City of a Silent Night (Matthew 2:6)


Bethlehem,
city of a silent night,
wise men watch the star
above you
and wonder.

David's city
in land of Judah,
you were never the least
among your brothers.
You were chosen
to be the birthplace
of God's own son.

Bethlehem,
city of a holy night,
do not slumber
in your contentment
and miss the infant's cry.
