It Came upon the Midnight Clear


ADA
It came upon the midnight clear
DE
That glorious song of old
ADA
From angels bending near the earth
DEA
To touch their harps of gold:

C#F#m
"Peace on the earth, good will to men,
EBE
From heav'ns all gracious King."
ADA
The world in solemn stillness lay
DEA
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 hov'ring wing,
And every o'er its Babel sounds
The blessed angels sing

For lo, the days are hastening on,
By prophet bards foretold,
When with the ever-circling years
Comes round the age of gold;

When peace shall over all the earth
Its ancient splendors fling,
And the whole world give back the song
Which now the angels sing.
