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, goodwill to men, From heav'n'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 wings And ever o'er its Babel sounds The blessed angels sing Yet with the woes of sin and strife The world has 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 And ye, beneath life's crushing load, Whose forms are bending low Who toil along the climbing way With painful steps and slow Take heart for comfort, love, and hope Come swiftly on the wing O rest beside the weary road And hear the angels sing For lo the days are hastening by prophet bards fortold When with the ever circling years Comes round the age of gold When peace shall o'er all the earth Its ancient splendours lay And the whole world give back the song Which now the angels sing

It's coming up to December Time to bring out the old family quarrels Time for you to take off and ruin the season again When all I'm asking you for Is a bit of respect for our reason You certainly do find it hard to extend Joy to the world I've lost my sister What peace on earth Is there to be found But if I were to tell you What I honestly want I still hope she comes home for Christmas Our childhood in my head: You and me in a world made of light Everything an adventure, everything alive The shadow cast over your eyes Turning light into dark into spite Everything something backwards, everything a lie Joy to the world I've lost my sister What peace on earth Is there to be found But if I were to tell you What I honestly want I still hope she comes home for Christmas For Christmas

Still, still, still, One can hear the falling snow. For all is hushed, The world is sleeping, Holy Star its vigil keeping. Still, still, still, One can hear the falling snow. Sleep, sleep, sleep, 'Tis the eve of our Saviour's birth. The night is peaceful all around you, Close your eyes, Let sleep surround you. Sleep, sleep, sleep, 'Tis the eve of our Saviour's birth. Dream, dream, dream, Of the joyous day to come. While guardian angels without number, Watch you as you sweetly slumber. Dream, dream, dream, Of the joyous day to come.
