O little town of Bethlehem

Author: Bp. Phillips Brooks, 1835-1893 Hymnal: Methodist Hymn and Tune Book #126 (1917) Topics: Bethlehem Christ born in 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 to-night. 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 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 to-day, We hear the heavenly angels The great glad tidings tell; O come to us, abide with us, Our Lord, Immanuel.

If I Could Visit Bethlehem

Author: Brian Wren Hymnal: Worship and Song #3063 (2011) Meter: 8.6.8.6 D Topics: Bethlehem; Bethlehem Lyrics: 1 If I could visit Bethlehem what presents would I bring? If I could see what happened then, what would I say or sing? I wouldn't take a modern toy but gold to pay for bread, some whine to give his parents joy and wool to warm his bed. 2 I'd learn some simple words to speak in Aramaic tongues. I'd cradle him, and kiss his cheek, and say, "I'm glad you've come." If Mary asked me who I was and what her child would do: I wouldn't talk about the cross or tell he all I knew. 3 I'd say, "He'll never hurt or kill, and joy will follow tears. We'll know his name and love him still in twenty hundred years." I cannot visit Bethlehem but what I can, I'll do: I'll love you, Jesus, as my friend, and give my life to you. Scripture: Psalm 30:3 Languages: English Tune Title: CAROL STREAM

How Far It Was to Bethlehem

Author: Mary Nelson Keithahn Hymnal: Faith That Lets Us Sing #42 (2017) Topics: Christmas Journey to Bethlehem Lyrics: 1 How far it was to Bethlehem for Mary, great with child, and Joseph, trusted with the one upon whom God had smiled! From Nazareth to Jericho, then up a long, steep road, they journeyed on to David’s town with their most precious load. 2 They could not find a place to stay save in a stable stall, and there amid the animals was born the Lord of all. The heavens burst with angel-song to shepherds on the hill: “The Christ is born and peace will come to people of good will.” 3 The shepherds hurried off to find this new-born baby boy. “The Promised One is here, at last! Our hearts are filled with joy!” They knelt before his manger bed, and gazed upon the face that showed in its sweet countenance Love’s gift of peace and grace. 4 How far it is to Bethlehem for us who live today, who bear the burdens of our doubts and do not trust Love’s way. God, as we journey on in life, let angel-songs ne’er cease, that, like the shepherds, we may find in Christ a hope for peace. Scripture: Luke 2:4-5 Languages: English Tune Title: JERICHO ROAD
