"O LITTLE TOWN OF BETHLEHEM"

Verse 1
O little town of Bethlehem,
How still we see you lie!
Above your deep and dreamless sleep
The silent stars go by;
Yet in your dark streets shines
[Oh, there shines]
The everlasting li-ight,
The hopes and fears of all the years
Are met in you tonight.

Ooh, ooh, ooh ooh, ahh ahh, ahh
ooh, ooh, ooh ooh

Verse 2
Oh, how silently, how silently
The wonderful gift is given!
So God imparts to human hearts
The love that comes from Heaven [from Heaven].
No ear may hear His coming,
But in this world of sin
Where meek souls will receive Him still
Dear Jesus enters in-n.
Woh-oh woh oh,

Verse 3
O holy Child of Bethlehem,
Come down to us, we pra-ay;
Forgive our sin and enter in,
Be born in us today.
We hear the Christmas angels
Proclaim your happy bir-rth;
Now come to us, and live in us,
And bring us peace,
[And bring us peace] [Jesus, enter in]
And bring us peace o-on earth!
[Bring us peace on earth!]
