captivity. 3 Heaven and earth must pass away, songs of praise shall crown that day; God will make new heavens and earth; songs of praise shall hail their birth. 4 And shall Christians fail to sing till on earth Christ come as King? No, the church delights to raise psalms and hymns and songs of praise. 5 Saints below, with heart and voice, still in songs of praise rejoice; learning here, by faith and love, songs of praise to sing above. 6 Hymns of glory, songs of praise, Father, unto you we raise. Jesus, Saviour, living Word, with the Spirit be adored. Topics: Angels; Arts and Music; Gathering of the Community; Praise of God Used With Tune: CULBACH

Melt the clouds of sin and sadness, Drive the dark of doubt away; Giver of immortal gladness, Fill us with the light of day. 2 All Thy works with joy surround Thee, Earth and heaven reflect Thy rays, Stars and angels sing around Thee, Center of unbroken praise. Field and forest, vale and mountain, Flowery meadow, flashing sea, Chanting bird and flowing fountain, Call us to rejoice in Thee. 3 Thou art giving and forgiving, Ever blessing, ever blest, Well-spring of the joy of living, Ocean depth of happy rest! Thou our Father, Christ our Brother, All who live in love are Thine; Teach us how to love each other, Lift us to the Joy divine. 4 Mortals, join the happy chorus Which the morning stars began; Father love is reigning o'er us, Brother love binds man to man. Ever singing, march we onward, Victors in the midst of strife, Joyful music leads us Sun-ward In the triumph song of life. Amen.

Brightest and Best of the Stars of the Morning

Author: Reginald Heber Meter: Appears in 822 hymnals Scripture: Job 38:7 Lyrics: 1 Brightest and best of the stars of the morning, Dawn on our darkness and lend us thine aid; Star of the east, the horizon adorning, Guide where our infant Redeemer is laid. 2 Cold on His cradle the dewdrops are shining, Low lies His head with the beasts of the stall; Angels adore Him in slumber reclining, Maker and Monarch and Savior of all! 3 Shall we then yield Him, in costly devotion, Odors of Edom and offerings divine. Gems of the mountain and pearls of the ocean, Myrrh from the forest, or gold from the mine? 4 Vainly we offer each ample oblation, Vainly with gifts would His favor secure; Richer by far is the heart’s adoration, Dearer to God are the prayers of the poor.

Stars of the Morning, so Gloriously Bright

Author: John M. Neale; St. Joseph the Hymnographer. d. 883 Meter: Appears in 62 hymnals Scripture: Job 38:7 Lyrics: 1 Stars of the morning, so gloriously bright, Filled with celestial resplendence and light, These that, where night never followeth day, Praise the Thrice Holy One ever and aye. 2 These are Thy ministers, these dost Thou own, Lord God of Sabaoth, nearest Thy throne; These are Thy messengers, these dost Thou send, Help of the helpless ones, man to defend. 3 Then, when the earth was first poised in mid space, Then, when the planets first sped on their race, Then, when were ended the six days' employ, Then all the sons of God shouted for joy. 4 Still let them succor us, still let them fight, Lord of angelic hosts, battling for right, Till, where their anthems they ceaselessly pour, We with the angels may bow and adore. Amen. Topics: The Church Year St. Michael and All Angels Used With Tune: O QUANTA QUALIA
