O Little Town of Bethlehem Lyrics

O Little Town of Bethlehem lyrics (as most commonly sung):

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

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 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 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 holy Child of Bethlehem
Descend to us, we pray
Cast out our sin 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

Angels We Have Heard On High
Auld Lang Syne
Away In A Manger
Deck The Halls
Go Tell It On The Mountain
God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
Good King Wenceslas
Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day
I Saw Three Ships
In The Bleak Midwinter
It Came Upon The Midnight Clear
Jingle Bells
Jolly Old Saint Nicholas
Joy To The World
O Come All Ye Faithful
O Holy Night
Silent Night
The First Noel
The 12 Days of Christmas
Up On The Housetop
We Three Kings
We Wish You A Merry Christmas
What Child Is This
