"Bethlehem" as written by Errol Blackwood, Earl Smith, Paul Edmonds, Lloyd James and Christopher Meredith....
All my life I've waited and watched through the eyes of faith
to see the consolation of Israel
And even though the flame of my life is now growing dim,
I know I'll see the Savior of Israel
For the Spirit of the Lord has promised unto me
that I would not see death before my eyes have seen Him
The promise is alive, for through this little child,
God's holy light illuminates Jerusalem

This child will cause the falling and rising of many souls
A sign for all the people of Israel
This child will be the way and the life unto every soul
To every generation shall the Gentiles tell
For the way has been prepared in the sight of every man
The Son of God Himself is born in Bethlehem
A sacrifice is made in the temple on this day
Redemption reaches far beyond Jerusalem

O Bethlehem, your star burns bright tonight,
for my eyes have seen the glory of salvation's holy light
Has this little child come to redeem us all?
To save us from the fall?
Redemption is in sight
Behold, the Son shines bright
under Bethlehem's star tonight

O Bethlehem, your star burns bright tonight,
for my eyes have seen the glory of salvation's holy light
Has this little child come to redeem us all?
To save us from the fall?
Redemption is in sight
Behold, the Son shines bright
In Bethlehem tonight
In Bethlehem tonight
In Bethlehem tonight
In Bethlehem tonight

When all the world was sleeping deep in darkness
a child in Bethlehem fulfilled the promise
The ancients prophesied a great deliverer
The one to break the curse of sin forever
He didn't come with any worldly fanfare
No royal treatment, just a dark cross to bear
In Bethlehem a brand-new dawn is rising
A star to guide the way, forever shining
New hope was born for all creation that night
For through the darkness came the brightest light
For through the darkness came the brightest light

    For the Spirit of the Lord has promised unto me
    that I would not see death before my eyes have seen Him.
    The promise is alive, for through this little child,

    This child will cause the falling and rising of many souls
    A sign for all the people of Israel
    This child will be the way and the life unto every soul
    To every generation shall the Gentiles tell.

    For the way has been prepared in the sight of every man
    The Son of God Himself is born in Bethlehem.
