Bethlehem Tonight Christmas Song

Bethlehem Tonight

Year: 1998

Written By: Brian McKnight

'Bethlehem Tonight' appeared on R&B singer Brian McKnight's first Christmas album 'Bethlehem', which featured contributions from amongst others Boyz II Men. 'Bethlehem Tonight' is as smooth as McKnight gets, appearing immaculately produced with lyrics recalling that famous night over 2000 years ago. While R&B hasn't produced many Christmas classics McKnight's love of the season surely marks him out as the one that may just change all that.

 

Bethlehem Tonight Lyrics

Virgin mary was laden with child
The prophecy had been foretold
The one who had come to save our lives
Was born in the manger so low
And as sure as the stars are in the sky
Valleys low and mountains high
The newborn king was born
In bethlehem tonight

Silent night, holy night
Bethlehem tonight
Silent night, holy night


Three kings brought gifts from far away
A boy came to play upon his drum
Skeptics saw truth and had nothing to say
The wonderful savior had come
And as sure as the stars are in the sky
Valleys low and mountains high
The newborn king was born
In bethlehem tonight

Silent night, holy night
Bethlehem tonight
Silent night, holy night


Behold our redeemer from sin
There was no room in the inn
But still he left his throne on high
Shed his blood
To saved our lives, our lives
In bethlehem tonight


Repeat out:
Silent night, holy night
Silent night, holy night
