O little town of Bethlehem
Jesus born in you
Proclaimed by ancient servants
God’s Word is heard in you

This little town
No fame was found
Except the Savior
Came quietly at His birth in you

David’s place
Shepherd’s place
Holy place
People flock to see

This place where the Word
Came to man from above
He was here and gone
Now He is alive and lives in you

The shadows come early to Bethlehem
No wealth or worldly seat
Still we go to see the place
Where God came to you and me
