Bethlehem

 

Bethlehem
By Tom D Blakely

In a town so long ago
Christ was born on earth to show
That there is a God above
Who is sovereign, who is love.
Though He hates our every sin
In good will our God has given
Jesus Christ, His only Son
That we might find peace through Him.

On a chilly winter’s night
Underneath the starry light,
Lay the babe our heavenly King
In a manger by the inn.
He who made this marvellous earth
Chose a strangely humble birth,
For no worldly gain He sought
Living always as He taught.

Thank You Lord for Bethlehem
Where our Saviour Christ was born.
Born the richest of us all
In a dirty cattle stall.
Help us Lord to be like Him
Bringing glory to Your name.
Loving all except our sins
Loving You above all things.
