It Came Upon A Midnight Clear Chords

|C F |C |F G7 |C
[Verse 1]
   C     F     C
It came upon a midnight clear
     F        D7      G7
That glorious song of old
     C      F       C
From angels bending near the earth
   F           G7       C
To touch their harps of gold
       E7                 Am
"Peace on the earth, good will to men
     G            D7       G
From heaven's all gracious King;"
    C        F      C
The world in solemn stillness lay,
   F        G7     C
To hear the angels sing
[Verse 2]
      C           F      C
Still through the cloven skies they come
     F        D7      G7
With peaceful wings unfurled,
    C           F        C
And still their heavenly music floats  
     F       G7    C
O'er all the weary world
 E7               Am
Above its sad and lowly plains
     G       D7       G
They bend on hovering wing;
    C    F        C
And ever o'er its Babel sounds
    F       G7     C
The blessed angels sing.
[Verse 3]
  C     F            C
O ye, beneath life's crushing load
      F         D7      G7
Whose forms are bending low,
    C     F        C
Who toil along the climbing way
     F       G7        C
With painful steps and slow
     E7                Am
Look now! for glad and golden hours
     G       D7     G
Come swiftly on the wing;
  C      F        C
O rest beside the weary road
    F        G7     C
And hear the angels sing
[Verse 4]
    C        F        C
For lo!  The days are hastening on
   F        D7      G7
by prophets seen of old
     C        F    C
When with the ever-circling years
      F        G7       C
shall come the time foretold
     Em7         Am
When peace shall cover all the earth
    G       D7        G
its ancient splendors fling
    C        F           C
And the whole world send back the song
      F       G7     C
which now the angels sing!
