It Came Upon A Midnight Clear
written by Edmund H. Sears, Richard S. Willis
and Jack Schroeder

C       F      C           
It came upon a 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 good will to men
     G7       D7           G7  
From heaven's all gracious King
    C        F      C           
The world in solemn stillness lay
   F        G7     C
To hear the angels sing

              F          C
Still through the cloven skies they come
     F        D7      G7
With peaceful wings unfurled
    C     F              C   
And still their heavenly music floats
     F       G7    C
Over all the weary world

      E7          Am
Above its sad and lowly plains
     G7      D7       G7 
They bend on hovering wing
    C         F         C
And ever over its Babel sounds
    F       G7     C 
The blessed angels sing

       F            C
O ye beneath life's crushing load
      F         D7      G7  
Whose forms are bending low
    C     F        C 
Who toil along the climbing way
     F       G7        C
With painful steps and slow

     E7               Am
Look now for glad and golden hours
     G7      D7     G7      
Come swiftly on the wing
  C      F        C
O rest beside the weary road
    F        G7     C
And hear the angels sing
