When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he inquired of them where the Christ was to be born. So they said to him, “In Bethlehem of Judea, for thus it is written by the prophet: ‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, Are not the least among the rulers of Judah; For out of you shall come a Ruler Who will shepherd My people Israel.'” (Matthew 2:3-6)
There in Bethlehem, just as the prophet wrote, was born the Christ. Not only was King Herod troubled, so was all Jerusalem. Such a little baby created such fear in the hearts of men. Who was this child who would rule? We know that in the little town of Bethlehem was born our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.
The words of this beautiful Christmas song describe our Blessed Hope. It is a song of hope about the One who was born..
