2188. Hush, All Ye Sounds of War

1. Hush, all ye sounds of war, ye nations all be still,
A voice of heav’nly joy steals over vale and hill,
O hear the angels sing the captive world’s release,
This day is born in Bethlehem the Prince of Peace.

2. No more divided be, ye families of men,
Old enmity forget, old friendship knit again,
In the new year of God let brothers’ love increase,
This day is born in Bethlehem the Prince of Peace.
