Allison Crowe - It Came Upon a Midnight Clear Lyrics

  • It came upon a midnight clear,
  • that glorious song of old,
  • from angels bending near the earth
  • to touch their harps of gold:
  • "Peace on the earth, and good will toward men,
  • from heaven's all-gracious King."
  • The world in solemn stillness lay,
  • to hear the angels sing.
  • lyrics unsung:
  • Still through the cloven skies they come
  • with peaceful wings unfurled,
  • and still their heavenly music floats
  • o'er all the weary world;
  • above its sad and lowly plains,
  • they bend on hovering wing,
  • and ever o'er its Babel sounds
  • the blessed angels sing.
  • And ye, beneath life's crushing load,
  • whose forms are bending low,
  • who toil along the climbing way
  • with painful steps and slow,
  • look now! for glad and golden hours
  • come swiftly on the wing.
  • O rest beside the weary road,
  • and hear the angels sing!
  • For lo! the days are hastening on,
  • by prophet seen of old,
  • when with the ever-circling years
  • shall come the time foretold
  • when peace shall over all the earth
  • its ancient splendors fling,
  • and the whole world send back the song
  • which now the angels sing.
