Oh little town of Bethlehem How still we see the Lie
Above the deep and dreamless sleep
The silent starts go by
Yet in the dark street shineth the everlasting Light
All hopes and fears of all the years are met in thee

Verse 1
All the hurt and pain
Turns to strength and Gain
Peace & Freedom to mankind who believes

All Israael's defeat
Is now eternal victory
For Emmanuel is come to bring us Peace

And oh for grace to know the savior is born In the city of David


Verse 2
All my silent tears
Curses bound through the years
Generations made free by your gift left here

I can lay all my shame
On the precious gift that came
Since the 1st Noel ur power has never changed

Let the merciful God
Shine in truth and Love
In a manger & now heart to change my life and oh for grace to know the savior is come in the city of David!

Oh little town of Bethlem Oh
All of our Hopes
And all of our fears

Meets Grace to nite beneath the star so bright

Meets the gift of Love Eternally sent for us

Meets The Holy Light In whom all things are Made Right

Meets grace tonite Wrapped up in the gift Called Christ

What a gift to us Grace

(In Bethlehem you choose to show the world)
Grace, Lord you brought grace where would I be if it wasn't for grace
