NUMBER:7770
AUTHOR:Phillips Brooks (1835–1893)
QUOTATION: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 to-night.
ATTRIBUTION:O little Town of Bethlehem.
