They told me love’s sweetest old story,
They told me a wonderful name.
It thrilled all my soul
with it’s glory.
It burned in my heart like a flame.
They told me of One
who so loved me
that in heaven He could not remain.
He came down to seek
and to save me,
Oh tell me His name again.
Oh tell me His name again,
and sing me that sweet old refrain
of Him who in love,
came down from above
to die on the cross of shame.
The story, my heart has stirred,
the sweetest I’ve ever heard.
It banishes fear,
it brings hope and cheer,
Oh, tell me His name again.
When the fullness of time has come,
God sent forth His Son.
Providence had directed the movement of nations
and the tide of human impulse and influence,
until the world was ripe for the coming of a deliverer.
The nations were united under government,
language was widely spoken and was everywhere
recognized as the language of literature.
From all the lands the Jews of the dispersion gathered
to Jerusalem for the annual feast,
and as these returned to place of sojourn,
they can spread throughout the world
the tidings of the Messiah’s coming.
The prophecy of Daniel veiled the time of His advent,
but not all rightly understood the message.
Century after century passed away.
The voices of the prophets ceased.
The hand of oppression was heavy upon Israel,
and many were ready to exclaim [text on screen] But like the stars, and the vast circuit
of their appointed path,
God’s purpose knows no haste and no delay.
So in heaven’s council the hour for the coming of Christ
had been determined,
even the birthplace of the Messiah was foretold
[text on screen] And when the great clock of time pointed to that hour,
Jesus was born in Bethlehem.
Oh Beautiful Star of Bethlehem
Shining afar through shadows dim
Giving a Lamb to those who travel along,
Guiding the wise men on their way
Unto the place where Jesus lay
Oh Beautiful Star of Bethlehem shine on.
Oh Beautiful Star of Bethlehem
Star of Bethlehem
Shine upon us until the glory dawns.
Give us a Lamb to light the way
Unto the land of perfect day
Oh Beautiful Star of Bethlehem, shine on.
Oh Beautiful Star the hope of rest
For the redeemed the good, the blessed
Yonder in glory when the crown is won
Jesus is now the star divine
Brighter and brighter He will shine
Oh Beautiful Star of Bethlehem shine on
Oh Beautiful Star of Bethlehem
Star of Bethlehem
Shine upon us until the glory dawns.
Give us a lamp to light the way
Unto the land of perfect day
Oh Beautiful Star of Bethlehem, shine on.
Oh Beautiful Star of Bethlehem, shine on.
The story of Bethlehem is an exhaustless theme.
In it is hidden [text on screen] We marvel at the Savior’s sacrifice,
in exchanging the throne of heaven for the manger,
and the companionship of adoring angels
for the beasts of the stall.
The King of Glory stooped low to take humanity.
Love was when
God became a man,
locked in time and space
without rank or place.
Love was God born of Jewish kin,
just a carpenter
with some fishermen.
Love was when Jesus walked in history.
Lovingly, He bought
a new life that’s free.
Love was God
nailed to bleed and die,
to reach and love one
such as I.
Love was when
God became a man,
Down where I could see love that reached to me;
Love was God
dying for my sin
And so trapped was I
my whole world caved in.
Love was when
Jesus met me, now it’s real;
Lovingly He came,
I can feel He’s real!
feel He’s real!
Know He’s real,
I know He’s real, He’s real!
Love was God
only He would try,
To reach,
to love,
To reach,
to love, one such as I.
to love, one such as I.

The decree of imperial Rome for the enrollment of the peoples of her vast domain was extended to the dwellers among the hills of Bethlehem. Angels attended Joseph and Mary as they journeyed from their home in Nazareth to the City of David, he is of the lineage of David and the son of David must be born in David’s city.

“Out of Bethlehem” said the prophet [text on screen] But in the city of their royal line, Joseph and Mary are unrecognized and unhonored. Weary, homeless, they traverse the entire link to the narrow streets, from the gate of city to the eastern extremity of the town, vainly seeking a resting place for the night.

There is no room for them at the crowded inn.
