Brian doerksen - It came upon the midnight clear

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 heaven's all gracious King!
The world in solemn stillness lay
To hear the angels sing

And 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
And rest beside the weary road
And 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
And man at war with man hears not
The love-song which they bring
O hush the noise, ye men of strife
And hear the angels sing

For lo, the days are hastening on
By prophets seen of old
When with the ever circling years
Shall come the time foretold
When peace shall over all the earth
Its ancient splendors fling
And the whole world send back the song
Which now the angels sing
