     G        C        G    C     G                C           A         D 
It came upon a midnight clear, that glorious song of old 
           G         C           G    C      G           C              D            G 
From angels bending near the earth to touch their harps of gold: 
  Bm                                 Em    Bm    Em                D             A7         D 
'Peace on the earth, goodwill      to    men, from heav'n's all-gracious King.' 
         G           C         G    C    G        C            D         G 
The world in solemn stillness lay To hear the angels sing. 
 
     G        C        G    C     G                C           A         D 
Still through the cloven skies they come, with peaceful wings unfurled, 
           G         C           G    C      G           C              D            G 
And still their heavenly music floats O'er all the weary world. 
  Bm                                 Em    Bm    Em                D             A7         D 
Above its sad and lowly plains, they bend on hovering wing; 
         G           C         G    C    G        C            D         G 
And ever o'er its Babel sound the blessed angels sing. 
 
 
     G        C        G    C     G                C           A         D 
And ye, beneath life's crushing load, whose forms are bending low, 
           G         C           G    C      G           C              D            G 
Who toil along the climbing way with painful steps and slow, 
  Bm                                 Em    Bm    Em                D             A7         D 
Look now!  for gad and golden hours come swiftly on the wing. 
         G           C         G    C    G        C            D         G 
O rest beside the weary road, and hear the angels sing. 
 
     G        C        G    C     G                C           A         D 
For lo, the days are hastening on, by prophets seen of old, 
           G         C           G    C      G           C              D            G 
When, with the ever-circling years, shall come the time foretold, 
  Bm                                 Em    Bm    Em                D             A7         D 
When the new heaven and earth shall own The Prince of Peace their King, 
  G           C         G    C    G        C            D         G 
And the whole world send back the song which now the angels sing.
