Ella Fitzgerald – O Little Town Of Bethlehem lyrics

Oh, 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 mortal sleep, the angels keep
Their watch of wondering love

Oh, morning stars, together
Proclaim the holy birth
And praises sing to God, the King
And peace to men on earth
