  1. 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 earth, good will to men,
    From heaven´s all-gracious king!"
    The world in solemn stillness lay
    To hear the angels sing.

  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.
