John Mcdermott - O Little Town Of Bethleham Lyrics

  • 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 ever lasting 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 wond'ring love.
  • O 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 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.
  • O holy child of bethlehem,
  • Descend to us, we pray;
  • Cast out our sin, and enter in,
  • Be born in us today.
  • We heard the christmas angels
  • The great glad tidings tell;
  • O come to us, abide with us,
  • Our lord emmanuel.
