• Brandon Heath - O Little Town Of Bethlehem Lyrics

    From the album Christmas Is Here

    O 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 street 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 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

    O holy Child of Bethlehem, descend to us, we pray
    Cast out our sin and enter in, be born in us today

    We hear the Christmas angels, the great glad tidings tell
    Oh, come to us, abide with us, our Lord, Emmanuel
