Yolanda Adams – O Little Town Of Behtlehem lyrics

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 Bethlehem
Little town Bethlehem

For Christ is born of Mary
And gathered all above
While mortals sleep, the angels keep
Their watch of wondering love

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

On earth, peace on earth to all men
Bethlehem, you bring peace to all men
For this day is born the King
In Bethlehem

O Bethlehem
Little town of Bethlehem

O Bethlehem, little town of Bethlehem
Silently, wondrously
You speak peace to all men

Silently, wondrously
You speak peace to all men
Bethlehem, Bethlehem, Bethlehem

They will know of your fame
For your name will be synonymous
With the birth of the King
O Bethlehem, Bethlehem

Bethlehem, Bethlehem
Bethlehem, Bethlehem

God, He loves you
Bethlehem, for this day is born unto
O Bethlehem
