So fair to be seen. Read More…

O Little Town of Bethlehem song lyrics

Song lyrics to O Little Town of Bethlehem written by Phillip Brooks in 1867, inspired by his horseback journey from Jerusalem to Bethlehem on Christmas Eve 2 years earlier—”I re­mem­ber stand­ing in the old church in Beth­le­hem, close to the spot where Je­sus was born, when the whole church was ring­ing hour after hour with splen­did hymns of praise to God, how again and again it seemed as if I could hear voic­es I knew well, tell­ing each other of the Won­der­ful Night of the Sav­ior’s birth.” Music was composed by Lewis H. Red­ner, (1868) Brooks’ or­gan­ist. The tune came to him on Christ­mas Eve, and was first sung the next day. Read More…
