1.In the lone - ly mid - night
On the win - try hill,
Shep-herds heard the an-gels
Sing- ing, 'Peace, good - will.'
Lis-ten, O ye wea-ry,
To the an - gels' song
Un - to you the tid - ings
Of great joy be - long.
2.Though in Da-vid's cit - y
An - gels sing no more,
Love makes an - gel music
On earth's dark - est shore ;
Tho' no heavenly glory
Meet your wondering eyes,
Love can make your dwelling
Bright as par - a - dise.
3.Though the child of Ma - ry,
Sent from heaven on high,
In his man - ger cra - dle
May no lon - ger lie,
Love is King for - ev - er,
Tho' the proud world scorn;
If ye tru - ly seek him,
Christ your Kings is born.
A-men
