Sarah McLachlan - O little town of Bethlehem
Tekst: Phillips Brooks / Muziek: Lewis Redner

O little town of Bethlehem
How still we see thee lie
Above the deep
And dreamless sleep
The silent stars go by
Yet, in the dark streets shineth
The everlasting Light
The hopes, the fears
Of all the years
Are met in thee tonight

For Christ is born on Mary
And gathered all above
While mortals sleep
The angels keep
Their watch of wondering love
O morning stars together
Proclaim the holy birth
And praises sing
To God the King
And peace to men on earth

How silently, how silently
The wondrous gift is given
So God imparts
To human hearts
The blessing of His heaven
No ear may hear His coming
But in this world of sin
Where meek souls will
Receive him still
The dear Christ enters in

O holy Child of Bethlehem
Descend to us, we pray
Cast out our sins
And enter in
Be born to us today
We hear the Christmas angels
The great, glad tidings tell
O come to us
Abide with us
Our Lord Emmanuel

O come to us
Abide with us
Our Lord Emmanuel
