Oh, little town of Bethlehem
Looks like another silent night
Above your deep and dreamless sleep
A giant star lights up the sky

And while youre lying in the dark
There shines an everlasting light
For the King has left His throne
And is sleeping in a manger tonight, tonight

Oh, Bethlehem, what you have missed
While you were sleeping
For God became a man
And stepped into your world today

Oh Bethlehem, you will go down in history
As a city with no room for its King
While you were sleeping
While you were sleeping

Oh, little town of Jerusalem
Looks like another silent night
The Father gave His only Son
The way, the truth, the life had come
But there was no room for Him in the world He came to save

Jerusalem, what you have missed
While you were sleeping?
The Savior of the world
Is dying on your cross today

Jerusalem, you will go down in history
As a city with no room for its King
While you were sleeping
While you were sleeping

United States of America
Looks like another silent night
As were sung to sleep by philosophies
That save the trees and kill the children

And while were lying in the dark
Theres a shout heard cross the eastern sky
For the Bridegroom has returned
And has carried His bride away in the night, in the night

America, what will we miss
While we are sleeping
Will Jesus come again
And leave us slumbering where we lay

America, will we go down in history
As a nation with no room for its King
Will we be sleeping?
Will we be sleeping?

United States of America
Looks like another silent night
