"O Little Town of Bethlehem" as written by C. Barny Robertson, Phillips Brooks and Lewis H. Redner....
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

Oh 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

Oh morning stars together
Proclaim the holy birth
And praises sing to God the king
And peace to men on earth

The hopes and fears of all the years
Are met in thee tonight
