O LITTLE TOWN OF BETHLEHEM
[G] O little town of [C] Bethle[Am]hem,
How [G] still we [D] see thee [G] lie;
[G] Above thy deep and [C] dreamless [Am] sleep,
The [G] silent [D] stars go [G] by.
[G] Yet in thy dark streets [Bm] shineth
The [C] everlasting [G] light;
[G] The hopes and fears of [C] all the [Am] years
Are [G] met in [D] thee to[G]night.
For Christ is born of Mary,
And gather'd 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 men on earth.
O holy Child of Bethlehem!
Descend to us we pray;
Cast out our sin and enter in,
Be born in us today.
We hear the Christmas angels
The great glad tidings tell;
O come to us, abide with us,
Our Lord Emmanuel!
