It Came Upon a Midnight Clear
Frank Sinatra Lyrics

It came upon the midnight clear
That glorious song of old
From Angels playing near the earth
To touch their harps of gold

Peace on the earth could will two men
From Heaven's all-gracious King
The world in solemn stillness lay
To hear the Angels sing
And I hear them singing
Sing, I do hear them singing

The first Noel the Angel did say
Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay
In fields where they lay, they keeping their sheep
On a cold winter's night that was so deep

I'm so grateful for this great Sinatra Christmas album, it's making me really feel like it's Christmas, which has been rather difficult to do this year. But I have my pets with me in these isolated times, my fireplace is crackling and soon I will make myself a hot toddy and watch the day turn into night and call it a day. I wish everyone out there a happy and healthy Christmas, stay warm and healthy and next year will be better. Happy holidays to all of you out there, who are listening to this beautiful album. Merry Christmas!


Well said :) Merry Christmas 2021 to you and your pets! And I pray 2022 will be your best year ever.

Was thinking about my 99 year old mom who died last week and was buried, today. She loved Frank Sinatra and got to see him a few times at the Paramount in NYC, long ago. Love you, mom! See you again, someday!💔

It's always very difficult to lose a parent, James, but your mother had a long life and I'm sure you were a big part of the reason for that!

I’m so sorry for it. Be happy and know that your mom is watching you.

A Jolly Christmas is one of Sinatra's Best Christmas Albums 57

James Marshall

Frank's Capitol Christmas album is indispensable.

Whenever I hear the name Frank or listen to Frank Sinatra's music, I think of my co worker Frank.
