o little town of bethlehem lyrics – jewel

o little town of bethlehem
how still we see the lie
above thy deep and dreamless sleep
the silent stars go by

yet in thy dark streets shineth
the ever lasting light
the hopes and fears of all the years
are met in the tonight

for christ is born of mary
and gathered all above
(gathered all above)
while mortals sleep, the angels keep
their watch of wandering 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
(o holy child of bethlehem)
descend to us, we pray
(descend to us, we pray)
cast out our sin and enter in
(cast out our sin and enter in)
be born in us today

we hear the christmas angels
(we hear the christmas angels)
the great glad tidings tell
(the great glad tidings tell)

o come to us, abide with us
(o come to us, abide with us)
our lord immanuel
(our lord immanuel)
and peace to men on earth
