"It Came Upon the Midnight Clear" is a Christmas song written by Edmund Hamilton Sears and Richard Storrs Willis.


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 heavens all gracious King
The world in solemn stillness lay
To hear the angels sing
Still through the cloven skies they came
With peaceful wings of furled
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 over its Babel sounds
The blessed angels sing
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 of world send back the song
Which now the angels sing
