|Incipit:||5U112 235(4 )3544 332D5|
How bright these glorious spirits shine!
whence all their white array?
How came they to the blissful seats
of everlasting day?
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 heaven's all-gracious King."
The world in solemn stillness lay,
to hear the angels sing.
