O Little Town of Bethlehem



O little town of Bethlehem,
How still we see thee lie;
Above they deep and dreamless sleep
The silent stars go by.
Yet in they 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!

Words by Phillips Brooks 1835-1893

Thank you.

This photo is rich. I've never seen Bethlehem from this angle, and I just learned the sign-language word for it. The town literally LOOKS like the sign-language word!

That's neat!  I love how sign language is so visual!

Rachel Lundy said...

I do too!

It never grows old.  I like this song more every year!
