O little town of Bethlehem

BethlehemO 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.

Philip Brooks – O little town of Bethlehem

† In Memoriam.

For the souls of the faithful departed especially,    . . . .

together with all those we love and see no longer.

Rest eternal grant to them O Lord
            and let light perpetual shine upon them.
