: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.
 
 
 
: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 wondring love'.
 
 
 
: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, stil the dear Christ enters in.
