Cantor: I bring you news of great joy, Today a Saviour is born. He is Christ the Lord. Alleluia! Gifts: O Little town of Bethlehem 1. 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. 2. O sad and troubled Bethlehem we hear your longing cry For peace and justice to be born and cruel oppression die. How deep your need for that great gift of love in human form, Let Christ in you be seen again and hearts by hope made warm. 3. While morning stars and evening stars shine out in your dark sky, despair now stalks your troubled streets where innocents still die. And Jesus child of Mary, whose love will never cease, Feels even now your pain and fear, longs with you for your peace. 4. Amazingly and lovingly Jesus, the child has come and brought to birth through human pain, makes broken hearts his home. He comes to comfort all who weep, to challenge every wrong And living with the weak and poor, becomes their hope, their song.
