lyrics

It came upon a midnight clear

D
O ye beneath life’s crushing load,
D D/C D/B
Whose forms are bending low,
D
Who toil along the climbing way
D C D
With painful steps and slow;

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

Bm F#m
“Peace on the earth, goodwill to men
Bm Bm/A Gsus
From heavens all gracious King!”
D
The world in solemn stillness lay
D C D
To hear the angels sing.


For lo! the days are hastening on,
By prophets seen of old,
When with the ever-circlin’ 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.
