O Little Town of Bethlehem is a well known Christmas carol written by Phillips Brooks in 1868 with music by Louis Redner.
- 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.
- O morning stars, together
- Proclaim the holy birth!
- And praises sing to God the King,
- And peace to men on earth.
- For Christ is born of Mary,
- And gathered all above,
- While mortals sleep, the angels keep
- Their watch of wondering love.
- 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.
- Where children pure and happy
- Pray to the blessed Child,
- Where misery cries out to thee,
- Son of the mother mild;
- Where charity stands watching
- And faith holds wide the door,
- The dark night wakes, the glory breaks,
- And Christmas comes once more.
- 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 Christmas angels
- The great glad tidings tell;
- O come to us, abide with us,
- Our Lord Emmanuel!
