It Came Upon A Midnight Clear

Song Author Traditional Lyrics by: Traditional Performer: Christmas Submitted by: noah197
It [G]came up[C/G]on a     [G]midnight clear
That [C]glorious [A7/C#]song of [Dsus4]old       [D]    
From [G]angels [C/G]bending [G]near the earth
To [Am7]touch their [D7]harps of [G]gold
"Peace [B7]on the earth, good [Em]will to men
From [Asus4]heaven's all [A7]gracious [D]King;" [C/D]    
The [G]world in [C/G]solemn [G]stillness [Em]lay,   
To [Am7]hear the [D7]angels [G]sing

Still [G]through the [C/G]cloven [G]skies they come
With [C]peaceful [A7/C#]wings un[Dsus4]furled, [D]    
And [G]still their [C/G]heavenly [G]music floats
O'er [Am7]all the [D7]weary [G]world
A[B7]bove its sad and [Em]lowly plains
They [Asus4]bend on [A7]hovering [D]wing; [C/D]    
And [G]ever [C/G]o'er its [G]Babel [Em]sounds
The [Am7]blessed [D7]angels [G]sing.

O [G]ye, be[C/G]neath [G]life's crushing load
Whose [C]forms are [A7/C#]bending [Dsus4]low,       [D]    
Who [G]toil a[C/G]long the [G]climbing way
With [Am7]painful [D7]steps and [G]slow
Look [B7]now! for glad and [Em]golden hours
Come [Asus4]swiftly [A7]on the [D]wing; [C/D]    
O [G]rest be[C/G]side the [G]weary [Em]road   
And [Am7]hear the [D7]angels [G]sing

It came upon a 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.

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
