O little town of Bethlehem
How still we see thee lie
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
The silent stars go by

Yet in the dark streets shineth
The everlasting light
The hopes and fears of all the years
Are met in thee tonight

O holy Child of Bethlehem
Descend onto us, we pray
Cast out our fear and enter in
Be born in us today

We hear the Christmas angels
The great glad tidings tell
Oh, come to us, abide within us
Our Lord Emmanuel

We hear the Christmas angels
The great glad tidings tell
Oh, come to us, abide within us
Our Lord Emmanuel
Our Lord Emmanuel
