How Far Is It to Bethlehem? is a setting of a poem by Frances Chesterton (1975-1938), the wife of noted English author, G.K. Chesterton. Also known by the title, Children's Song of the Nativity, the poem tells of curious children seeking the baby Jesus. When they find him, they realize that all they have to give him are their "little smiles and little tears." Sweet and sincere, this anthem is a lovely choice for the season of Christmas.
