1. "In Bethlehem," the Angels sang, "The Bread of Life is Born, Who comes to capture sin and death, Who gives His Life for yours." 2. "In Bethlehem, in manger bed, Where beasts have lately fed, The Ruler of creation lays, Whose Flesh He gives as Bread!" 3. To Bethlehem, that House of Bread, The Shepherds did make haste, And found the manger, swaddled Babe, Who nuzzled Mary's breast. 4. In Bethlehem, King David's town, The great sign was beheld: The Virgin pure had borne a Son, She called Immanuel. 5. From Bethlehem, the martyrs' home, The Lord of Life will flee. For Herod comes with sword in hand And seeks the newborn King. 6. O Bethlehem, of great renown, Where Rachael was laid down, From you, of patriarchs and kings, Comes David's Son, your Crown! 7. For Bethlehem, Oh Praise the Lord Who comes to set us free. Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, The Blessed Trinity!
