Author: Louis FitzGerald Benson, 1899
Scripture: Luke 2:8-15
Theme: Jesus Christ
1. O sing a song of Bethlehem, Of shepherds watching there, And of the news that came to them From angels in the air: The light that shone on Bethlehem Fills all the world today; Of Jesus' birth and peace on earth The angels sing alway. 2. O sing a song of Nazareth, Of sunny days of joy, O sing of fragrant flowers' breath, And of the sinless Boy: For now the flowers of Nazareth In every heart may grow; Now spreads the fame of His dear name On all the winds that blow. 3. O sing a song of Galilee, Of lake and woods and hill, Of Him who walked upon the sea And bade its waves be still: For though, like waves on Galilee, Dark seas of trouble roll, When faith has heard the Master's word, Falls peace upon the soul. 4. O sing a song of Calvary, Its glory and dismay; Of Him who hung upon the tree, And took our sins away: For He who died on Calvary Is risen from the grave, And Christ, our Lord, by heaven adored, Is mighty now to save.
