• Matt Redman - O Little Town (The Glory Of Christmas) Lyrics

    From the album These Christmas Lights

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

    And the glory of Christmas
    Is the glory of Christ
    And the glory of Christmas
    Is the story of his love

    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
    O come to us, abide with us
    Our Lord Emmanuel

    How silently, how silently
    The wondrous gift is given
    So God imparts to human hearts
    The blessings 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, Christ be welcomed in
