Who is the author?
In Bethlehem the streets were dim as shadows fell
But God lit a star and heaven smiled
And there was light around the Child
Come let our candles shine...
Lest men forget.
I memorized that in the sixties, but now my memory isn't as good. I wonder if there are any mistakes in the way I remember it. Does anyone know that poem and who wrote it?
Do you think it could be William Allen Knight - On the way to Bethlehem?

This very much sounds similar to William Allen Knight's prose, as olga said.
I searched the two texts below but didn't find the exact phrases. However, I thought I'd share what I found
William Allen Knight
On The Way To Bethlehem
The Signs in the Christmas Fire
Great links, Chantelle! I'm thinking that the poem I learned wasn't that old.
never knew this before. :)
