Tennessee Ernie Ford – It Came Upon a Midnight Clear

It Came Upon a Midnight Clear

Verse 1

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

Verse 2

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 winds
And ever o'er its Babel sounds
The blessed angels sing

Verse 3

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


[Now the angels sing
[Now the angels sing]
