But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be
little among the thousands of Judah, yet out
of thee he shall come forth unto me that is
to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth
have been from old, from everlasting
Micah 5:2


Oh Little Town Of Bethlehem 1957
Written by Phillips Brooks and Lewis H. Redner in 1868

Recorded by Elvis September 7, 1957

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.

For Christ is born of Mary, and gathered all above,
While mortals sleep, the angels keep their watch of wond’ring love.
O morning stars, together proclaim the holy birth,
And praises sing to God the King, and peace to men on earth!

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.



[1868] Lewis H. Redner was the organist at Holy Trinity Church.
The tune Oh Little Town Of Bethlehem came to him on Christmas Eve,
and was first sung the next day.

Redner worked in the real estate business in Philadelphia,
and also played the organ at four different churches during his life.
He spent the longest time (19 years) at Holy Trinity Church,
where he also helped greatly expand the Sunday School program.
