In Bethlehem, O Bethlehem
what sights you must have seen
with manger bed where sheep had fed
and yonder pastures green.
A Savior came, O Bethlehem
the One whom prophets foretold
yet most were blind, they could not find
The God-man soft, yet bold.
Yet Shepherds came, Oh Bethlehem
the unclean keepers of the sheep.
A song they heard, they spread the word
while Jesus was fast asleep.
O Bethlehem, O Bethlehem
His name is ever true!
To all who hear, He drives out fear
Salvation comes to you!
S.E. Strissel ’13’
