It Came Upon A Midnight Clear
University of Delaware Deltones Lyrics


It came upon, it came upon
It came upon, it came upon
It came upon, it came upon

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

It came upon, it came upon
It came upon, it came upon

Still through the cloven skies they come
With peaceful wings unfurled
And still their heavenly music floats
O'er all the weary world

Peace on the earth, goodwill to men
From heavens all gracious King
The world in solemn stillness lay
To hear the angels sing

It came upon, it came upon
It came upon, it came upon

Look now, for glad and golden hours
Come swiftly on the wing
Oh, rest beside the weary road
And hear the angels sing

Hear the angels sing on peaceful wings
Hear the angels sing on peaceful wings
On peaceful wings
Hear the angels sing
Hear the angels sing

It Came Upon the Midnight Clear

It came upon the midnight clear,
That glorious song of old,
From angels bending near the earth
To touch their harps of gold!
Peace on the earth, good will to men,
From heaven's all gracious King!
The world in solemn stillness lay
To hear the angels sing.

Still through the cloven skies they come
With peaceful wings unfurled
And still their heavenly music floats
O'er all the weary world;
Above its sad and lowly plains
They bend on hovering wing.
And ever o'er its Babel sounds
The blessed angels sing.

Yet with te woes of sin and strife
The world hath suffered long;
Beneath the angel-strain have rolled
Two thousand years of wrong;
And man, at war with man, hears not
The love song which they bring:
O hush the noise, ye men of strife,
And hear the angels sing.

For lo! the days are hastening on,
By prophet bards foretold,
When, with the ever-circling years,
Shall come the Age of Gold;
When peace shall over all the earth
Its ancient splendors fling,
And all the world give back the song
Which now the angels sing.

i wonder why the bastards (spotify) dont have it, is it because of some music right issue or song referencing biblical sentiments or something?
