O Little Town Of Bethlehem

O Little Town Of Bethlehem (Forest Green, Organ & Trumpet Descant, 4 Verses)

O Little Town Of Bethlehem : 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 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 wondering 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 given!
So God imparts to human hearts
The blessings of His heaven.
No ear may his 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 to us today.
We hear the Christmas angels
The great glad tidings tell:
O come to us, abide with us,
Our Lord Emmanuel.

    All Beautiful The March Of Days : Lyrics 1. All beautiful the march of days, As seasons come and go. The hand that shaped the rose has wrought The crystal of the snow, Has sent the hoary frost of heav’n, The flowing waters sealed, And laid a silent loveliness On hill and wood and field. 2. O’er white expanses, sparkling pure, The radiant morns unfold; The ...
