  1. The Little Town
    Poet: Clinton Scollakd


    O little town, O little town.
    Upon the hills so far,
    We see you, like a thing sublime.
    Across the great gray wastes of time.
    And men go up and men go down,
    But follow still the star!

    And this is humble Bethlehem
    In the Judean wild;
    And this is lowly Bethlehem
    Wherein a mother smiled;
    Yea, this is happy Bethlehem
    That knew the little Child!

    Aye, this is glorious Bethlehem
    Where He drew living breath
    (Ah, precious, precious Bethlehem!
    So every mortal saith)
    Who brought to all that tread the earth
    Life's triumph over death!



  2. When Christ Was Born
    Poet: Florence Earle Coates

    On that divine all-hallowed morn
    When Christ in Bethlehem was born.
    How lone did Mary seem to be,
    The kindly beasts for company!

    But when she saw her infant's face -
    Fair with the soul's unfading grace.
    Softly she wept for love's excess.
    For painless ease and happiness.

    She pressed her treasure to her heart -
    A lowly mother, set apart
    In the dear way that mothers are.
    And heaven seemed high, and earth afar:

    And when grave kings in sumptuous guise
    Adored her babe, she knew them wise;
    For at his touch her sense grew dim -
    So all her being worshipped him.

    A nimbus seemed to crown the head
    Low-nestled in that manger-bed.
    And Mary's forehead, to our sight,
    Wears ever something of its light;

    And still the heart - poor pensioner!
    In its affliction turns to her -
    Best love of all, best understood.
     The type of selfless motherhood!



  3. In Bethlehem that Noble Place
    Poet: Unknown

    In Bethlehem that noble place,
    As by prophecy said it was,
    Of the Virgin Mary full of grace,
    The Savior of the world is born.

    On Christmas night an angel it told
    To the shepherds, keeping their fold,
    That into Bethlehem with beasts wold
    The Savior of the world is born.

    The shepherds were compassed right,
    About them was a great light;
    Dread ye nought, said the angel bright,
    The Savior of the world is born.

    Behold to you we bring great joy;
    For why? Jesus is born this day;
    To us, of Mary, that mild may
    The Savior of the world is born.

    And thus in faith find it ye shall,
    Lying poorly in an ox-stall.
    The shepherds then lauded God all.
    The Savior of the world is born.
