VERSE 01: Oh, Bethlehem! Blest are thy walls/And sweet thy sacred name/From thy rude stall to save the world/The great Redeemer came,/On all thy hills in glory beam’d/The bright and morning star,/And to thy gates on bended knee/Came sages from afar.
VERSE 02: Great is thy glory, wide thy fame,/Thy name’s in all the earth,/To sinful man its lightest sound/Proclaims a Savior’s birth/Each recess of thy hallow’d hills/Each nook thy rocks among,/Gives back to us an echo of/A rescued sinners song.
VERSE 03: Joy to the world from thee has come/None greater e’er was known/It lifts from sin the sorrowing/Close to Jehovah’s throne in peace abides each mortal here/Whose lips atune thy praise./Blest city of the Saviors birth./Thy name we love always.
CHORUS: O Bethlehem!/O Bethlehem! Blest to be thy sacred name/From thy rude stall to save the world/The great Redeemer came.
