[V1]
 C     F     C
 It came upon the midnight clear,
  F        D7      G7
 That glorious song of old,
C       F      C 
 From angels bending near the earth
F          G7       C
 To touch their harps of gold||
E7                   Am 
 "Peace on the earth, goodwill to men
G       D7          G
 From heav'n's all-gracious King!"
C        F      C  
 The world in solemn stillness lay
F        G7     C
 To hear the angels sing.
 
[V2]
 Still through the cloven skies they come,
 With peaceful wings unfurled;
 And still their heav'nly music floats 
 O'er all the weary world ||
 Above its sad and lowly plains
 They bend on hov-'ring wing,
 And ever o'er its Babel sounds
 The blessed angels sing.
 
[V3]
 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;
 Oh rest beside the weary road
 And hear the angels sing.
 
[V4]
 For lo! the days are hastening on,
 By prophets bards foretold,
 When with the ever-circling years
 Comes round the age of gold. ||
 When peace shall o-ver all the earth
 Its ancient splendors fling,
 And the whole world give back the song
 Which now the angels sing.

 Every high thing must come down

 You wear the Victor's crown
