Peace on earth

It came upon the midnight clear
glorious song, song of old
Angels bending near the earth
to touch their harps of gold

Still through the cloven skies they come
with peacful wings, wings unfurled
Still their heavenly music floats
o'er all the weary world

Peace on earth, goodwill to men
from heaven's all gracious king
The world in solemn stilness lay
to hear the angels sing

Yet with the woes of sin and strife
world has suffered long, too long
Beneath the heavenly strain have rolled
two thousand years of wrong

And man, at war wit man, hears not
tidings which they bring to us
Hush the noise and cease your strife
and hear the angels sing
