“Peace on

the earth, good-will to men From heaven's all-gra - cious King;"

The world in sol-emo still-ness lay To hear the an- gels sing. A - men.

2

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.

3 O 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: O rest beside the weary road, And hear the angels sing.

4
For lo! the days are hastening on,

By prophets seen of old,
When with the ever-circling years,

Shall come the time foretold,
When the new heaven and earth shall own

The Prince of Peace their King, And the whole world send back the song Which now the angels sing. Amen.

He is here, Whom seers in old time chanted of, while ages ran;
Whom the writings of the prophets promised since the world began:
Then foretold, now manifested to receive the praise of man

Evermore and evermore.

3
o that ever-blessed birthday, when the Virgin, full of grace,
Of the Holy Ghost incarnate bare the Saviour of our race;
And that Child, the world's Redeemer, first displayed His sacred face,

Evermore and evermore.

4
Praise Him, O ye heavens of heavens! Praise Him, angels in the height!
Every power and every virtue sing the praise of God aright:
Let no tongue of man be silent, let each heart and voice unite,
Evermore and evermore. Amen.
