TEXT

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, goodwill to men,
From heav'n'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 unfurl'd,
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.

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 the glad and golden hours
Come swiftly on the wing,
Oh rest beside the weary road
And hear the angels sing.
