Anne Murray - It Came Upon A Midnight Clear Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • It came upon the midnight clear,
  • That glorious song of old,
  • From angels bending near the earth
  • To touch their harps of gold.
  • "Peace on the earth, good will to men,
  • From heaven's all-gracious King."
  • The world in solemn stillness lay
  • To hear the angels sing.
  • 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.
  • Yet with the woes of sin and strife
  • The world has suffered long;
  • Beneath the heavenly strain have rolled
  • Two thousand years of wrong.
  • And man, at war with man, hears not
  • The tidings which they bring;
  • O hush the noise, ye men of strife,
  • And hear the angels sing!
  • O 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 prophets 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 give back the song
  • Which now the angels sing...
