Full Text

1. Sung by angels o’er a hillside,
Sending shepherds to a stall,
Rang the carol of redemption,
Peace on earth—good will to all.

Refrain
Peace on earth, O mighty chorus!
Floating down the stream of time,
Peace on earth, it echoes o’er us,
Ringing still in tones sublime!
Peace on earth, O mighty chorus!
Floating down the stream of time,
Peace on earth, it echoes o’er us,
Ringing still in tones sublime!

2. Hark! We almost hear them singing!
Look! The glory shineth bright!
See the lambs in peaceful slumber
On that blessèd, wondrous night. [Refrain]

3. Mighty carol of redemption!
Mighty King in lowly guise!
Quicken now our comprehension,
Help us see with faith’s clear eyes. [Refrain]
