times during the laat fifteen centuries,
bnt this Church has been spared and

rank. Pilgrimages bave ben made to
this little city of David by the faith

Who would not have liked to have
spent Christmas morning there and
beard in faith tha song of the angels as
the shepherds it on tbe morning of the
first nativity and worship the Christ,
as the Wise Men did with gifts oi gold,
frankincense and myrrh nearly, two
thousand years ago. . Though small in
population no other city surpasses
uethlehem in interest to the faithful
Christian. On Christmas day all the
faithful eo in spirit "even unto Beth.

O little town of Bethlehem,
How still we see thee lie;
Above the deep end dreamless sleep
The silent stars go by;

The everlasting light;
The bopea and fears rf all the years
