Christmas Carols - It Came Upon A Midnight Clear Lyrics

  • 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
  • Over all the weary world
  • Above its sad and lowly plains
  • They bend on hovering wing
  • And ever over 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
