from Bethlehem

And Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the town of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary, his betrothed, who was with child.
Luke 2:4-5

From Bethlehem came forth
The Ancient of Days
newborn child
cradled in manger hay
Messiah mild
in that little town
of Bethlehem

In Judea's countryside
arrived a Savior
Jesus was born
God's righteous favor
that Christmas morn
in tiny village
of Bethlehem

The city of David
gave a new Prince
the world's King
Who'd go from hence
making the nations sing
born in the town
of Bethlehem

From Bethlehem
was born Jesus
victorious Lord
come to save us
as God's Word
predicted He'd come
from Bethlehem

But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah,
who are too little to be among the clans of Judah,
from you shall come forth for me
one who is to be ruler in Israel,
whose coming forth is from of old,
from ancient days.
Micah 5:2
