O Little Town of Bethlehem

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.

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 the earth!Unlabeled
