    While You Were Sleeping

    Casting Crowns

    Oh little town of Bethlehem
    Looks like another silent night
    Above your deep and dreamless sleep
    A giant star lights up the sky
    And while you're lying in the dark
    There shines an everlasting light
    For the King has left His throne
    And is sleeping in a manger tonight, tonight

    Oh Bethlehem, what you have missed while you were sleeping
    For God became a man
    And stepped into your world today
    Oh Bethlehem, you will go down in history
    As a city with no room for its King
    While you were sleeping
    While you were sleeping

    Mary shivers in the cold
    Trying to keep the Savior warm
    Born among the animals wrapped in dirty rags
    Because there was no room for Him in the world He came to save

    United States of America
    Looks like another silent night
    As we're sung to sleep by philosophies
    That save the trees and kill the children
    And while we're lying in the dark
    There's a shout heard 'cross the eastern sky
    For the Bridegroom has returned
    And has carried His bride away in the night

    America, what will we miss while we are sleeping
    Will Jesus come again
    And leave us slumbering where we lay
    America, will we go down in history
    As a nation with no room for its King
    Will we be sleeping
    Will we be sleeping

    United States of America
    Looks like another silent night
